Earlier yesterday, Leslie told me to count my blessings. That's for sure.
Grand Junction blogger Todd Transmeier, himself a former miner, touched on this today in an excellent post that put forth a simple way to offer prayer for the miners' safety, resolve, and sanity as this ordeal continues:
Until these men are freed, I am going to say a little prayer for these men every time I turn on a light switch. I just need a reminder and I thought a fitting reminder would be to turn the dark to light using the resources provided by an underground miner.I'm going to do the same. There really isn't much more to say except to keep these men in your hearts as the rescue operation continues.
Oh, yeah - count your blessings.
