One day at a busy airport, the passengers on a commercial airliner were seated waiting for the pilot to show up so they could get under way to their destination. After a long wait, the pilot and co-pilot finally appeared in the rear of the plane. To the passengers’ surprise, they begin walking up to the cockpit through the center aisle bumping into passengers right and left. The Pilot was using a white can while the co-pilot held tightly to a guide dog. Both had their eyes covered with sunglasses.

“A decent young lady from a good home does not stay out so late,” Mother flashed her dark eyes at me.
I loved my new job and her words lacerated me as she sent me off with a heaping serving of warm guilt every time I walked out the door.
There was little to do in the control room at the little Christian TV station. The live shows ended at 10:00. The programming was pre-recorded until midnight. Quietly I waited. Close to 11:30 he always called. I felt wickedly clever to find a quiet place to talk.

Obedience is a rebellious word. It’s a word we all love to hate. Its demanding requirements can wreak havoc on the family unit. Couples divorce because of it, and children become defiant and unreasonable. The family is splintered into multiple factions all because of obedience, or lack thereof. This is not how God intended obedience to be perceived.

Have you ever felt like when you prayed, that the prayer just bounced off the ceiling? Is God even hearing me? Recently my small group at church was facing this problem. Many of the girls in the small group felt like their prayers were not being heard. When I pray, I sometimes get very distracted. I can be in the middle of talking to the King of Kings and next thing I know, I am thinking about what’s for dinner. I immediately feel guilty because I am not giving God my full attention. When I shared this with my small group, I realized that I was not alone. A lot of the girls felt the exact same way I did.

Some years ago, I heard that a young girl named Suzy stood before her Aunts and Uncles. With big grins they asked that often asked question which is heard the day after Christmas. “Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas?”
Suzy smiled and said, “Nope.”
