Unpredictable Day

17 Jan

Today will offer a menu of the mundane

and the marvelous. I will peruse the

possibilities without license to choose.

Life will determine the day’s agenda,

not my calendar. The unexpected phone

call, a surprise knock on the door, emails

and texts and tweets set in motion the

acrobatics of juggling alternatives. Cracks

in the day swallow what seemed important,

even urgent.

As the day unfolds, may I not lose sight

of the Source that gives me the courage

to cope and to continue. At the end of the day,

may I look back on moments that challenged

my values, tested my concern for others, and

offered me opportunities to speak truth to

deception or deceit. May I count the unforeseen

moments as valuable nourishment for the growth

of my soul.
