I just took a stroll around my back yard and discovered that someone stole almost all my rhubarb plants. Now really, why on earth do that when the earth abounds in rhubarb and I would have gladly shared?
I conclude that it must be:
A-someone who feels they don’t deserve my consideration or kindness.
B- someone who prefers stealing to asking.
C- someone who feels forgiveness is easier to get than permission.
Ron and I originally watched the stealer take several plants away 5-6 years ago. Oddly enough, the plants never grew for him, so I guess he’s back for a refill. These won’t grow either; he keeps planting them under his apple tree.
As for me? Life becomes so much easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got.–Robert Brault
Prayer- Lord, help us forgive those who steal from us, whether it be rhubarb, or relationship, but never let them steal our joy. Amen.
