We hope it’s been a meaningful Friday.  One of us has been listening to “Mary Russell-Sherlock Holmes” stories written by Laurie King and I stumbled upon the following, I thought I would share it with you.  Enjoy. Sherlock Holmes and Watson are on a camping trip. After a good session of singing Wonderwall around the campfire, they retire to their sleeping bags. Several hours later, Sherlock wakes up and nudges Watson awake. Watson groggily asks, “What?” “Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.” Watson thinks about this for a minute, wiping his eyes. “I see millions of stars,” Watson answers. “What does that tell you?” asks Sherlock. “Well, astronomically, it tells me there are millions of galaxies. Astrologically, I can see that Saturn is in Virgo. Theologically, I see that God is all-powerful and we are insignificant. What does it tell you, Holmes?” Sherlock remains silent for a few seconds. “It tells me that someone has stolen our tent.”

Scripture Reading: Proverbs 16:20
“Those who are attentive to a matter will prosper, and happy are those who trust in the Lord.”

Reflection Questions:
How is your faith prospering?
What helps you stay attentive to the needs of others?
Where do you see God in the world?

Prayer: Holy God, help me pay attention to others and in doing so let me prosper in the things that matter. Be happy with me as I trust you this day. Amen
