It’s an hour past
the first chirp of my alarm and
I’m still hiding under my covers.
I don’t want to face the day.
I don’t want to hear Jillian Michaels bark at me from the DVD
because I’m bloated from a late night Mexican food binge.
I dread the looming project deadline and
piles of laundry and
sink full of dirty dishes.
I don’t want to face today because
I have too much to manage and not enough …
patience for a tough conference call later today.
energy to attack my endless to do list.
money for this month’s bills.
So I hide under my covers and keep hitting the snooze button
as I beg God to
stretch my time and money …
to be my God today.
Do you do that?
