Somerset, NJ: Bless the Lord in a Strip Shopping Mall

One of my wonderful parish priests gigged me about my morning tweet, which was this:

"Parking lots and strip malls bless the Lord? LOL! " he tweeted back. 

I admit it's odd and whimsical to juxtapose a morning prayer with a shot from our family van of the parking lot where I prayed as I sipped my Dunkin' Donuts latte light before I headed north onto an interstate toward my teaching job. 

The thing is, as I tweeted back to my priest, I liked the way Beauty in the form of a magnificent predawn sky imposed itself upon a quotidien New Jersey scene. And so yes, Father Jeff, Bless the Lord from a parking lot. 

“Sometimes I need
only to stand
wherever I am 
to be blessed.”
