The Scent of the Violet

Mark Twain said: "Forgiveness is the scent of the violet on the heal that crushes it." Isn't that beautiful? I have been blessed with this fragrance; it wafts toward me, though undeserved. I am drowning in a sea of gratitude... and the most beautiful aroma surrounds me.

Truly God is good, and, in His goodness, anything we suffer with Him becomes good as well.

You left that very same quote by Mark Twain on my blog about forgiveness. It's as beautiful as the violet!

Cynthia: I love the imagery the quote evokes. It makes me look at Mark Twain in quite a different way!
