Then -- I don't want to say "normal" because if there is one thing I'm not it is "normal." I know I'm crazy but even crazy has what starts out to be a "regular" day. You know the kind -- get up, have coffee, clear email and actually start into the schedule you think is going to happen that day. Then the phone rings, someone is at the door, there is an email -- something that changes not just the schedule but where you thought you were going/doing.
Scripture refers to unexpected guests as angels/messengers and reminds us to show hospitality. You may notice that each of these "messengers" started great change -- three men visiting Abraham, an angel talking to Mary, a bush burning. Change can come with great excitement and expectation. Change can come very unexpectedly and not exactly wanted. Scripture also reminds us that God IS with us through each, and all, of the changes these messengers (phone call, email, letter, doctor's appointment) bring.
A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Pentecost -- the coming of the Holy Spirit. Jesus referred to the Holy Spirit as the Comforter. Paul tells us, in Ephesians, that we are filled with the Holy Spirit -- the Comforter/Guide.
Looking at the changes that happen, to "regular" days, that change our lives with this perspective helps us to feel God's peace. Maybe we can even change our attitude enough to "dance," with God through the changes. Something to think about!
