And now, O man, remember, and perish not.

Sin in thoughts, words, and deeds. The strength of this scripture stands out that I am, cut and dry, responsible for what I think about speak about and do about. And I am required to watch these things.

It was written in the Miracle of Forgiveness about the words we think being recorded. I am reminded that it is so important to let virtue garnish my thoughts unceasingly.

I know that I have a harms list even from yesterday. The task is heavy. It has to become a 'habit' of thought because I know that the words and actions fall into place if my thoughts alligned.
