Today’s prayer

Prayer of the Ox

Dear God, give me time.MA0313-001
Men are always so driven!
Make them understand that I can never hurry.
Give me time to eat.
Give me time to plod.
Give me time to sleep.
Give me time to think.

Taken from ‘Prayers from the Ark’ by Carmen de Gasztold. Written from the point of view of animals, her prayers / poems offer great insight about human nature.

re: the random-ness

Husband. Father. Senior Pastor of Parkview Community Church in Glen Ellyn, IL.

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
