Attitude of Gratitude

day 2:  i am grateful for that still small voice.

today i had things that needed to be done at a certain time.  i head on my merry way to get them started when i realize the place is closed for inspection.  seriously?!  no notice at all and i had to get this done. there was a number to call so i called it.  left a message and waited there 20 minutes and NOTHING.  i decided that i couldn't wait any longer and i must leave.  as i was pulling away i saw a vehicle come into the same parking lot as me. i was prompted to turned around and so i did.  {i don't know why, yes i do}  the gentlemen was going into the building i needed to get into.  i politely asked "how long it would be close" and he said "all day".  i told him who i worked for and that i really needed to get in there to do my job.  he asked how long it would take.  i responded with "it depends on how many permits there are".  he said to come in and i did.  i was able to complete my job all because i listened to a voice telling me to wait and to turn around.  sometimes when you feel or get that prompt to do something is always good to listen.  there have been many times in my life {some life and death situations} where this has happened to me.  i am so grateful to have the knowledge that i should stop and listen! 

have you ever been prompted to stop and listen?
