My frustration levels reach record heights when an answering machine puts me 'on hold.' The background music does not reduce my stress or keep me from repeatedly glancing at the clock or wristwatch. Maybe Braham's lullaby would better calm frazzled nerves. I wonder how God reacts when we put crucial decisions in the holding pattern.
"After some days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, who was Jewish, he sent for Paul and listened to him on the subject of faith in Christ Jesus.

and in the day of salvation, I helped you.'
Look, now is the acceptable time;
look, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 HCS)."
