Last week, I was late every day to both jobs. Not crazy late, but 5 minutes or so to the coffee shop. One morning, a half hour late to the church job. This is very unlike me, and if you ask my husband I like to be on time anywhere we go. It was my own fault, staying up past my bedtime doing, I cant even remember what now (so it must have been very important). This week, I vowed to myself to go to bed by my bedtime and be on time, if not early to work. Other than last week clearly catching up with me, in which I called in sick Wednesday morning to the coffee shop, I was on time if not early. Funny how proud of myself I am for being, you know, an adult. There’s quote I have up in my office that reminded me of these past two weeks, what its really all about:

“This Hebrew evening/morning sequence conditions us to the rhythms of grace. We go to sleep, and God begins His work. As we sleep He develops His covenant. We wake and are called to participate in God’s creative action. We respond in faith, in work. But always grace is previous. Grace is primary. We wake into a world we didn’t make, into salvation we didn’t earn. Evening: God begins, without our help, His creative day. Morning: God calls us to enjoy and share and develop the work He initiated. Creation and covenant are sheer grace and there to greet us every morning.” Eugene Peterson
