There have been many times
when I would be frantic looking
for something I have lost or misplaced
only to find it sitting right there before me.
I seek Christ in wind and thunder
only to encounter him in my silence and solitude.
I want to serve him in some heroic and epic manner
only to realize my calling right now is to do small and humble things
for others in his name.
I pray for the serenity and equanimity
to see his face in the hustle and bustle of daily living.
