I don’t make it a habit of adding comments to God’s Minute but I feel that I must this time around.
I was telling my Priest a few days ago.
How come I can’t say - Ok...I’m going to forgive the Quebec Security Staff of the way they took my job away from me.
I will forgive the MLA’S for that China Style verdict of banning me from the Legislature.
I will forgive the Saint John Police Force of the way they tried to get my jailed and I could have gotten a record on my file for the rest of life.
I will forgive the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission of the way they promote racism and the discrimination against the poor in this Province.
I will forgive everyone and move on with my life.
How come I can’t just forgive and move on?????
Jesus was crucified and he forgave.
I am crucified mentally so therefore maybe I would follow the same approach?
Then today I received the God’s minute of the day!
Very strange indeed.
But the question is this?
How come I can’t forgive these people who did me great harm?
As someone told me the other day?
Charles? If you don’t move on? You are going to take an heart attack!!!!
Well, if I was pure Acadian blood?
I would have surely been dead from an heart attack a very long time ago but I’m half Scottish and we all know there’s nothing more stubborn that a darn Scotsman!!!!!
Oh well here’s the God’s Minute of the day!!!
HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE
WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES; THE CHASTISEMENT
FOR OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM, AND BY HIS STRIPES
WE ARE HEALED.
( ISAIAH 53:5 *NKJV )
Dear Pastor Allen,
Indeed we are healed of our transgressions, and iniquities
through the forgiveness of our sins. For it is written; HE HAS
DELIVERED US FROM THE POWER OF DARKNESS AND
CONVEYED US INTO THE KINGDOM OF THE SON OF HIS
LOVE, IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS
BLOOD, THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.
( COLOSSIANS 1:13-14 )
When we think about how much forgiveness God shows
toward mankind, let us remember the words of our Savior
Jesus Christ, as he hung on the cross, "FATHER, FORGIVE
THEM, FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY DO." So
let those words be an example for you when you find yourself
angry with another! ( LUKE 23:34 )
After all it is also written: IF YOU FORGIVE MEN THEIR
TRESPASSES, YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER WILL ALSO
FORGIVE YOU. BUT IF YOU DO NOT FORGIVE MEN
THEIR TRESPASSES, NEITHER WILL YOUR FATHER
FORGIVE YOUR TRESPASSES. ( MATTHEW 6:14-15 )
So Charles, if you have been angered by another, why
not try to forgive them instead of holding a grudge. After all
your heart and mind will be at peace when you do! Amen.
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen

This Daily Message was sent by request to:
Charles Leblanc at
A very determine bunch of protesters.
I showed up and the first thing that caught my eye was the Fredericton Police Cruiser park right beside the protesters.
But they didn’t stay long. They left the area and that’s the way it should be.
The Police should only be present if trouble begins.
There’s more than 30 people who showed up in the snowy and rainy condition.
The weather was just terrible.
Speaker after speaker spoke against the war in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The episode lasted more than one hour and everyone quickly went home.
I got to give credit to the people who showed up to voice their concerns because if I wasn’t a blogger?
I would have stayed home!
Ohhhhh....Another group of determine people were present.
The students from the STU Journalism course.
That’s for another blog.....lol
