Today I got up very early for an early Zoom meeting. And I immediately faced a problem. Surprisingly, it had nothing to do with getting up early, although our puppy Bitsy who was snuggled by my side was not particularly happy. Rather, I couldn’t find my glasses that I always put on the bedside table – except last night, evidently. I looked everywhere I often find them when ‘they hide themselves from me’, but to no avail. So I have been looking at a world this morning that literally is out of focus. Starting the day without spending time with God in prayer, scripture reading and reflection is like trying to see without glasses. Everything’s out of focus. But when you start with God, it’s amazing how God gives you 20/20 eyesight and you see exactly what God knows you need to see!
