I am sorry I burnt the bacon again. I wasn’t paying attention. The pan was too hot and I burnt the bacon. Will you forgive me?
I am sorry.
Wil you forgive me?
I am sorry I burnt the bacon.
Will you forgive me?
“Forgiveness is the final form of love.”
― Reinhold Niebuhr
Making mistakes and asking for forgiveness.
“Yes, I will forgive you,” the bacon eater said.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
— Isaiah 1:18
Is is easier to forgive others than it is to forgive yourself?
Giving grace to others but hating yourself for the mistakes you made. The voices in your head discouraging you. You can’t even make bacon right. You burnt the food again. bacon burner, bacon burner, bacon burner. Such a simple task and you failed. All you are good for is cleaning litter boxes and washing dishes. I’ll bet you can’t even get that right.
My dear bacon burning friend, we don’t have to be perfect. Wash the pan, scrub off the burnt bacon and try again.
It is okay. I made a mistake. Well now, let us washt he pan and make more bacon. I will pay attention this time and not burn the bacon again. It’s okay to make mistakes. I am not a mistake, I am not a mistake. I made a mistake.
p.s. There are two spelling mistakes in the story. Or typing mistakes, as I know how to spell the words correctly. Did my mistakes jump out at you? Can you forgive me?
