Silent Request Given

Ever have just one of those days when morning came and the first thought that entered the mind was, "I just don't want to go to work today."  We may love our job and the people we work beside, but occasionally we just want a day off from the routine of life.

Today was one of those days for me, but I only had to work a half day anyway.  So going to work would be no big deal, because I knew my afternoon would be free.  I could have called in to use some personal time for the morning off, but I didn't have a valid cause to do it.

So, I got ready and headed for work.  I fortunately made it over the draw bridge before the lights and sirens sounded the coming of a barge.  A minute later and I would have had to call to let my boss know I was stuck on the bridge and would be late.  I'm relieved every morning when I get past that point,  because it's smooth sailing the rest of the way.

Listening to my worship music and talking with the Lord, I suddenly feel an odd bump in the road.  Now, I must relate this tidbit with my next part of my story, because it just makes it more fun to read.  I'm pretty sure I had been nursing this particular front tire for over a month now.  My dear sweet adorable and wonderful husband assured me all would be fine, and I believed him.

As I pulled to the side of the road and got out of the car, I knew what I would see.  Yes!  Yes! Yes! I jumped back in the car and immediately called my boss. Thank you Lord for providing me with a reason to take my morning off from work!  Now please don't get me wrong.  I absolutely love my job.  The Lord truly has used it to develop me, but I just wanted the day off today.  

My second call was to my loving hubby who came to my rescue.  He put the spare on, and we drove to the local car dealership where we got immediate service.  While they replaced the tire my hubby, daughter, and I sat in the local diner enjoying a breakfast together.  Now I can enjoy my morning taking pictures and writing.  My doggie got a bath too, and so he is all soft, fluffy, and smelling wonderful.  I bet he wishes I went to work.

I don't know about you, but I honestly think that sometimes, even though it's not a life or death kind of thing, the Lord still delights in giving us the desires of our heart.  I'm taking His answer and running with it today.  How about you?


  1. Except for the odd bump in the road it sounds like the perfect day! You enjoyed breakfast out and finally got a tire that um... your sweet adorable husband can now TRULY say will be fine!! All's well.

  2. Right on. He does delight in us, as we rest in Him...Thanks for the post. :)
