Remember when you wrote down the first thought you had this morning? Great. Now write a post about it.
The very first thought I had when I sat on the edge of the bed was God. I have had some problem solving to do the past few days. As usual it involved my brother Al and me and my own life.
The first thing I did when I awoke was pray. I asked God,” I still need help God. I need your guidance. You know how lousy I am at making some decisions. I want to be fair to Al and me. I know that I need to move forward, and I also understand where Al is at this moment. I pray dear Lord that you help me”.
I went about my morning. Making that first pot of hot fresh coffee. Using the lady’s room. Brushing my teeth, combing my mop of hair. I waddled out to the kitchen and poured the first cup of coffee. I lifted it close to my nose and inhaled the aroma that would kick-start my day.
I didn’t turn on the television. I always did, but for some reason this week I have left it alone until the mid-day news comes on. I sat down here at the computer and played my game first of all.
You know what? I think I am addicted to it. It is a free Facebook game called Candy Crush Saga. I just love games. I always have. Card games, board games, games where you challenge your mind. Hey, I have to keep my brain exercised at my age, right? I may just end up having the biggest brain in my nineties. Maybe I will go down in the guineas book of records.
I was answering comments here at WP and the phone rang. I looked to see who was calling and it was the call I had been waiting on for two days. A nice friendly chat started the conversation and then BINGO, God answered my prayer.
I was lucky and blessed. Sometimes I go days, weeks, months and years before I get an answer. We hung up both knowing we have an upcoming meeting next Tuesday. As I rested the phone back in its cradle, I immediately thanked God for answering my prayer.
I had no doubt if it was me or God’s answer. It was Gods. I felt lighter as I walked. I smiled as I went back to my comments. I thanked God one more time for making this chilly snowy day brighter.

It will be a good day indeed. God hears all. He just doesn’t work by our schedules most the time. But sometimes He does just to get our attention to remind us that prayer works.
I have thought that often. I usually tell God he will have to knock me over because I question so often if the answer is mine of his and then times like today I have no doubt he always listens and answers in his perfect timing
I had to nominate you for the award of Best Moments Award. Your blog always touches my heart…………
Wow! I’m flattered. I’m not familiar with it but just knowing that it touches one person is good for me. Thank you Terry.

Glad that you seem to have something moving forward for Al….Diane
