Forgiveness and Forgetting the Headache

The man

Last week, a man woke up with a terrible headache. He went to work hoping it would go away. It didn’t. In the early afternoon, he stopped what he was doing and went to find the quietest place possible in the warehouse where he worked. He sat down and slowly said the Lord’s Prayer.

For quite a while, at least 10 minutes he contemplated the Lord’s Prayer and its impact on thought and action. He felt much calmer.

He went back to work. And, made one more attempt to locate an item in the warehouse that was eluding him in the morning. While searching, it occurred to him he made a mistake earlier that caused him not to see the item. He found the item. A few minutes later, he noticed his headache was completely gone.
