ReflectSeparately, say the prayer and spend some time reflecting on the questions.
Write some notes and then share your answers more fully with your spouse.
You made me a good person, Father.
It is important for You to help me realize that.
When I fail, and You know that is too often,
it is because I don’t see my goodness.
In my heart of hearts, I see myself as ordinary.
That is so wrong, Father.
How could I be ordinary when I am Your son/daughter?
Jesus will tell You how I feel.
