The Forgiveness Mission


CARD 1 FORGIVE (anemone): Forgiveness can be one of the greatest gifts we give or receive. Can you express gratitude for being forgiven or give forgiveness to one in need?

Notes from the artist: This was the first plant drawing of a 100 day drawing practice. I had cut some flowers that were starting to fade in the garden to bring into the studio. This one started to fall apart as I drew it and I kept repeating to the flower that I was sorry. It was so graceful and seemed to “say” to me: “I forgive you. Now can you forgive yourself, your loved ones, everyone & everything. Let go with nothing but love.”

Isn’t forgiveness in all those forms one of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves and to others?
