Up early and shaving. Rehearsing in the mind just how to play it. This had the promise of a very big day, and I so wanted things to turn out well.
New blade in the razor. “Watch it Son, you don’t want to go into that meeting looking like a self-offering”. Chuckled to myself.
Thought of my prayers half an hour prior. Standing there. Just standing, looking at the face in the mirror.
A confident, comforting Voice registers in the sub-conscious:
“You do your part as I have prepared you. I will do the rest. You know that this is how this thing works. And my part is BY FAR the greater one. I’ve got you covered Son.”
