The alarm just rang. Everything is unknown.
Who will be in my world today?
What conversations will I have?
What things need to be said?
What things are better left unsaid?
This is the beginning of mission.
Will I recognize a need if it passes by me?
Will I hear a question someone asks?
Will I even notice a listener?
Will I be ready to take a seeker by the hand?
It begins simply. In very small steps.
Conversations. Questions. Smiles.
Listening. Understanding. Comments. Sharing. Answers.
Don't turn off my alarm today, Lord. Keep me awake all day. --KL
