Be Ye Kind One to Another
"That evening of the row was our lowest depths;
miserable people cannot afford to dislike each other.
Cruel blows of fate call for extreme kindness
in the family circle."
from I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
It is cold outside.
January has been a long month.
Cabin fever sets in.
Work is slow for those of us in construction.
Bills don't slow down for bad weather.
Tempers flare, nerves get rubbed raw.
Time to avoid confrontations,
or to quickly forgive.
A good time for me to remember the verse from Ephesians:
And be ye kind one to another,
tenderhearted, forgiving one another,
even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
