Day 26: blind to the calendar?

4 04 2011

(note: I wrote most of this post last night, Sunday night...) After this morning’s sermon, about the man-born-blind and Jesus, I’m trying to think about where I might be blind to various things in my life. The first thing that popped in my head is my calendar. But that’s a bit strange, because it’s not that I’m blind, per say. My eyes are wide open to the fact that I think I am busy, that we live in a busy culture, and that “busy” is also a relative term. I overload my calendar, I wake up most mornings ready to conquer my to-do list, even though it’s a cummulation of the past three months’ lists… yeah.. enough said.

So I don’t feel blind. But I am in need of God’s wisdom and guidance, to re-evaluate my time, to-do lists, and priorities. And I need God’s grace and forgiveness–for myself and others, when I and others don’t accomplish what I hope we will.

Help me, God, to be mindful of your presence in my hours, even when I accomplish little. Thank you for the gift of this day, and for the days to come. Amen.
