Here, we sit this Saturday morning on Interstate 65, in Southwestern Kentucky. It looks like a parking lot and we haven't moved an inch in over an hour!
People, are now gathering outside their cars. Nearby, children are playing hopscotch on the highway, to pass the time. According to a nearby trucker, there has been a car accident just around the bend. Ahead of us lies the unknown. Has someone lost a loved one? Is someone suffering? Rescue vehicles have just passed by...Oh, Lord I will not complain. I will pray.
As I look around, I see, Red Buds in bloom. Butterflies, flutter past, as we wait on this beautiful sunny day. My camera always with me, we take photo's of the scenes around us. People are good, kind and friendly. Strangers...but today we become neighbors, with much in common. Some of us, eager to be home. Yet, none complaining...we will get there, much later than expected. But, we will get there.
Blessed to be alive and whole, our families waiting. Thankful, that God placed us on this road...because I see Jesus here.
I wrote this as we waited and after about 2 hours, we were on our way. This Cherry tree in full bloom welcomed us home...along with hugs from the Grandbabies and Pizza from Kell.
