Next time your morning seems to be going wrong and the children are slow getting dressed and you can't seem to find
the car keys and you hit every traffic light, don't get mad or frustrated; praise God instead because God
is at work watching over you.
After Sept. 11th, I happened to call a man on business whom I didn't know and haven't nor will probably ever
talk to again. But on this particular day, he felt like talking. He was the head of security for a company that had
invited the remaining members of another company who had been decimated by the attack on the Twin Towers to share their
office space. With his voice full of awe he told me stories of why these people were alive and their counterparts
were dead. In the end, all the stories were just about the little things that happen to us. You might know, the
head of the company got in late that day because his son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts. There were other stories that I hope and
pray will someday be gathered and put in a book. The one that struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes
that morning, took the various means to get to work, but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped
at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid. That is why he is alive.
Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone...all the little things that
annoy me...I think to myself, this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment.
May God continue to bless you with all those annoying things.
