Lent, Day 19

My brain does not like to slow down.  Meditation is not an easy thing for me.  But if I accomplish 20 things in a day, and haven't taken time for quiet meditation, then it isn't a good day.  I generally like to sit at the end of the day, and take a look back.  What was good, what went wrong, how can I change and grow?  I tend to require a lot of do-overs.

I think about how I get frustrated with my boys when I have to tell them over and over again to do things.   (Even knowing that I am no better!!)   But I also think about how proud I am when they do it right.  I love to celebrate and make a big deal out of great behavior.

I am glad my Father is merciful, and far more patient than I am.
