I woke up early. In truth I usually do. And if you read my post, I do what?
I am not going to answer that because my true friends will know what it is. So since I moved in with Lady., I really am responsible for myself. There is no mother that keeps coming in my room disturbing me, no voices non- directly reminding me that I have important duties to tend to; it’s all me.
I got up at 8am and didn’t really get up until 10am, ahem, well 10…something, when I knew I had to catch to buses to be at a doctor’s appointment at 1pm. I know you are tired of me singing the same old song and so am I. I am glad they still saw me because I am a new patient.
I saw the gastroenterologist and asked me him if they could take out my colon.
“You want a colostomy bag?” He said it like a parent would when know you would prefer something else even if you don’t. I said know a new colon would be nice.
Well they only remove colons under very serious circumstances and my IBS wasn’t very serious. He gave some liquid I should take as needed to help me out.
I went to the library to get some work done and forgot on Fridays they close at 5:30. So when I left in my cute – but – not really – warm sweater and thin leggings, I wasn’t prepared to wait outside my church in the wind and cold. Dance practice hadn’t started yet so the church was not open.
‘Hey I’m at church and I’m cold,’ I texted two of my dance members. I did a brisk walk to 7/11 in the hopes they didn’t kick me out. I stood in there for a couple of minutes and pretended I couldn’t decide what to get before I was picked up.
After dance was choir rehearsal and “Ride on King Jesus” was our practiced selection. Ending rehearsal we said our pastor prayed a departing prayer and as Nettie and knitted our hands together I couldn’t help but feel this is what it is really about,
We were on one accord and of one mine – the thought to go home. =-P But seriously in that moment I felt a family and a camaraderie that God calls for when he commands that all of His children be of one accord. It was garnished with discussion I had with my pastor about human nature and sin. And I just feel like it was a perfect way to end an evening. And maybe, just maybe I got a glimpse into the what the kingdom looks like.
