The Calendar Box

January 6, 2005Today is boxed
One rectangle of time
Empty, unplanned.
Oh, there are plans—
But I don’t control how events play themselves out.
People, doorbell, phone, emails, events, needs—
They all factor in to how this day gets written.
Don’t take it for granted.
Stop time, look, notice, feel and embrace the universe.
Cloak myself in His Spirit.
At the end of this day, God will write in His journal: I did good today.
Did I cooperate with His plan?
Did I write outside the lines?
