Pastor’s Pondering – November 22, 2017

Even on a good day

Some tasks may remain incomplete,

Some accomplishments unsatisfying,

Some memories annoying-

And for these, a purring cat-on-the-lap

Is a healing balm.


And if the world

Is circling around the drain-

If chaos laps at the door

And the back door

Has taken leave-

If the roof leaks

And the bucket too-

There is still room for a second cat

To take comfort in your lap-

Still room for you to receive the mercy

That heaven sends

To those who grip faithfully

To their thread.
