And, And, Ampersand
The Ampersand, “&,” symbolizing and, serves to connect our thoughts, our communication, our language—and spills over as an integral part of our culture.
Metaphorically, all those ands add up. Take the “To Do” lists we make for ourselves. You know how long those lists can be! I number mine (you might do the same). Between each item is the connecting “and” between each. If long, the list can hardly seem doable.
My list is typically lengthy. It’s one thing to put down the necessary things; however, I often find myself adding on extra items due to my own insecurities or wants. It becomes a “Me List” instead of one that is Spiritually led.
Jesus probably had his own “To-Do” list, but I’m certain his actions were related to following the Will of His Father in Heaven—not due to his own wants or needs.
I've decided that I'd like to pray each morning about the things I add to my list, so it will not be a “Me List,” but instead a “We List”—one that the Lord helps me with. Then, maybe those “and’s” will be the things that will be the most beneficial ones—and that will also serve others.
My prayer is that you, too, may find your “To-Do” list to be a manageable one—with God’s help!
