I’ve been everywhere since then March 30, 2013

So much to share, so many miles, so many revelations to share sooner rather than later, but not today.  

Holy Saturday reminds me of old-fashioned South Texas funeralizing, preparing the house and the table to receive mourners, making sure that there will be enough chairs for seating, quietly relating stories of the beloved or the deceased, who may of may not be one and the same.  These preparations are readily apparent to the Clergy and the Altar Guild and the close ones who gather somberly to wait.  It is an important part of the waiting we are called to live into together.  

But waiting, no matter how holy or blessed, is time between, not fully lived unless I wait upon the Lord.

Mardi Gras morning in this dreary rain, I had an urgent call from my best friend in Corpus Christi. We usually talk every week, and I surprised to hear from her so soon after a long talk on Friday. The news that could not wait? A typo from St. John’s Methodist Church email:

The men of the church were hosting their Shove Tuesday Pancake Supper.

Her wag of a husband fired back an email that Shove Tuesday would be followed by Fall on your Ash Wednesday.
