For years my husband has been asking me to please share more of the stories regarding the things that have happened on the journey. In addition to that – my 20 year old son recently said “Mom, you should really start a blog.” It is something that I had thought about for quite awhile – and – today is the day.

I was prompted after having an experience this afternoon of praying for someone and in the midst of praying – began questioning a little bit about “How will I be in regards to the scenario coming up and/or how will the person with whom is going through the situation be doing?” The phone rang and I answered. The woman on the other end of the phone said “Hi, I am calling because it looks like according to our records your vehicle may need maintenance.” Realizing that my son does almost all of the repairs or has coworkers who do them because he is in the automotive mechanics program while also being employed at a place where they can do all of the work – I said “I think you may have the wrong number.” I also recognized that the type of vehicle she mentioned was not one that we owned. When I mentioned that to her she said “Oh, I am sorry – I was looking for Faith.” My reply to her was “I have faith – however – I don’t think you have the right number. I could sense that she was smiling on the other end of the phone by the sweet tone in her voice and her pleasant reply. And, we hung up – peacefully.

It got me thinking, though. “Do I have Faith?” And, if I do … who or what am I putting my faith in? Is it being put in the world? Is it being put in something of this world? OR – is being put in the One Who Is the Giver of All Good Gifts? Something extremely important to think about on this journey …

Jesus, I trust in You +

Jesus, I surrender myself to You – take care of everything +
