Ordinary People Who Know Things

Clemie and I were sitting together in our prayer group, and I was complaining that I didn't understand why more people don't pray. I guess I was a bit frustrated. Clemie paused, looked off in that casual blue-eyed way she has, and said in a soft voice, "You know, God's had some experience with this..."

Which reminded me that if I'm going to take on all the failings of humankind, I should at least consider God's approach. Infinite patience, everlasting love, and certainty that ultimately, regarding the pray-ers and the doubters and everyone in between, all will be well.
