As you might know, the head of a company survived 9/11 because his son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike because of an auto accident.
OneÂ employee missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change, making her late getting to the South Tower.
One’s car wouldn’t start.
One went back to answer the telephone.
One had a child that dawdled and didn’t get ready as soon as he should have.
One just couldn’t get a taxi.
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.Â He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid. that is why he is alive today.
On a personal note:Â My friends son worked at the Pentagon!Â He was an F18 pilot on loan from the Canadian Air Force Base near Ottawa.Â He was part of Strategic Planning.Â Never before had he missed one day of work, he loved his job!Â But that day when on the way to the Pentagon he became so violently ill he pulled over to the side of the road and threw up!Â He returned home only to see that a plane had plowed into his office!Â He had never been sick in his life, nor has he been sick since.Â But he is alive today because he was sick that day.
Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator or turn back to answer a ringing telephone ………..All the little things that annoy me,Â I think to myself:Â Â This is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment.
Next time your morning seems to be going wrong, the children are slow getting dressed, you can’t seem to find the car keys, you hit every traffic light…….. Don’t get angry or frustrated;
God is at work watching over you.Â May God continue to bless you with all those annoying little things
And may you remember their possible purpose!
Sharon,Â Romans 11:33
