This past week our family was in “travel mode”. Our son and daughter-in-law were in San Francisco for a few days, our daughter was in Philadelphia visiting friends and my husband and I traveled to Houston to watch our five grandchildren while mommy and daddy were in San Francisco, and our other son and daughter-in-law and my Mom and Dad remained here at home.

Yet we were all just as close to the Father as we have always been – as close as a whisper. He is never far from us no matter where we are. Prayer brings us instantly into His presence.
This Thursday we will celebrate the National Day of Prayer. I thought I would share some thoughts on prayer that have been very meaningful to me:
The rest of my Tuesday post is here at the Laced With Grace site. Please meet me there.
