live imperfectly with great delight

I read this saying on a Curly Girl card today that a friend sent to me and I thought – HOW PERFECT!

Live imperfectly…let’s decode this…(yes I’ve been watching way too many murder mystery shows – blame it on NCIS).

Live imperfectly…

Go through every day striving to live as Jesus would want us to live…be kind, help your fellow man (or animal), work hard, love each other, find joy, be grateful…but remember you’re human.

You will make mistakes, tell little white lies, complain, have moments of anger, and sometimes even walk past someone or something that could use your help…ask for forgiveness and try harder the next day.Β  But don’t try to be perfect – it’s far too much pressure!

Live imperfectly…dance a little dance, sing a little song, smile at a stranger, lend someone a hand, stop to appreciate the little things, say please and thank you, and do it all…with great delight!

Realize that you are blessed each day!

  2. Sometimes I wonder about you Patty? How can we be so in tune so far away? My first post in ages ends with me saying that I’m not perfect, just doing the best I can?
    You’re asleep right now, and will awaken to this message, I hope you know that your friendship and our seemingly kindred connection warms my heart. x

    • Oh Meg – I’ve been so worried about you! I haven’t checked for a few days, but you hadn’t posted…I hope you are doing well. And I’m so glad we’ve connected. God works in mysterious ways!
