Forgiveness.

Yesterday my heart was in a tangle. It showed up in a lot of different ways.

If you were with me at all yesterday, you might have noticed, or you might have not noticed. That’s the way those tangles work sometimes. I did not cultivate very much attention yesterday.

Did you know that sometimes you need a friend to help you untangle the knot? I’ve spent so much time helping children untangle knots in shoelaces, and other places. Now I am the child, needing my knot untangled.

My friend Vern sent me this poem this morning.

You forgive me for liking you too much,
And I’ll forgive you for not liking me enough.

You forgive me for missing you so,
And I’ll forgive you for being so cold.

You forgive me for the loud racing of my heart,
And I’ll forgive you for not hearing it.

You forgive me for playing your games,
And I’ll forgive you for toying with my emotions.

You forgive me for finding you so attractive,
And I’ll forgive you for not noticing.

You forgive me for raising you up so high,
And I’ll forgive you for bringing me down so low.

You forgive me for wanting to be with you,
And I’ll forgive you for avoiding me.

You forgive me for being so pathetic,
And I’ll forgive you for taking advantage of it.

You forgive me for not being able to let go,
And I’ll forgive you for never having latched on.

You forgive me for having hopes and dreams,
And I’ll forgive you for crushing them.

Forgiveness brings inner peace.
Do we have a deal…

Then he added,
…When you forgive, you in no way change the past – but you sure do change the future…

Take a look at today’s readings.

It’s all about forgiveness.

Did you know that you can experience forgiveness with water? I did, this morning in the shower, when the water hit my shoulders. Thank you. And you can too.

This morning, a child named Lucia will experience the water too.

Allegri–Miserere

Know forgiveness.

Elton John–The Last Song

Be well, and at peace,
