Pic of the day – Because “Always” Isn’t

Broad sweeping words like “always” and forever and “never” are, I suspect, beyond the true scope of understanding of anyone human. But when we try to avoid using them we nitpick and paint ourselves into unpleasant corners. I find I rather like David Roche’s thoughts on “The Church of 80% Sincerity.” Try, and try hard to be a good person. Make it most of the time. Don’t beat yourself up when you can’t quite manage it, but get up and try again. Keep trying. Today, our family is experiencing much sadness because of misunderstandings and inappropriate expectations around the use of the word “Always.”
