Sometimes prayers are answered in the most unusual ways. I have a pretty standard routine for my day. We try to finish school and housework, have dinner started and the kids go out to play while I catch up on some paperwork with a couple of afternoon television shows playing in the background. This morning, in my frustrated haste to get everything underway, I asked God for just a little bit of time to get caught up.
Today, during the Barack Obama Infomercial (formerly known as Oprah) I realized this was the extra hour I needed to get some things marked off my list. Television off and :38 minutes into the hour, I’ve bathed the dog and little kitty, started a load of laundry, scrubbed my kitchen sink, organized some craft supplies, started a fire in my fireplace, cleaned a toilet and made this notation.
I can accept the joy the election holds for some, but this level of hero-worship borders on idolatry to me.
