'I wish I were big enough to admit my shortcomings, brave enough to accept criticism, compassionate enough to understand human frailties, human enough to be thoughtful and open enough to be devoted to the love of God.' ~Gordon Taggart
These few lines of wisdom can best be described as beautiful and so appropriate. They merit careful reflection and can even be used as a personal prayer any time of the day. We sometimes need to be open and honest in acknowledging our frailties and limitations. Such honesty is not meant to be a put down but more about giving us the opportunity to turn it all into our favour. The invitation is to take it to the next step and to be open to the love of God in our lives. The cynic might add what difference could this make? But love will always make a difference. To be open to the love of God in our life opens us to endless possiblities. This is a good place to be especially in a world that often seems to be spinning a vacuum.
