Shabbat Lights By Karin Foreman

“Whoever loves his brother remains in light, and there is nothing in him to cause a fall.”  —1 John 2:10

I believe that happiness goes hand in hand with forgiveness.

“Simply put, you believe that things or people make you happy, but this is not true.”  —Wayne Dyer

What brings happiness to the soul is letting go of anything bad that has passed.  Easy to say but difficult to live it.  That’s when the radiant eyes of Jesus fills us with compassion so we can receive the gift of forgiveness by the light of His love for us.  I can testify to this truth first because God forgives me of my transgressions, which in turn allows me to forgive the offenses of others towards me.  Surely you know this too.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit from me.”  –Psalm 51:10

Rest assured, happiness and forgiveness marry, and the heavens rejoice for each repentance.
