where there's a will there's a way. and where there's a persistent black lab, there's a will. this one is too old to jump up onto my lap, and too big to fit, but she can't give up the desire to be pressed up against, like the puppy she maybe remembers being. so she noses her way beneath my knees, craning her neck to lay her head in my lap. 'there,' she says, 'that'll do.' is there a #will out there in the world so strong, so inexorable, pulling me to find any way to wedge my life into whatever bent knees and too-high laps fate throws at me? waiting for me to follow, to relax into saying 'there, that'll do'? I want to seek meaning with that kind of, well, doggedness. #sweetmaggie #rethinklent #rethinklent2017 #rethinkchurch .
