Miserere Mei Deus
I don't want to detract from this beautiful day, this beautiful season, so I won't go into the experiences and thoughts that have brought me to this place.
As I get older I find I'm trading answers for questions; being in what is hopefully 'middle age' means I probably have equal numbers of both.
And some of my 'answers' I've traded for a willingness to let go of things that I finally understand I'll never understand.
This much I'm sure of: There is far more mercy in the Atonement of Jesus Christ than we sometimes want there to be, as though there were a limit to how much grace there is to go around. And if I can be forgiven for being the petty, selfish, silly woman I voluntarily elect to be, how much more willing must a loving Savior be to bless and transform the life of someone whose struggles are not of their choosing?
It's been a good week for reflection. A good week for reconsidering the 'givens' in my life.
A good week for rebirth.
