…than when you are all alone in the office…working late. All of the sudden, it hits you. The combination of a new diet and just plan bad luck cause you to have a bathroom emergency. You walk briskly to the bathroom, which seems like 8 miles away, hoping that no one miraculously appears and wants to start up a conversation. Phew…you made it into the bathroom. You seat yourself on the royal throne as the emergency begins it’s exit. You glance up and a look of horror appears on your face…there is no toilet paper. You begin to panic…but calm yourself…you must think. You finish your business…doing a little dance hoping nothing sticks. You listen for about five minutes…making absolutely sure that no one is coming. Then you stand up…not all the way, unlock the door, peek out, and then make a mad dash for the next stall. As you waddle, you pray to God that no one will walk in on your during what is probably one of your most undignified moments. You have made it…you are in the clear. You clean yourself and the deed is done.
“The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
…it’s that kind of show you just flip on while you are cutting out letters for your project. Next thing you know…you look up and three hours have just slipped on by. Yet, you still can’t move yourself to look away. The worst part of it is…you’ve already seen the season.
