    if we can truly forgive, it benefits us more than the forgiven.

    Forgiveness certainly does leave the heart pure and clean, like this fresh snowfall.

  3. Teresa says:

    What a beautiful description of forgiveness.

  4. This is beautifully crafted, Becca.

  5. shoreacres says:

    So lovely – words and image, both. I used to know a pastor who would dismiss the congregation at the end of the service with the words, “The past is forgiven, the future is open”. Your haiku reminded me of that.

  6. Forgiveness heals. A beautiful take on the prompt.

  7. odyzz says:

  11. In Psalm 51, David begs God to wash him whiter than snow. There are echoes of that plea in your words…
