Oh no, sometimes that driver sounds like me ::::::guilt sets in::::: then I remember that my committment to the kingdom MUST surely extend to the way I drive. (then I'm the wee corsa who drops suddenly from 45 to 30 with no sign of speed camera in sight!)

Jim - please keep praying for drivers - you might just bless me one of these days!

So you don't like my grandma's driving hey. I'll be sure to let her know ... and I'll pass on that at least one bloke reckons she needs to discipline her dog.

Lynn - Interesting thought, blessing other drivers, you know, blessing rather than cursing. And of course praying with our eyes open - if there's anything worse than speaking on a mobile ehile driving, it might be closing our eyes to pray......
Now Jason, if I'd known it was your grandma, I'd have approached her with pastoral intent, knowing she had the same gentleness in her genes as your good self. Might even have quoted Forsyth to her, he must have said something about the centrality of the ego in the unrestrained rant against the rest of the world.

Endlessly Restless

I had my own moment of 'irrational annoyance' at temporary traffic lights this week (blog title: The magic of an inconvenient moment). I guess we all have different ways of dealing with frustrations!

Hi Jim,

I have enjoyed occasionally dipping into your website. I particularly enjoyed your March 7th thoughts on "Driving, praying and laughing" and wondered if you would mind it being reproduced in our church magazine with an acknowledgement of the source?

With every good wish.
