Sigh …

May 24, 2022

I have one last item on my checklist to tend to so that ‘life’ that got in the way yesterday is finally marked off. Then I can go back to what I really want to do, which is to be here looking at the New Testament reading from the day’s Morning Prayer. God always comes first but sometimes we have to render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s.

Even as I’m writing this, in the back of my mind is that last item that I can’t get to til normal operating hours have begun but I can’t seem to concentrate even on this little chat with you because I’m formulating and noting questions I must ask, arrangements I may have to make …

We walk in two worlds, we Christians – the material and the spiritual. Occasionally, the material foot becomes heavier and the spiritual foot is floating around like a helium balloon but it’s our duty to get that situation balanced out. I would prefer for the material foot to be floating around but – life.

I know God understands; nothing interferes with Morning Prayer because it’s the very first thing I do upon waking. Then I think of that line in the General Confession that states, “We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health in us.” So … I guess I just have to toddle off the way I am. I can’t help but remember that Monty Python skit – the one about the Ministry of Silly Walks. That’s me right now, floating foot included.

  1. You can count me in on that. The things I ought not to have done figure prominently in my life despite my best intentions. Some of them seem pretty trivial but that doesn’t mean I can ignore them.

    1. It’s important to remember those things but don’t make them a millstone. Jesus forgave us and now, we do the best we can to not do those things again. By His good grace.

  2. I’m not familiar with the Monty Python skit, but I certainly understand the part about life getting in the way of our prayer time.
