Psalm 139 revisited by a goof-ass
Psalm 139: Verse 13: You created my inmost self, knit me together in my mother's womb.
Several years ago, maybe 8 or so, I entered the Jesuit Center in Wernersville for my first 8 day retreat and was met with a note suggesting I read Psalm 139. Verse 13 would bring out tears waiting over 30 years to emerge and I ranted at God for dropping a stitch when he created my urethra.
As this year's retreat neared an end, I told the director who I love, that I wanted to revisit the psalm. and she said, "Yes, why not thank God for creating you as a goof-ass."
and thus I knew she had been listening to me earlier in the week.
so I did.
