The Forgiving Place is somewhere inside all of us. If we search for it we will eventually find it. When we do, we are amazed at the magnitude of our own depth and life. Women have an empathy and compassion that is not easily understood. Few men have the ability of empathy and compassion as that of a woman. Giving birth and raising her children gives her an insight not otherwise attained. The Forgiving Place calls to the surface that compassion and love. Although Christian based, TFP is not preachy nor is it condemming, but a gentle nudge of the heart and soul to remember who they are and where they are going when this part of life is over.
Allow me to
introduce myself. My name is Pat. I live in the great state of Alabama.
I'm 67 years young, and am the very proud mother of three beautiful
daughters. Two daughter have two children and the youngest has three. Five boys and two girls. I have
been a widow since 1989.
I am a Born
Again Christian and love the Lord with all my heart, soul and mind. Without
Him I would not be here today to welcome you! That is the truth, because
I am a sexual and mental abuse survivor! I survived in the victory of Christ.
I give Him all glory for things accomplished in my life! Forgiveness of
my abusers, and myself, was the biggest stone I had to hurdle! That is
why my site is named The Forgiving Place. We all have to come to that place
before we can go forward in our lives. Without forgiveness, we stay and
live in the past! Praise God, we don't have to live there anymore!
In my spare
time I like to play with my favorite program, PSP. A lot of the graphics
you see on my site, I've made in PSP. I love taking tutorials and expanding
on them. Making other things to go with the items in the tutorials. The
header above and buttons below are a good example. The teapot was a tutorial.
I made the plate, saucer and cup to go with the teapot. They aren't perfect,
but I enjoyed making them. :) There are tons of sites on the web that offer
tutorials. I enjoy searching out those sites, and finding just the graphics
I want to make. Also, there are groups that offer tutorials to their members
each week. If you enjoy seeing the beautiful graphics online, why not get
a graphics program and make some of your own! IMHO, Paint Shop Pro is the
best out there!
