No sooner asked for, than “HARD” arrived

The standing ovation at the end of the Messiah

Good Morning, God!

It was JUST yesterday that I was asking for Your Help, God, in the HARD WORK of learning. And then this very morning I find myself “learning” the new iLife computer program in order to transfer a photo. I am HAVING to unlearn the old program and relearn the new one — with a certain amount of frustration. As my mother asked yesterday, “Where is the MANUAL?” Where, indeed, God!

There are no manuals as we are now completely launched into the World of Heuristic Learning! That used to be called “Trial and Error”. Muddling Through, is another description.

Ah, God, if only we could try again and again and keep on trying with our interpersonal learning! Hmm. Yes, that IS what we do. The only complication with human relations is that sometimes it is ONE STRIKE and you are OUT. We need a better Forgiveness Program, Sigh. You say You HAVE ONE for us? If only we ASKED?

Today, God, let me ASK YOU for an upgrade to my Forgiveness Program! I ask with fear and trembling, God! You are SO QUICK to respond! And I know that an “Upgrade” will require unlearning and relearning and frustration and — INCREASE MY HUMILITY.

Hmmm. Humility seems to be a KEY FACTOR in forgiving. “Forgive us our debts AS WE FORGIVE OUR DEBTORS.” Ah, on to the DAY — with humility and thanksgiving.
