Being Forgetful

Being Forgetful

I enjoyed reading this book on how to remember things we want to remember, but then so many things we often wish we could forget. Thinking about remembering, I recall the chorus of a song I learned as a boy: “Show me where you’ve brought me from and where I might have been. Remember I’m human, and humans forget, so remind me, remind me, Dear Lord.”

A part of my daily morning mantra that I recently added goes: “May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in my sight, O lord, my strength and my redeemer.” I am a believer in the power of the divine life force that dwells in all of us, everything really. Being mindful means staying aware in the moment just Who and Whose we truly are. I remember the advice that Jesus gave the boys (the same applies to girls.) When he sent them out to speak for him, he said, “Take no thought before hand as to what you shall say for in the moment that you need them the words will be given you.” Inspiration after all is just being mindful of the Spirit that dwells in and through out all things, us included.

Don’t forget. To help you remember, here is a child’s joke. “The child asks would you forget me in a day? The loving parent answers, No. A week? No. A month? No. A year? No. A hundred years? Never. Knock, Knock. Who’s there? Did you forget me already?

Your friend and fellow traveler,

Forever And Ever, Amen.
