Three Word Wednesday-On A Friday

Faith
Miracle
Whisper


Hush


We go through life, asking for miracles at football games or when we stand at the bedside of a terminally ill loved one or putting forth the desire to not be alone. Our prayers are whispered, rising up on the smoke of candles... carried in the frosty air as the smoke from our breath moves into the world. Sometimes, those prayers move though space and time, and reach the ear of God, who grants the request. Faith is when we continue to believe in both the words we sent forth into the hush and in the Master of the Universe, even as the thing we asked for is not granted...still going forward, in full trust that one day... one day... it will happen.

The great thing about prayers is that the odds never change:

1 in 3 your prayer will be answered immediately.
1 in 3 your prayer will be answered, but not yet.
1 in 3 your prayer will be answered, but you won't like the answer.
1 in 3 your prayer will be ignored.
1 in 3 you'll find that your friends aren't any good at calculating odds, which is weird when you consider that they live in Las Vegas.
