Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
and his mercy endures for ever.
My turn comes, and I roll down my window apologizing for being in the wrong lane. "That's OK," comes the reply, "we all make mistakes." And the man smiles as he quickly solves the problem and I am on my way.
So simple. So unexpected. So powerful. I feel like I have received a blessing. Like forgiveness has been poured upon me. Like I have been absolved from a host of larger failings. Like I have been told I am worthy.
Mercy is not a small thing.
