Prayer

Lord, I am really tired of driving and the trouble of keeping a car. When I think of all else I have, I realize how truly blessed I am. I don't need a car to be complete - I just need you.


I am relieving myself of one more encumbrance. Thank you, Lord, for giving me the good sense to give up driving and leave it to those who are better equipped for that particular task. ~Amen~
