the head of a company survived 9/11. . .
because his son started kindergarten that morning.
Another fellow was alive because. . .
it was his turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because. . .
her alarm clock didn't go off.
One had been stuck on the NJ Turnpike. . .
due to an auto accident.
Another fortunate person. . .
missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and. . .
had to take time to change.
car wouldn't start.
hail a taxi.
The one that struck me most was:
the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
took various means to get to work, but before he got
there, he developed a blister on his foot. . .
so he stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today.
Now, when I am
stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer
a ringing telephone. . .
All the little things that annoy me sooo much. . .
I stop and think to myself -
This is exactly where
God wants me to be,
At this very moment.
So, the next time your morning seems to be
going all wrong -
The children are slow getting dressed,
You can't seem to find the car keys,
You hit every traffic light.
Don't get mad or frustrated;
It may just be that . . .
God is at work watching over you.
May God continue to bless you. . .
. . .with all those annoying little things, and. . .
may you remember their possible purpose!
Pass this on to someone else, if you'd like.
There is NO LUCK attached.
If you delete this. . .it's okay.
God's Love Is Not Dependent On E-Mail!
