(I am off in just a few minutes. In the meantime, I loved this Ordinary Miracle from our reader, Donna Kelly. It hearkened back to a frequent occurrence during my pilgrimage. It would threaten to rain and I would pray the Lord would give me time to find a bridge to get under. Almost invariably, around the next bend would be a bridge…and the downpour would commence shortly after I was safely under it. -CJ)

Last week it was pouring rain . It was as if the angels were using buckets to make sure everything was doused. I had to drop off a package that day. When I got into my car, the car was in the garage so even though I knew it was pouring rain I neglected to grab a big umbrella. I realized my mistake about half way there.
So, I said out loud in the car, “Gosh, Lord, it would be so awesome if this rain could stop – or at least slow down – really soon.” I kept driving in a downpour. When I parked next to the door of the UPS store though, the rain stopped. Just ceased. Not a drop! I ran inside and handed the gal my parcel. Received my receipt and went back to the car. The very second I sat down and closed my door the rain started pouring as it had for hours prior.
God paused that rain just for the three minutes I needed. I don’t normally “bother” God with my day to day stuff, but I learned such a lesson about how much He cares for me – even in the little things like getting wet in the rain. I need to remember to ask and trust more often in all things!
