Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.

There are times when I open my big mouth before I think about it. And I did it last night, and I hurt a number of people who didn't deserve it. I've apologised to the people concerned but now I have to think about how I can start to heal the hurts I've caused.

Please God, help me to learn to sit down and shut up, to listen and to learn. Maybe this is what part of this contemplation is all about - I need to "know thyself", warts and all, and let God into all those dark, smelling, grotty corners of my soul. Before I can do that, I need to find out what they are. Hopefully the finding out of the next bit will be less nasty for other people....
