Ponder: You know that moment when you finally have gotten the warm hat strapped on your child, and the boots and the socks, the snow pants and the mittens and the coat? And then he cries plaintively, "I have to go to the bathroom!"?
Pray: Jesus called you Abba, or Daddy. And I know that as my Divine Parent you know that feeling too—of thinking you've finally gotten me ready to go out into the world, only to hear my doubts, "I'm just not ready yet." Thank you for your divine patience. And please teach me a little of it, too. Amen.
