What a perfect day…
On Wednesday I like to watch Father Brown at 3:00,
and today is all rainy and overcast…
the perfect day to accept respite without guilt.
Luke 12:35 (Lynn version)
‘be dressed and ready, and keep the home fires burning… keep the lamps lit to show that you wait and are ready’
How miserable I am!
I feel like the fruit picker after the harvest
who can find nothing to eat.
Not a cluster of grapes or a single early fig
can be found to satisfy my hunger.
2 The good man is perished out of the earth:
and there is none upright among men:
they all lie in wait for blood;
they hunt every man his brother with a net.
3 Both their hands are equally skilled at doing evil!
Officials and judges alike demand bribes.
The people with influence get what they want,
and together they scheme to twist justice.
4 Even the best of them is like a brier;
the most upright is sharper than a hedge of thorns.
But our Lord is coming
and now shall be the time of confusion.
8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise;
when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.
9 I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against him,
until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me:
he will bring me forth to the light,
and I shall behold his righteousness.
