Hmmm… I’m waking up. What day is today? It takes a while but finally it comes to me. Friday. TGIF!
Brain slowly activating. What do I have to do today? Teach my class; that’s about all. Synapses starting to fire. No, you’ve got a lot more to do than that! You’ve got… Better get up.
Cup of caffeine. Don’t tell the cardiologist. One won’t hurt. Gotta grease the brain.
Today’s Halloween, isn’t it? So tonight I have to be at the front door to hand out candy. Cute kids. Don’t come late because I’ll want to go to bed.
Halloween. That means it’s also Reformation Day. Did Martin Luther trick or treat Pope Leo? Sip. What percentage of the population knows today is Reformation Day? Probably small. Only religious people like you. How many people have done time in a Seminary?
Remember when it was common to say, “Day after tomorrow?” “Half past?” You could say, “I can do that next week” without checking your calendar. Now everything is now. Now everything instantaneous. Now everything ASAP.
“So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.” (Psalm 90:12) “I awake, and I am still with You.” (Psalm 139:18b) OK, now I’m ready for the day.
