Personal, Religious

Scrabbled Day

I tinker with my obligations
before the day begins
shuffling them like Scrabble tiles
considering their perfect placement
on my game-board of hours

plan my drives
to count both ways
combine lists for family and work
to do double duty –
like using X to make OX and AX

pray each move will be efficient
and that I finish well
like placing Q
followed by U, I, T,
emptying my tray with S
– a microcosm of Your
miraculous multiplication
of my efforts.
