morning offering

Sunday, October 23, 2005

"Hey, you, wake up!"
"Huh? What?"
"You're late."
"Late? For what?"
"You're late for work."

Ever had that happen? Forget that you had to go to work? It happened to me once even though I'd been at the same job for years. It still amazes me to this day that it happened.

Years ago, before I became Catholic, I'd try to rouse myself out of bed with a mental "YOU TOO can get out of bed!!!"

Nowadays, I may start off thanksgiving several times before I am conscious long enough to start AND finish the thanksgiving. Then that is followed by a rather lame morning offering.

Help me out folks. Please suggest a relatively short (remember, I'm less than half awake) morning offering that I might be able to embrace.

...falsehood is nothing except the existence in thought of what does not exist in fact. --St. Augustine of Hippo, Confessions
