Tuesday Prayer for 8/12/14:

Dear God:

Help me to be honest with my forgiveness
and my asking for it.


I used to think we were
anointed
with oil and things that came to us
could
slide
off.

We are
anointed

with tar.

Everything that touches us sticks.
Everything takes time, recognition and intention to remove.
Everything has a residue.

Forgiveness, true forgiveness, recognizes what remains and
stains and
scars and
changes and

trusts love

to do

what love

must do.

Amen.
