It seems strange that nothing has changed.
The chair needed to be fixed. The grass needed to be mown. Bills to pay, dishes to wash, sermon to prepare, budget review to present, children to raise. Gas in the car, check the e-mail, go for a walk, take a shower, clean the gunk out of the sole of my shoe.
It all seems so normal.
Shouldn’t something change.
Maybe the herald who trumpets the differences in this new ‘post dad’ day and world is late. Did we fail to convene the conference for the Committees to Pronounce Change in this new age? Did I miss a memo? I swear, I checked my email.
Something just has to be different! It’s not possible for there to be a hole this big in my soul and everything remains the same.
Even so, it is well with my soul …
