Just thinking...

I am so blessed to have so many amazing people in my life! I was thinking about all the prayers that were said for me during the past few weeks. My Dad called it "petitioning the Lord." I like the idea of a prayer being a petition. I think it honors the fact that He really is in charge and that He ultimately gets to decide, and yet the word petition still recognizes how willing He is to hear our pleas and to answer our prayers.

As I thought about it, I realized I had people praying for me on at least 3 different continents, in at least 6 different countries, and all over the US as far north as Minnesota, as far south as the Florida Keys and from New York to California.

Really. I am so blessed.
