Five Minute Friday
(one of these days, I'll figure all this blog-code out, & it'll be brilliant!  Until then, I do the best I can.  Please bear with me)

Today's 5-minute Friday post is entitled "Mercy," as always sponsored by Lisa-Jo.
  So here we go! 
Mercy is one of those things that you never know to ask for, but that you always get.  Just like "grace,"we need a lot of mercy to go through life.  Think about it - you yell at your kids for making a mess, THEN you find out that the dog did it.  While it is always hard, I try to ask for forgiveness - when they do, they give you mercy.  When you have empathy (not sympathy) for someone, you're showing mercy to them.  This is not a bad thing.  Showing mercy humanizes the other person - for example, when you give a donation to someone - all of a sudden, they're a person, not an object of sympathy.  Try to remember that as you go through your day - I know I will.

Time's up - later!
