The Car Keys

I attended Mass this particular Sunday at a church a good number of miles from home.  It was cold and I wore a heavy coat and hat.  I had brought along several books which I intended to give to a friend I would meet.

When the service was over, I met my friend, left the church, went to the car, unlocked the door and prepared to begin my journey home.

Suddenly I remembered I had left my hat in the church.  Planning to return quickly, I turned to leave the car.  I ALWAYS lock the door, but this time a quiet inner voice said to me, “Leave the door unlocked.”  It was almost against my better judgment, but I left the car unlocked and hurried back into the church.   

I found my hat and returned to my car in what was now an empty parking lot. 

There . . . in front of me . . .  in the ignition . . . were my keys!  I had forgotten to remove them when I returned to the church.  I cannot number the many complications I would have faced if my keys had been locked inside.    

Now, when I hear this inner voice speaking to me, I pay more attention.
