Praying for rain
Where in the world has Jo gone? SO sorry for the absence from
the blogosphere couch... it's been time to work on two books. One: the
dissertation (chapter 3 just hit 90 pages!! woohoo!). Two:...
- GOD DEFINITELY DRIVES A FAST CAR -
several prayers for Lent
in the modern vernacular
DEFINITELY A ROMERO WITH FLAME DECALS
Sometimes God is my friend with the really fast car.
He picks me up on weekends and we go cruising.
As blocks pass by I think how long it would've taken me
to go this far by walk or bike.
As we pass 80, I'm glad you're driving
I wonder if this can be safe.
Pigeons and stray dogs leap out of our way.
I pull on my shades and consider that
I shall never be able to afford this myself.
People stare at me like I'm a movie star.
They're wondering if I am.
We find a quiet cafe a small town,
where busy people like me never go.
You know the waitress's name.
I feel as if I'm the one who's popular
You drop me off at home, where I don't have to
I wave goodbye, and hope
you'll be back again.
I wouldn't know what to do with a car myself.
Lord it is sweet to have friends.
