A Package in the Mail....

My wife arrives home from the post office. She carries a box- about the right size. It was shipped from St. Louis from Concordia Publishing House. Surely this is it! Surely this is the long awaited Treasury of Daily Prayer! I take the package. It feels about the right weight. I carefully cut through the packing tape. I get the glimpse of the maroon coloured book inside. "This is it!" I declare to all around. I remove the packing paper. Lectionary: Series B.

Still waiting up in Canada for my TDP.

P.S.
Next year I order the One Year Series.

Mike,
It's like a mirror into my own soul ... complete with dummy Lectionary B packages and all. I know how you feel. Stand fast ... it will come ... eventually ...

Tom Petty says it all.

Part of it is I am looking forward to the resource. Another part of it is that I want it for my daily Matins Services - because now I am having to dig around a bunch of sources to get what I need each morning.

I didn't get mine yet. I am starting to get a comlpex. Is there some conspiracy? Perhaps soem Satanic mailroom misdeed? How long, O Lord? How long?
