Just some thoughts:
While in the car on the way I asked one of my young grandson’s about some “mischief” he had gotten himself into earlier that week. In his telling of such he said something rather profound, something I will never forget.
on one shoulder and the devil sitting on
the other and in the middle is my heart.
Sometimes I just need help in trying to be good.”
Wow! Wow a second time. One does not have to be a child to identify with those thoughts of wisdom. “Sometimes I feel like I have an angel on my shoulder, the devil on the other, and my heart right in the middle.” I wanted to tell him as he grew older it would get better, easier, but I did not. If the truth be told it doesn't get much easier.
I knew better because we all need help with trying to be good no matter what our age. It seems something is always sitting on our shoulders.
