I thank you Lord, for the perfection you provide, since I cannot.


I Passed Without It
It’s been
a hard day
and I’m tired.
Some of my
biggest weaknesses
have been challenged
and some of my
best strengths, tested.
I think I passed,
not as perfectly
as I would have liked.
Perfection never
has been mine
I crave it,
court it.
I think I passed.
I’m tired
but I passed
without it.
Kathy Adams 2012

It's a wonderful thing when we can accept our own imperfection. Lovely poem.

Now I lie me down to sleep.
I have done the best I can
with today, but dear Lord
if I wake another day, I
promise to try harder....

For You *Kathy* in light
of your poem..Lady Vivian

Just to say that you "passed without it," is perfection enough. A skirmish won in the war of life ain't nothing to be ashaed of.
Reviewed by Linda Hill 8/20/2012
Perfection has never been mine either, but as you do I strive for it. As Human Beings none of us is perfect, but once we get to Heaven all will change. I like the song, One Day At A Time. I do the best I can and leave the rest to God.

Many blessings and love,
