Holy Week

Holy Week

Monday:
Dear God,
I want to offer you this day,
but this day isn't good enough.
I didn't get the laundry done
            and I burned the toast this morning,
So I'll wait and offer you another day.
        And God said, “I'll be here.”

Tuesday:
Dear God,
I want to offer you this day,
but this day isn't good enough.
I didn't get the baking done
and I yelled at the kids.
So I'll wait and offer you another day.
        And God said, “I'll be here.”

Wednesday:
Dear God,
I want to offer you this day,
but this day isn't good enough.
I broke a confidence
and betrayed a friend
So I'll wait and offer you another day.
        And God said, “I'll be here.”

Thursday:
Dear God,
I want to offer you this day,
but this day isn't good enough.
A friend asked me to be there
but I had other things to do.
So I'll wait and offer you another day.
        And God said, “I'll be here.”

Friday:
Dear God,
I want to offer you this day,
but this day isn't good enough.
Someone did me a favor
     and I never said “Thank you.”
So I'll wait and offer you another day.
     And God said, “I'll be here.”

Saturday:
Dear God,
I want to offer you this day,
but this day isn't good enough.
I've lost sight of you
     and I don't feel like talking just.
So I'll wait and offer you another day.
        And God said, “I'll be here.”

Sunday:
Dear God,
It isn't perfect
     but neither am I
So I'll give you this day
     with its smudges and streaks,
     and its bruises and bumps,
     its jelly covered doorknobs,
     and its dented fenders
     and unpaid bills,
    because it's all I have to offer.
And God said, “It's all I ever wanted.”

(We need to remember that God's love doesn't come with conditions.
     He already has perfection . . .

          what He wants is us.)
