I Was So Ready

For one brief moment last night, I was ready. I made my peace and sat with expectant surrender. But it didn't happen.

I had taught a Bible class last night, so it would have been good timing. I was all prayed up, too. All my kids are secure (I'm pretty sure), and I was in the proper frame of mind.

But it didn't happen.

It occurred to me that Jesus might not want the Red Sox to win a World Series. In fact, I actually thought it would be just like him to show up in the bottom of the ninth and say, "Hey, guys. Game over, okay? Come on home now."

But it didn't happen.
