Stuck In Traffic

It’s 1 am and we’re stuck in traffic trying to get home from the beach. Looks like there is an accident up ahead. We’ve been sitting in the same spot for about 30 minutes. There is nothing else to do except blog.

We’ve had an exciting trip home. Stopping for bathroom breaks and wiper blades and then Emma got sick in the car. As you can imagine, we would like to get home. We just put a veggie tales movie in our van’s DVD player, so maybe that will keep the kids occupied or asleep.

update: We didn’t move for about 3 hours because of a multi-car pileup right in front of us. We were only a 1/2 mile behind the accident, so we didn’t get home til 3:30 in the morning. After sitting still for 3 hours, I decided to lead the family in prayer. We were all wanting to get home and we realized that we hadn’t prayed yet. About 30 seconds after I said amen, all the cars started cranking back up and we started moving! Luke said, “Daddy, why didn’t you pray sooner?” It was a great lesson on the power and importance of prayer, and a reminder to me to pray when something happens, not later.
