Did you ever have a time of prayer where, after you had said AMEN you were like, “Oh wait, God, I forgot to thank you for our staff!” and then you do like a prayer addendum?
And I just think that’s hilarious because of course God doesn’t need me to list out stuff like that, but that’s just me being human. When I think of the enormous chasm — the unspeakably immense difference between God’s understanding and knowledge and my own, it’s sort of too much to handle. One might go right into an existential crisis and not be able to get to the office at all.
So I make my prayer addendums and I know that really God is intimately acquainted with my every thought and that God knows my prayers as part of my being before they are imagined or uttered.
But this makes me think, “Humans are cute.”
Darlings, I am off to the chiropractor. I was up until 1:30 AM finishing my dissertation. Of course it needs to be approved and possibly amended, edited, etc., but at least I’m moving onto a new part of the process and that feels pretty miraculous to me today.
Someday I’ll write about how working on a dissertation is a lot like carrying on a really deep, important conversation with a coffee pot.
Much love to you today. It’s very bleak here today, I’m wearing grey and black and doing absolutely nothing to contribute some sunshine and color. Perhaps later in the day I’ll add a bright raspberry pink beret to my outfit in celebration.
