I hit the snooze button up to three times. My husband asks, “Why not set it right the first time?”
We put on our sneakers for our morning walk. We ask, “How’d you sleep?” and tell tales of our dreams.
We walk several blocks. We walk, we talk.
Heading back home, we reflect on the day and stop to pray.
Jesus is our Alpha—the beginning to our day.
I get ready for work. At the sink, I pray.
As I do my hair, I read God’s word.
Jesus is my Alpha.
My husband sits, coffee in hand, Bible in lap—bowing his head.
I walk by and smile. Thank you, God.
Jesus is his Alpha.
I go to work. My husband—he works from home.
Throughout our day, Jesus is our Alpha.
As our day nears its end, we lock all the doors and climb into bed.
I open my Bible. He opens his.
We each read a chapter.
Our Jesus, Omega—our end He is.
We lay face to face and discuss what we’ve read.
We pray for the day, say, “I love you.” We kiss.
Alpha, Omega—Jesus is.
Although this year ends, another begins.
My prayer, my heart: Jesus, please stay
Our Alpha, Omega.
Amen and Amen.
