Things didn’t go as planned today and I didn’t get everything done. The bulletin is a mess, the website’s not updated, and don’t even get me started on what happened to the annual report.

Still You are there. Doing awesome things. Loving me.

That woman called again, the one who always calls and always has another need, another story, another financial emergency. I gave her another phone number.

Still You are there. Doing awesome things. Loving me.

I ate way too many cheese balls at lunch today.

Still You are there. Doing awesome things. Loving me.

Saw a man getting arrested on the side of the street as I drove home. Pulled over to watch, with my phone out ready to film. Because I was scared of what might happen.

Still You are there. Doing awesome things. Loving us.

The kid and I did some dancing. We didn’t have all the right moves, but we had a whole lot of laughs. We needed that. You know how we needed that.

Still You are there. Doing awesome things. Loving me.

While walking the dog, I stopped to talk to two men sitting on some other church’s steps. They were homeless, drunk, and sad. I listened and chatted for a bit, but then moved on. I couldn’t fix them. And I had more stuff still to do.

Still You are there. Doing awesome things. Loving me.

There’s a pile of dishes, a pile of laundry, and several piles of dust waiting for me in this house, but I’m gonna lay down. To take a moment. To talk to you. To complain a bit. To confess a bit. To beg a bit. And to give you praise.

For still You are there. Doing awesome things. Loving me.

Thanks be to You.
Amen.
