"Give Us This Day" Tuesday Theology

A prayer for the scarce times and a theology of abundance...



“Give us this day,”
It reads.
But I’d like another one, please.
One that goes according to plan.
One that completes that to do list.
That runs on time,
And well,
Like Big Ben or
The Stock Market…

Never mind.
I want a perfectly well-oiled machine,
Giving pace and predictability,
But punctuated by joy,
wait
Not too much joy.
That’s exhausting.
And just a tinge of sorrow
So I don’t forget.

But not a boring day,
Or a hot day, or a rainy day, or a snowy day, or cool day,
Not a too breezy day!

And certainly not a busy day!
Or lifeless day!

Oh never mind.

Give me this day after all.
With friends,
And a medium sized love,
No ice.


Amen.
