Well, Webster says that perfect means being without fault or defect.  The greek word means complete, or having all parts.  Those definitions are a little different, huh?  I will not, in this life, be without fault or defect, and there is no point in trying.  However, I can be complete or have all I need.  I am NOT there, nor do I think I will be there any time soon (like in the next decade), but I can take steps towards completeness.  There are things I can do everyday in a quest to being 'perfect'.

Today I will practice speaking kindly to my children.
Today I will practice spending my time wisely.  (And on that note, I have to get off the computer!)

What will you practice today?

    Today I will practice compassion and an attitude of serving towards my ill husband.
