Dear God,

Slowly, I work through my to-do list.

Scratch. A phone call made.

Scratch. An email sent.

Scratch. A plan adjusted, consulted, readjusted.

Pause for texting. Pause to pee.

Scratch. Another call.

Help me to see where you are in these things. Surround me with your Spirit and stir a sense of joy and fulfillment in me at the slow completion of the mundane. Lift my soul at things done and left undone and, in your mercy, grant me peace.
