third saturday in lent

“My times are in your hand;
    deliver me from the hand of my enemies and persecutors” Psalm 31:15

when the world would knock me
over with a shopping cart to get
the last package of toilet paper,
when the angry voices holler at me
to turn my back on your future,
when people point a finger at me
and accuse me of preaching
perspective over panic,
remind me that these moments,
like all time, are measured by
your grace and hope, not
our foolish fears and worries
