Another Day in the Mission

 

Another Day in the Mission

Awakened,
Sort of
Alarm induced,
And
Still heavy from sleep
That rests in the body.
Bright sun and cool air
Surround you
And birdsong announces
The activity has begun
As you walk.
Faithful gather in the Church
To hear the Word,
And to receive the Body of Christ
They are called to be.
Others remain afterward,
Bearing their souls to a merciful God.
A visit
Finds a door with no answer.
Then a grocery shop
Opens doors to ladies from the village
Full of chatter about which apples.
And spied,
Further up,
A young family,
The children’s faces
Full of welcome recognition.
A lunch invitation is issued
And so it will be.
Afternoon means
Getting some words together
And travel in the car,
A pleasant past time
In beautiful creation
To the sound of recorded (mp3)
Irish yarns.
Later,
A lovely meal
Is had in a local pub,
Thai sauces opening the palate.
A young family,
Glamorous by wearing their warmth,
Glows with life around the table.
Simple pleasures.
We are grateful.
