fix it and forget it

"But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.  Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness." James 3:17-18

It had all the makings of a delicious novel... simple, quick and little involvement.  The title of the slow cooker cookbook said all i longed to hear, "Fix it and Forget it".  Who could resist?  Not i!  The way my brain functions, or non-functions, my family and i will surely reap comforting and filling benefits from such meals.

Food isn't the only element in life to possibly profit from a "fix it and forget it" attitude.  How about....

a heated argument
alienation in a relationship
a selfish decision
lies and deception
a jealous fit
jabbing comments

Lord, when the words or actions i thrash out on others are wrong, help me find the wisdom and courage to fix the situation, forget it and move on to a better path.  Let me fill the one hurt with comfort, truth and peace, as You in turn, fill me with Your comfort and peace.

have a righteous-filled day!
