Lately I have been thinking about life & how I am ALWAYS learning from my kiddos. They make me want to be better, kinder, & sweeter. They remind me of my imperfections- sometimes daily. And as humbling as it is to apologize to one of them (sometimes daily too) I want them to be able to see the "plank in their own eyes" one day too! So... when my young, beautiful, longing to be grown, & all to wise to this world daughter asked me "what makes grown-ups not talk to each other? Don't they read the bible?" I smile with my face @ her wise words, yet my heart cries wondering the very same thing! "I do not know the answer to that sweet stuff" I say. "But I am praying believing that He who breathed this world into existence is carefully working ALL things out even as we sleep." I wonder how we as adults can expect to show Jesus is we aren't listening to Him ourselves? I heard it once said that "when a child learns that adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent & when he learns to forgive, he becomes an adult.....
To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover the prisoner was YOU.
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
