Good Evening, God!
Through a series of miscommunications I had a full day at home. Knowing I had all day I was able to tackle organizing tasks that had been too overwhelming before. That is not to say they are done. They are not! But, I am getting closer. And I am enjoying the slow but mostly steady progress. So I want to share a “done” corner of my office.
The York Minster certificate shows that our daughter Patty bought me One Minute of upkeep for York Minster. That was back on August 14, 1979 when she was on an Earth Watch dig in Scotland. Sigh. Every time I look at it I wonder if I was appreciative enough. I know that I didn’t immediately pin it up! And that means whatever appreciation I had — didn’t show very well.
I cannot help but think of the General Confession that I used to say every Sunday as an Episcopalian. “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.”
And as I say that I remember that I am forgiven by You. And I need to forgive myself and not load my dear self down with energy sapping sorrows and regrets. Besides, I am hoping that Patty from her heavenly vantage point is seeing her loving gift in its proper place and smiling.
I am smiling too.
