Talk to me, Abba
You know those moments when things people say and do to you catch you completely off guard. You are in shock that anyone could even act that way to you. I have had a couple of these instances lately.

It's no coincidence that I have been meditating on Titus 3:2.
"to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing humility to all men."
The other day, I was drawing with sidewalk chalk with my girls. I wrote out the last part of the verse and my seven-year-old pointed out that I left the l out of humility. Ironic. Of course, I fixed it. I also had a good laugh at my own humanity. We are but dust.
