A Flat Tire on a Lonely Road

Thank you for your prayers for Leigh Anne. She seems to be resting comfortably at the present time. 

flat-tire.jpgYesterday,I went to Amarillo for an exam review . As I was driving back, I had a flat. I can’t remember the last time I changed a tire on a car.

Used to when I did such a thing I was in my pickup equipped with an air compressor and all of the tools that I need. After about thirty minutes of lying in stickers, scraping my knuckles, and struggling with the right place to put the jack (I eventually read the owners manual), I was finished and beginning to load back up (while still picking a few grass burrs out of my shirt.)

This morning I feel thankful that I was able to change that tire, and that I driving instead of Teague or Leigh Anne. 

I had the opportunity to see the stars and realize once again how small I am in this enormous creation. 

But I really never felt like I was alone…
