“The common man prays, ‘I want a cookie right now!’ And God responds, ‘If you’d listen to what I say, tomorrow it will bring you 100 cookies.”
― Criss Jami, Killosophy
It is not easy and I am not especially good at it.
I’ve been waiting to hear from a surgeon about scheduling a procedure I need to have done.
I have been waiting for several days.
Yesterday, I reached my limit and spoke up. I am learning in today’s health care environment, you HAVE to speak up.
The end result, thanks to my physician listening to me and taking action, I saw a surgeon this morning. My procedure will be Monday.
But–there’s more to the story.
As I drove to my appointment, I prayed I’d get on the schedule quickly.
After my consultation, I was told there is a spot open for Monday. Thank you, God. An added plus, I’d just had my annual physical so I had all the pre-op studies done–yay, me.
Driving home, I remembered there was an estate sale I wanted to check out. What a grand diversion–at the next stop I put the address into my phone and made my way to the sale.
There was a little bit of everything at this sale. I wandered around until I came to a room filled with books. I knew I’d found my spot. Nothing caught my eye until I saw this little black prayer book–so appropriately titled, Healing Prayers.
The best example of a God wink I’ve seen in a long time.
