â€œThere is no time, no place, no event
so earthly that God cannot be there,
speaking through them.
where earth is crammed
with heaven. . .
will go unnoticed|
unless we realize the meek
and the unassuming way that|
God characteristically comes.â€

Â With this quote the liturgistÂ opens up our â€œtime of silenceâ€ this morning.Â
Â And IÂ canâ€™t help but think that having Total Knee Replacement surgery tomorrow morning at 8:00 AM is right up there with being â€œearthly.â€Â
Â And I want to pay attention to hear what God will speak during these next days/weeks of rehab and recovery.Â
Â Itâ€™s been easy to think this is just something to grit my teeth and get through (the gritting of the teeth is probably more real than I can imagine right now!) so I can get to the other side of this and â€œmove onâ€ with my life.Â
Â And today the preacher reminds us God speaks into our ordinary lives in extra-ordinaryÂ ways and we will hear if we listen.Â
Â Pray with me that I will be able to hear.
