Funny…..I was in prayer a lot today — travel, needs identified, requests, etc. And I had forgotten it was the National Day of Prayer until I saw a news headline while walking through the airport in Detroit. While I am glad our government recognizes the power of prayer, I sure don’t need to government to approve or disapprove my communicating with the one who created me.

On my flights home I observed a few interesting, random items.

– As the pilot came on the intercom in the low, slow voice (I think there is a special aviation “intercom voice” class that is a requirement) he apologized for the 1/2 hour delay but hoped to make it up. He told us that we were carrying a human blood shipment and due to that the flight was considered an ambulance and would get special priority clearance on the ground for takeoff and in the air to Louisville. I thought that was kind of cool.

But then it hit me…..aren’t they ALWAYS carrying human blood? Hmmmmm……

– A guy that was the spitting image of Col. Sanders (the happy KFC guy) boarded the plane. I could not determine which was more interesting: the fact that he looked like Col. Sanders’ twin brother or the fact that he was wearing an old fashioned pale pink suit. He looked like an Easter peep version of Col. Sanders. Pretty funny.

He sure was pimpin’ though!

    Easter Peep Col. Sanders is sweet!

    National Day of Prayer felt no different to me than all my other days of prayer.

    Glad you made it home safe and sound.

    Yes, the rouge Col. Sanders was quite rockin’. I wish I had snapped a picture of it.

    And I agree…..the National Day of Prayer was just like all my other days of prayer. Glad we have it as a country but didn’t really affect me.
