When my mother showed me her paraphrase of the Lord’s prayer, one line caught my eye. I memorized it because, frankly, I needed it, too:
“Lord, help me to forgive those who tread on my faith, my feelings, and my heart.”
Amen. If you find yourself dreading the family gathering this Thanksgiving, determine now to forgive all past wrongs as well as whatever may pop up this Thursday! I hope you enjoy some turkey, too!
