This is a post that will make some of my friends hopeful, and make others wonder who hacked my WordPress account. Today I did something I’ve not done in a long while: I prayed.
I can’t say why I did it, other than that it felt like I should at that moment. There were no extraordinary happenings today, I was not in crisis nor emotionally overwhelmed.
There was nothing remarkable about the circumstances – in a car on our way to the mother-in-law’s (that, in and of itself, may be reason enough for some to pray).
Simply put, it felt right that I should pray. As for what I prayed about, it was about the circumstances that made me ‘lose my religion’, so to speak – mostly it was a prayer for understanding, if not acceptance.
So that’s that. You can take it at face value. I am not ‘re-born’ and have not ‘seen the light’. Maybe I will achieve understanding, perhaps not. Maybe it will feel right to pray again, perhaps not. We’ll see.
