Who is in front of me right now? Do they have my full attention? Do I realize they are made in the image of God? Am I treating them that way? Am I extending them the grace that has been extended to me? Beyond the surface of refusing to sit criss cross applesauce on her dot, what is the yearning of the little 5 year old heart in front of me? As much as he gets on my nerves, do I realize that Jesus died for him too? Though I care way too much what she thinks, do I see that behind the power trip is really a whole bunch of insecurity?  

May He grant us the grace and patience to see people as He sees them while we are present in our relationships.
