Because I made coffee in my little coffeemaker in my comfortable house,
Because I was taking my healthy, beautiful little girl to Gymnastics class,
Because I braked suddenly when the first vehicle in a line of late-model vehicles almost missed his turn,
Because my coffee spilled in the passenger seat,
I was feeling a little pouty. I thought, "I want a car with a cupholder that works!"
But then I remembered, and wondered ---
How much coffee spilled in Haiti the day of the earthquake?
So teach us to number our days,
That we may present to You a heart of wisdom.Psalm 90:12
