52 Blessings -- No Harm or Accident

Safety.  It seems like "please bless that no harm or accident will fall upon us" is a frequent phrase of many prayers.  But just because it's repeated often doesn't mean I'm any less grateful for it.

We left Idaho early this morning and as we knelt on my sister's kitchen floor she prayed that we would be protected and watched over as we drove home on slick roads.  Her pleading was so simple and so sincere it brought a warmth then and a comfort the whole way home.

We made it without harm or accident and had an enjoyable trip listening to Undaunted Courage, the story of the Lewis & Clark expedition.  (Who also enjoyed great safety in their travels.)  And, because the roads were bad, traffic crawled, and the trip lasted a few hours longer than normal, we got to listen to lots of the book.

I'm grateful for safety.  Always.

So glad you made it home safe and sound. Lots of prayers go up for the safe travel of our loved ones. I had that same warm feeling come over me yesterday we prayed for the safety of our kids who travel from here to Utah and again today as our daughter drove on snowy roads from Spanish Fork to Logan.
