I make mistakes; I'll be the second to admit it. Jean Kerr
Jean Kerr, who was known for her comedies such as PLEASE DON'T EAT THE DAISIES, probably meant this as a tongue-in-cheek observation. I appreciate her humor and her insights in to family life.
Whe I read this, however, I thought of the Father's all-knowing power. He knows when I've made a mistake. Whether or not I admit it, He knows. He also knows if I try to rectify that mistake or if I let it slide.
He has given me--given all of us--the gift of repentance, to wipe clean our slates if we but accept this most precious of gifts.
This I know for sure: I make mistakes. Power comes in repentance.
