let us forgive one another

 

The world can turn us, toward a bad end sometimes – I, no less than any other.

 

At the end of the day, we all fall short and misstep.

 

We are none of us, above the other.

 

It is the nature of our sinew, to sin – even among the strongest. For we are, after all, made of dust.

 

And we are all of us, thrown upon this rock as lost children; none of us, knowing the way.

 

But the greatest misstep and sin of all, is to not forgive.

 

So let us forgive one another, for our days on this earth are short.

 

And our days fly past, like a butterfly.

 

 

From my heart to yours,

it truly warms me

 

Always a very fine pleasure sir. You put a smile on my face. And it’s been a rather drab day, until now. Got news my 94 year-old aunt passed today. So it truly warms me.

Thank you for the reply, and the kind words; and I am sorry to hear of your aunt's passing.
