i don't even know if i agree with that, but in my exhaustion it made
sense. if someone is not important enough to recall them in my

my point is that i am going to be more purposeful in my visiting
and praying . . . and promise of praying. then i won't feel guilty
at night for perhaps forgetting someone. i will just be convicted
of all the other terrible things i do!
"let my prayer be set forth as incense before You, the lifting up
