Here’s a soggy Sunday prayer,
a sleepy little prayer to say…
I know I’ve been a little scattered of late.
Have you ever felt that way God?
Like your thoughts are a little bit jumble?
And your motivation is a little bit lacking?
And your enthusiasm is a little bit wet?
What do you do God, on soggy Sundays?
Do you nap, or snuggle a pet
Or find a way to affirm that leaves with drips of water can still be beautiful?
Here’s a prayer for all of us who aren’t giving a hundred percent,
but are still, somehow here,
talking to you God.
I’m glad your here to talk to,
and that I am too.
I give thanks for the opportunity to be, just as I am,
and to try not to push. Help me not to push I pray.

When she is not dreaming up projects and ideas, some of which creep into the church, she plays with her three boys-boys or goes and visits her husband at the library, while he works, to read.
