Sunday Blessing: it is between you and God

My Sunday Blessing comes from Mother Teresa. We will hear many things about the tragedy that happened ten years ago today. There is little that I can add to the voices of sorrow and lives that have been forever changed because of choices other human beings made. I offer only what I know to be true, and today, nothing seems more true than this quote.

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
— Mother Teresa
