I don't like where I am on this journey:
"My friend never fails to irritate me when she says those things. God, open her eyes or smite her or something!"
"I always fail to cast off my irritation when my friend says those things. God, forgive me and purify my heart!"
"There is my friend, a child of God! I rejoice in any hurt she unknowingly or knowingly does me, joining it to the sufferings of Christ!"
"There is my friend, a child of God! How can I serve her?"
I have the Directions, and the Heavenly Fuel. I have companions for the journey, and yet there I am, pulling 360's in the parking lot....
