Ice Carving

Today I witnessed a new kind of ice carving.

I was on my way to work, and there were something like 27 freeway closures due to ice, I happen to be in the middle of one. At some point I just decided that I was going to spend my time in the car, praying for those I love. I have a mighty long prayer list… And so I just prayed for those who came to mind. It was a very good use of my time.

It was one of the longest commutes I’ve had this year, but it seemed like it went by in a minute.

I felt like God carved that time out just to spend with me. Maybe you’re rolling your eyes right now, but I believe it to be true. I believe that prayer is essential to our walk with God, and peace for others.

Its just another one of those things that is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent AND praiseworthy.

Psalm 144:12 Then our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace

I love the way God meets us where we are and 'carves out' time with us, even when we seem too busy for Him. So enjoyed reading this Margie!

Many hugs..........
