*Another one from the archives I forgot to post. This happened last fall
and it’s still very much etched in my memory.*
I got pulled over yesterday. It was traumatic. Mostly because it hasn’t happened in over ten years…I drive like a Grandma- for reals. It was because I was talking on Voxer- a lovely app that I’ve grown attached to since I can’t stand talking on the phone. I am a stickler about texting and driving- NEVER do it and since I NEVER talk on my phone- I don’t do that in the car either. But alas.
This might sound weird but it felt good to get in trouble. Being an adult without a boss sometimes gives too much leeway…and I keep forgetting who my ultimate Boss is. I have lost some of my fear of the Lord and I don’t like it. Yesterday reminded me that God cares about me so much- and there are things in my life I need to rearrange. While I can’t get a ticket for being lazy…it was good to be reminded I have a loving Father who is watching me- and I will be accounting for my time when I leave this earth.
The fine for using a phone while driving is $250 and 2 points but thankfully the cop was nice enough to only give me a $54 ticket and a few ‘be carefuls’ bless his soul. Josiah was relieved that I wasn’t going to jail and when my heart stopped beating out of my chest, I realized I was gonna be ok.
