Sunday Reflection: Giving Yourself A Break – Love Generously

Everyone makes mistakes. No one is perfect. I am usually harder on myself than others. Giving yourself space to be imperfect and human is one of the best things we can do for ourselves. Personally I have learned this the hard way. A lifetime of being a people pleaser and making errors along the way has made me take a step back and to realize I can’t please everyone and hope that they will forgive me and more importantly I won’t lose sleep over it all. It is important to show grace to everyone.

Another thought for this Sunday is to let love be real. Love one another. Be vigorous in serving ones higher power. Celebrate hope and give hospitality to strangers. That doesn’t mean always inviting them into your house but extending care to those who are in need. There are many things we can do to do good things and to kick bad stuff to the curb. Avoid revenge. People who do you wrong will have to face the music someday. Treat your enemies as you would wish to be treated and maybe they won’t be enemies much longer.

May you all find peace this week. I am hoping for the best for all of us. Grace, peace and love you crazy people.
