We have probably all had the opportunity to forgive another who has mistreated us in some way. In one such situation, our house was located on a corner, and the teenagers in our community decided that the side of our yard between the sidewalk and the street would be the depository for their glass pop bottles and more. We were always cleaning them up.
One spring day our little boy was barefoot and scooted over the sidewalk into this area before we could stop him. He got a deep cut in the bottom of his foot from one of those broken glass bottles. I took care of the wound and gently comforted him.
In my prayer I began to lift off the fleshly descriptions of the teenagers and really cherish their true, Soul-defined nature.
