FORGIVE LORD



A must see vimeo - 
(didn't know how to import it here - sorry!)




..........our lack of patience with others - whether their cognition is all there or not

..........our desire to keep doing 'our thing' when someone asks us a question

..........our sense of frustration when someone repeats things over and over

..........our lack of empathy for the losses another may feel

..........our simply doing our 'duty visit' rather than being fully engaged with the person

..........our hardened hearts

..........our discomfort with those 
             who are different from us

..........and everywhere there is the word 'our' it truly is 'MY'!

..........can you think of more?????


Father, forgive!

Hi Karin, I'm trying to catch up a little since getting back from Arkansas. Glad I didn't miss this one.... Excellent post.... Forgive us, Father, for so many things! We --as a people these days-- seem to be more selfish and less caring than past generations. We are too busy to show love and compassion to others. Forgive us...

Hugs,
Betsy

Thank you, Karin,for the wonderful video and the prayer. We have so much for which we need forgiveness -- much of it because of simply not being aware of others around us.

This is one of the most outstanding video clips that I have seen. We use it in our local hospital for orientation to help new volunteers better understand their patients. Each time it brings tears to my eyes.
Blessing to you...as you continue this journey.

Thanks for the good reminder that our self-involvement knows no limits. Thankfully, neither does God's grace, or we would all be lost. have a great weekend.
