I should be done by now…

 
“Nothing is ever over.
You thread things on your life
and think you’ve finished with them
but you haven’t because it’s like beads on a string
and they come around again.
“When it comes around again then if it is possible,
give what you failed to give before to someone else.
You will have made reparation, for we are all one person.”
 
Elizabeth Goudge, ‘The Scent of Water’, c. 1963
 
My eyes were closed in the back seat of the car as we drove home in the dark from our days’ excursion to the mountains.  I was having a silent conversation with Jesus, “Forgive me, Lord, for my short attitude today with my husband.  For my sarcasm and biting words.  Forgive me for my selfishness with my sister, my mother-in-law, my disrespect…”

I’m so very honored to be Guest Posting over at Finding Heaven Today for the amazing Jen Ferguson.  Won’t you follow me over there to read the rest of this post?

    Dolly, thanks for stopping by to comment. Your words made me smile–it is all about, as a friend has often counseled me, 'Repenting early and often.'

    I'm so thankful his mercies are new every morning.
