Consider the lilies of the field . . .

Confiding in a friend, Emily Dickinson said, "Consider the lilies of the field" is the only commandment I have never broken." Speaking for myself, if you could roll back my skin and bones and see directly into the full content of my soul, you would know I can relate to Emily Dickinson. I wish I were lily white, but I am not. No, I haven't physically broken every letter of the Law, but in spirit I have broken more of the Ten Commandments then I have kept. When I have it has never ended well.

More and more I am aware of my need for God to forgive me of all my trespasses, and less and less aware of those who have trespassed against me.
