Danny's Letters to God

Dear God,

"Setup time" is here. Thoughts of "who would know" are running around in my head. Old tapes long since hidden in the back room of my brain have become new releases. "Who would know" is my long time companion and would have taken over by now except for some well spent spiritual recovery that I have been keeping for just a day as this. There was a time when I was unable to even recognize these thoughts, but now it is second nature to bring them to You for disposal.

The woman You sent to run my life is, as we speak, on her way to the wilds of Pennsylvania to visit her sister and him. She is taking Aunt Mae with her, and I put them in Your care, as well as my car. Alone to do as I please? Hardly. I will leave shortly for Brooklyn to do some banking, as the youngest of the children needs some cash (this one actually pays it back), and the weekend is full of f2f meetings.

Stay with me this day, show me the way, and give me the power to do Your will as it is revealed to me. Wrap all those I love in Your arms, give abstinence to all who need it, and remember to watch over those I would like to see suffer. They more than all others need Your help. The clock strikes eight and I must get going, but before I go please reach out to those who ask me for help that I can not help. Only You can make them whole.

And Why Not?
