This past week the local paper had an error in one of the front page headlines. The error caused the headline to pretty much not make any sense at all. It was a glaring error. As soon as I saw it I wondered, a bit sarcastically mind you, if the paper had an editor. Of course they do but as we all know to error is human.

I did start to think though how nice it would be if our life came with an editor. Someone to tell us, "Oh you shouldn't do that. It's not going to turn out well." or "If you phrase it like that your spouse will understand better."

We all tend to over use the words I'm sorry. That phrase lets the people in our life know we didn't mean to do or say whatever has wronged them, however it doesn't take away the pain or fix the situation. Maybe if we all came with an editor from birth we wouldn't have to say we were sorry in the first place.

"To err is human, to forgive, divine." Maybe our "editor" isn't as far away as we may think. It's just that we're not very good at listening to Him. Just a thought...

Rosey, I like that thought!
