Beloved, laugh with me at my lack of gracefulness, at my faltering and falling flat on my face. Laugh with me, lest I weep from my own inadequacies. Give me courage and a sense of a humor as I face my hard hearted leaning toward perfectionism, for catching myself a long, long way off from my faithful promises and daily living. Beloved, give me courage and comfort me for my falling and failing and for trying again, for remembering what I have done well as well as what I have done badly, for holding onto those good faithful promises to make them good. Laugh with me generously, my Beloved, and help me accept my imperfections so I may fully accept my responsibilities, and try again and love on and live boldly for kindness' sake every day. Amen.
