This the day you have made –
A Monday,
A day of full inboxes
And frantic bosses
And car repairs we cannot
Afford, regardless of cost.
A day with a child’s fever
And sales goals
And trusting you daily.
A day of projects rushed
And turned into teacher.
A day of prayer for mercy
And simple graces.
A day to rejoice in.
A day he has made.
And I’ll be glad in it.

(At least I’ll try.)
