Forgive Us

Forgive us for when we haven’t taken time to enjoy listening to a bird sing.

Forgive us for when we haven’t appreciated our bodies, the temples of Your Spirit.

Forgive us for when we haven’t remembered to thank You for the beauty of Creation.

Forgive us for when we haven’t more openly shared our emotions with You.

Forgive us for when we haven’t acted silly, for no reason other than to have fun.

Forgive us for when we have seen a moment to share a laugh, but didn’t.

Forgive us for when we have worked hard without taking time for recreation.

Forgive us for when we have walked by a purple flower and didn’t notice its beauty.

Forgive us for when we have looked up at a starry night sky and failed to be impressed.

Forgive us for when we have seen children laughing, but were “too busy” to smile.
