This morning I got dressed in another fabulous outfit. I know they are fabulous because my roommate tells me so each morning right after our greeting 😉. We made chit chat about the upcoming election (apparently it is not on Nov 4th the way I’m pretty sure it has always been), the game last night that we were slammed in and of course the one and only Ben-Samuel😊.
I then made my way downtown and into the little cafe across the street from my job. “Well we’ve gotta win it tonight!” I say to the Owner. He knows exactly what I’m referring to because the city is a buzz by the fact that after 50 years we have a chance at the World Series. “Yep!” He quips. “We’ve got no choice now!” Well, that’s one way of looking at it, I thought. At one point we were 3 to 1 and so close to holding the title as champions for the 2nd time this year and suddenly it slipped through our fingers. But instead of focusing on the loss the Owner and I realized we must take it in stride. We must see it as a challenge that we can–once again–overcome.
I talked with my boss this morning. I shared my fellowship is praying for him and invited him to our next meeting. He too came in the office with a fresh outlook. The business is struggling and we are at a loss as to what God is doing. All we know is today. The mercies that are given today.
And they are new mercies.
And all we can do is walk in them…
