When the penitent and the aggrieved come together in forgiveness and renewal, there is love.

Short on words - long on meaning. You said it all, in spades. Been there, done that, with the exception of the last line - just didn't happen. Linda

Wow Alison...never heard the whole incident broken down so well...powerful word use in this one for sure. I especially like 'fearful imaginings.' Provokes instant stress into the reader. Well done!
