Sometimes I Am Astounded...

...by my lack of love.

I have been forgiven of much, and I have been given innumerable blessings. Why, then, should it bother me in the slightest when a silver Mitsubishi with Johnson County plates pulls out in front of me illegally and then proceeds to ride the brakes the whole way down the hill?

More troublingly, why should I become enraged and want to do something -- anything -- to show my displeasure to the Mitsubishi's driver, to anyone else nearby, and, indeed, to the whole world?

If I have received forgiveness for every fault, every mistake, every willful act of disobedience, then why don't I relax and pray for the will to love Mitsubishi Man with my whole heart?

And why don't I smile more?
