Lazy Saturday

Resting and reading
Surrendering to the day that came
Waking with disappointment
Sometimes plans fail

The day continues in study
Tasks fall away from the list
The morning turns into evening
The heart is ready for the next day

A day of worship, a day of learning
Listening to hear if God speaks
Studying and sorting knowledge
Listening to hear if God spoke

A day of questioning
Listening to the wisdom of the past
Hearing older voices speaking
Questioning which voices speak wisely

The sun sets yet the reading is unfinished
The sage spoke truth: Much study wearies the flesh.
