Kindle under arm and determined mindset in hand; I make my way to the van…another day on the stone.

Once in my ride, a local news affiliate shares a positive weather and traffic report, and then proceeds to offer headlines worthy of their reporting.

Florida homeowner succeeds in his effort to have homeless man removed from street corner. Claims he was an eye sore to his community.

Guess this makes good sense… can’t take any chances with our property values, now can we?

Mayor strikes pension deal with local fire and law enforcement departments. Benefit reductions will only affect future employees.

thinking…

Then Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “The word of the Lord which you have spoken is good, for there will be peace and truth in my days (Isaiah 39:8).”

I wonder what the future Israelites living in slavery to Babylon thought of Hezekiah.

The activity on the road catches my attention away from the radio. A school bus driver is attempting to get into the left lane, but no one will yield their entitlement of the asphalt. The bus finally comes to a stop in the right lane with the driver obviously pleading for some compassion.

I’m behind the bus. There’s just enough room for my smaller van to squeeze into the left lane between a Lexus and Silverado. It is decision time…

Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves (Philippians 2:3, NLT).

    Wonderfully honest stream-of-consciousness to which I totally relate. The driver’s seat seems to be a place where the proverbial rubber of the Christian life often hits the road:).

      Hi Judy! That’s a fantastic way of describing a morning journey. “a place where the proverbial rubber of the Christian life often hits the road”

      Still pleading the 5th though… 🙂
