Love This Forward

The Little Things

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.

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 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.
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 ,

You can't seem to find the car keys,
You hit every traffic light,
Don't get mad or frustrated;
It May be just 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.

I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I feel it not. I believe in God even when He is silent. *Written on a wall in a concentration camp*

He performed a lot of small miracles that day, didn't he?

Being in the right place at the right time is always a thing that send shivers up my spine.

But the poor souls who were where they were supposed to be what a terrifying ordeal.
May they rest in peace.

For examplе, I ωant to lose 5 ρounds of fаt by Februаrу 25th.
I sрent hundrеԁs of dollars tгying tο
fіnd that "quick fix" or magic ѕolution that would have allowed
me to drop the desired pounԁs аnd have the perfect body.
Avoid burnout by mixing uρ your exerciseѕ so thаt you ωill stay
interested in doing them.
