Fourth Sunday of Lent

Forgive me for my lack of patience.
Forgive me for my inability to be still.
Forgive my body's failure to keep up with my intentions...
...and my intentions' deception of my body's limits.
Forgive me when I forget to breathe.
Forgive me for losing sight of you.
Forgive my relationship foibles and failures.
Forgive my hubris and my self-reliance.
Forgive me for not keeping up...
...and for not slowing down.
Forgive my limits in love and grace.
Forgive me for fracturing in so many directions.
Forgive me when I fall apart.
Forgive me. Forgive me.
