Your post really makes me smile!
You are right. Anyone can love their good friends; but to pray for your enemies, forgive them, love them... now that is a miracle of God.
Your words remind me of the only parent to forgive Gary Ridgeway (Green River Murderer) when he was sentenced this past year:
"I forgive you for what you've done. You've made it difficult to live up to what I believe, and that is what God says to do, and that is forgive, and he doesn't say to forgive just certain people, he says forgive all. So... you are forgiven, sir."
Such people truly humble and inspire me. Thanks for being one, too, FMZ!!!!!!
