Day 13

The landscape of our human emotions is vast and varied.  In some places, there are deep, lush forests;  others are rich and abundant fertile land; and there are the less hospitable climes as well – arid deserts and frozen tundra.  It is easy to walk the grassy fields of ‘I love you,’ engaging to swim in the lakes of ‘let’s work together.’  Far more difficult is the glacial ‘I am ashamed,’ the burning sands of ‘I’ve let myself down.’  In our continual exploration of this universe of thoughts, feelings, and actions, may we have the undaunted courage to say ‘I’m sorry,’ and ‘forgive me.’  With eyes and hearts wide open, we say Amen.
