"I am always in need of forgiveness, a necessary ingredient in life. Everyone needs to be forgiven, since we are all human and fallible. Forgiveness is a new start, a fresh beginning. Expressing regret, being truly contrite, is a sincere plea for mercy and compassion. However, terrible the sin, the sinner finds hope and strength in pardon and is awakened to the reality of Your love. "Forgive us our trespasses.. " I ask for Your forgiveness, Lord, to be renewed in Your love. AMEN."
