Snap out of it!
Oh, where? Oh where? is your gentle spirit?
Oh, where? Oh where? did it go?
Mine has been lost for a week or so now. I noticed it was gone yesterday.
I'm sure it's around here someplace.
As Susan Schaeffer Macaulay is fond of saying,
'We live in a fallen world, and we are fallen people.'
"To sum up, let all be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit; not returning evil for evil, or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing."
1 Peter 3:8
Giving a blessing instead. I may find my gentle spirit in doing thus.
Come out, come out, wherever you are,
