Sometimes that happens

Standard

Col 3v13This morning my almost-four-year-old and I went to Freddies. It was a typical Saturday morning at Fred Meyer’s: busy busy busy. The parking lot was pretty full.

I saw a spot to my left, put my indicator on and paused to wait for an oncoming car.

And that guy took my spot. Hello sir, I had my blinker on! Rude.

Me: “That guy just took the parking spot we have been waiting for!”

Almost-four-year-old: “Sometimes that happens. You just need to forgive.”

Oh sweet pea. You are so right.

I wish forgiveness was as easy as she thinks it is. My heart seems so complicated. My daughter is my mentor.

Since God chose you to be the holy people whom he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tender-hearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. You must make allowance for each other’s faults and forgive the person who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. And the most important piece of clothing you must wear is love. Love is what binds us all together in perfect harmony. (Colossians 3:12-14)

How are you today?
