On our recent road trip, I did a lot of praying. There was no way I could talk to Mr. H since we don't have bike-to-bike communication yet, so I talked to God.
Before we started out, I prayed for general safety. I really didn't know specifically what I needed. On the road, I began to see those specifics.
Thank you, Lord, for the trees on the side of the road that are keeping us in the shade.
And for the light being green, so I didn't have to stop on that incline.
And for that nice man at the top of Alabama who asked if we needed any help (and for giving me a husband who was already all the help I needed!)
And for letting us see the rain start while we were on a very straight stretch of road with a very wide bridge, just right for pulling over and putting on rain gear.
And for letting that rain be in the morning before it would have made the day unbearably steamy.
I don't remember everything that I prayed about, but all were thanksgiving prayers. I read something this week asking what would you do if all you had was what you had thanked God for today. That really is something to think about.
