Life’s Great Mysteries

There are many mysteries in life. Most people consider the “Lost sock conundrum” to be among the greatest. But I don’t think it is. From the perspective of the pastor’s study, the one that I can’t figure out is this:

I own 8 clerical shirts: Four long sleeved (for winter) and four short (for summer). So why is it that this morning (temperature on the way up to 80 degrees) I counted 7 long sleeved, and only one short sleeved? And why is that this past January (temperature on the way up to 0 degrees) I counted and the numbers were reversed?


That’s the great mystery of life I’m pondering this morning as I head out to do shut-in visits.*

*NB: The country parson is not actually pondering that as he visits his shut-ins. He will be pondering the mystery of love and mercy shown by God to his humble servant.
