There are train tracks not far from our house.
I usually encounter a passing train when I'm in a hurry.
So I just have to wait until it passes.
Sometimes it seems like it takes forever. During that time I have listened to the radio, or taken pictures, or counted the train cars, or made a quick phone call (yea for cell phones!), or added items to a grocery list.
Sometimes though I use those minutes to pray for those on my prayer list. It's probably the best use for those minutes.
And before you know it, the caboose arrives.
How do you spend the time when you're waiting in a line - or on a train to pass - or caught in traffic?
