If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice.
The day started very early. Before the sun was up, we headed to the airport to send off our Johnnie on a bit of an adventure. It was an easy drive despite the snow, only wet pavement with a salty road spray.
Around every turn was another vista of frosted trees and shrubs. In a magical, quiet way, the overnight snowfall sculpted the highway into something softer, a more ethereal version of an interstate.
On the way back into our neighborhood, I took a few pictures. Then a few more around our back yard. And all I could do was say, “Thank you, Lord.”
It was a long day. Lots of little issues, big problems, and heartfelt prayers. A hard day. But a good day. Let the day end as it began… where all I can say is, “Thank you, Lord.”
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. I Thessalonians 5:15-18
