As 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.
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.
One of them missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
time to change.
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 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.
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.
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 mad or
frustrated; 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.
