What will you do to earn a Gold Star or some other prize? I have blown bubbles with Super Bubble to win a t-shirt, raced to look up Bible verses to win a Bible, dressed up for Jazzercize to win an exercise shirt, and other sorts of crazy. That competitive spirit is obviously within me. Last night, my “smart” watch wouldn’t register enough times standing to close the fitness circle. Normally, it is way over. And this was going to break my perfect record. I stayed up to midnight, laying and sitting down, then getting up and jumping around, and it never did register. Ah! Sometimes, I can’t be perfect even when it is something I can usually do well.
The good news is that I don’t have to be perfect in the way perfection is often understood. My goal should simply be to allow Holy Love to stir up the flame of the Spirit within me.
This morning my prayer is a prayer of gratitude for those whom I admire, who have taught me by their presence in my life, who have poured love into my heart. That has been perfect for me!
Please join with me in prayer:
