There are people whom I'm genuinely frustrated with in my life (and obviously others I'm not).
Yet I'm reminded that God is the only One who can control a person and even He chooses not to. He gave humanity freewill to make choices in life, even though we rebel.
So today I choose to engage those people with real love - a messy, ugly commitment that looks like a mudpie, yet somehow tastes better than a bitter tongue.
I hope (and pray) that by serving I can lead the relationship further toward a real-deal transparency instead of the masks we usually assume we fool each other with.
