The Hands-Free Phone

Today while driving between the two nursing homes I work for I decided I really needed to pray. So I got started...yes, praying out loud. I always feel better after "voicing" my worries and concerns. Well, today I was feeling better with every word until I look over and see these two individuals staring at me from in their "big manly truck". I smile, turn casualy to face the red light and calmly raise my right hand to my ear and laugh. I'm not sure if it made me look more dorky (or insane), but all I could think was pretend you are on one of those hand-free phones!

The moral of this story is... if you are going to pray out loud in your car at least look like you are singing. You know, bob your head a bit. I don't think you would draw as much attention as a crazy girl looking like she is talking to herself-ha!

I love that you tried to pretend you were on a hands-free phone. I wish I was there to see it! LOL! I think its wonderful that you are praying out loud on your way to work--I bet it makes such a difference in your day. What a great reminder that you can pray anytime, anywhere.

You know, I've never thought about that- if I pray in the car, I always do it aloud too! I'm sure people think I'm crazy! I'll have to start bobbing my head! :)

that was quick thinking! i think i would have just gotten all read in the face! i'm glad to hear that i'm not the only one praying out loud ... i don't know why, it just seems to make it more real!

Good save! They probably didn't even notice, or if they did (say it with me), "Who Cares?" You were in the middle of an important converation!

Yikes! I meant conversation.

Oh my gosh, that cracks me up! You know, I have to admit, I don't usually pray out loud (my personal prayers). I think I need to do a little more of that. At least in private... :-)

I know that feeling... It has happened to me before, but I just turned toward the back seat... as if I had been talking to Kamri. She was singing to her music so it looked totally right. We should just make signs that say..."I'm not looney... just praying to my Father" to hold up when at a stop light. Ha!
