Desperate?

Yesterday afternoon, in the middle of the production that is getting our worship folders ready for Sunday - the folding machine suddenly stopped working.

I heard my name called. Next I was on the phone calling the company to see about getting a repair person out ASAP. According to Stephanie and Jennifer, it merely said, "Power Out." They tried turning it off and on and etc. Nothing. Nothing. We do almost all our printing in-house.

The person I spoke with was very polite. When she asked me what it was doing, I relayed what Stephanie and Jennifer had said and done. The tone in her voice was that of, "That's not good." When I told her we were doing one of our largest printings - she said, "Oh! You're printing for Easter!" We got disconnected.

I called back and they promised to have a repair person out at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow morning (today). The woman said she greatly appreciated us and what we do.

When I gave the news to Stephanie and Jennifer, Stephanie said, "Thanks for sounding so desperate Camey." I had to laugh at the moment..... We were desperate.. but still I did not realize that's how I sounded. Stephanie's words got me to thinking... (I know what's new there)

We can be so desperate about getting everything so ready for our Easter services that we might miss the true depth of the cross. Wanting this or that to go just right.... Or a person/family might be so desperate in finding the right clothes, the right time to feast and where and etc.... they miss it too. Whatever else this weekend might bring....

Are we desperate to truly experience the cross and Jesus and His amazing love?

Are we desperate to show and tell others about the Only One who is truly worth any fame?

Am I desperate?

Are you?
