A New Day: My To Do List and God’s

Dawn through a filter on 12/12/10

Good Morning, God!

A NEW DAY! Hurrah! Of course,there are THINGS STILL UNDONE piled on my desk. Gosh, things I “thought” I had done are popping up. Ah yes. A new day. But, today Suzanne arrives and I rejoice! Thank You, God!

Actually, I think part of my feeling so good is that SOME things have gotten done. I found my “lost” basket. Picked up the loan of a “classic nook” and delivered my “book bill” one day early. And I now feel as if I only have 48 things TO DO.

I remember when it came to me, God, that I didn’t really have an infinite number of things to do. I probably only had 50 things to do! ONLY 50 — a manageable number. Mind You, God, more things come IN to add to my list. But, still, when I look “inside” for the number — it is only 48. Smile. Progress!

Now I am off to shower, dress, and drive off to prayer and work for a few hours. The “work” is part of my “meaningful participation” in the world. I love it. I love having “Things to DO.” Now, I hear a small word — it isn’t the DOING that matters. What MATTERS is all the small interactions with the people I meet and cross paths with.

Hmmm. As I cross things off My LIST, God, help me remember that YOUR WORK is in my hearing and seeing and affirming the people around me — not the stuff on my list.
