View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Double Blessings

My wife had gotten a mammogram a couple of weeks back. The results were inconclusive, so the doctor's office suggested she come in for a reexamination.

Naturally, she was upset and worried.

This morning she went back: Everything is fine.

Phew. Thank you Lord.

Then the mail came. I got a package from the Haiku Society of America containing the 2009 members' anthology, A Travel-Worn Satchel. The anthology has a theme of "geography of place or haiku of place." Somehow, one of mine got in.

On page 89:

a break in the clouds
gave way to sunrise -

(Yes, that's one of the poems I posted on August 9 to remember Nagasaki and Hiroshima.)
