The Blessing of Being Stuck in Traffic
Yesterday, Ashley and I were returning home after a doctor’s appointment and a light supper. When we got on I-40 at Exit 24, we noticed that the semi trucks were sort of backed up, but traffic was moving in the left lane fairly well. The exit we use to get off and head to our house is Exit 20, only 4 miles west. We got on the Interstate at about 7:05 p.m. We did not arrive at home until 8:15 p.m. There had been a chemical spill/accident further west on I-40, and all west-bound traffic was diverted off the highway at our Exit 20. Whew! Fortunately, we had a full gas tank, and it was a gorgeous, temperate evening. The sun had just begun to set.
The real blessing of all this is that God had reminded me to bring my camera along with me that day in the car. The section of the highway we were on is surrounded by the Smokies, and the cloud formations and the sunset’s light through the clouds and spilling into the valley was a spectacular sight! It made what could have been a real headache into a blessing that I hope you, too, will also enjoy! Here are some of the photos I took from my seat in the car.
Have you captured any light lately?
