I received this in an email today and it really hit a cord with me… Honoring those who we lost and remembering God’s plan for those that survived.
The ‘ L I T T L E ‘ Things~
As you might remember, 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.
One of them
Missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
Car wouldn’t start.
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 a few blocks away 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,
Have to stop and repeat what I just said clearly …
All the little things that annoy me.
I think to myself,
This is exactly where
God wants me to be
doing exactly what God wants me to do
At this very moment..
So, next time your morning seems to be
You can’t seem to find the car keys,
You hit every traffic light trying to get to work,
Don’t get mad or frustrated ;
It May be just that
God is already at work watching over you.
May God continue to bless you
With all those annoying little things
And may you remember their possible purpose.
