IT WORKS BOTH WAYS

“And be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another as God has forgiven you.”

–Ephesians 4:32

Especially today, we live in such an unforgiving world.  One mistake can destroy a person’s life in an instant.  However, Christ taught how to forgive, like he forgave Peter when he denied Him three times.  Then, when Jesus asked Peter three times, “Do you love me? “Feed my lambs, tend my sheep, feed my sheep.”

So in forgiving others, we restore their responsibility.  Our forgiving actions restore their dignity and we become Jesus to them.  We may not be able to forgive the hurt others have inflicted on us, but with God’s help, we can remember without the pain.

CALL TO COURAGE

If you look closely, exhaustion seems to permeate everyone everywhere these days.  People are either afraid or idle to go back to work.  Parents want their children back in school to catch up on their education.  The flow of optimism is faint, but giving up on life isn’t a good choice either.  I am praying for a wave of courage to inspire everyone in this world to get up and go about their business with optimism and courage.

Boing!  Less Zoom meetings. It’s time to see everyone in person.  I have reset myself from the virus setback.  Have you?

EVER SO READY TO TRAVEL

Hot Summer Day in Tuscany, Italy

I declare, I was made for traveling.  Barring these past two years, I love visiting new places and experiencing different cultures and customs.  This time around my Beloved and moi yearn to forge into freedom away from home, taking our two pets and discovering where God loves different people in new places.  I’m so anxious to get on the road and see how God will open our heart and mind to exhilarating unfamiliarity.

Hearing my spouse say, “Now, now, grasshopper, be patient a little while longer!”  Okay, dear…and Lord have mercy!

“Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom.  The Twelve were with him.”

–Luke 8:1
