John Kerr reminded us of the stories from 9/11 as retold on Weekend Encounterfrom Acts International. I though we could use the unknown prompt as our Words for the Week.
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 New Jersey Turnpike because of an auto accident.
One missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change.
One’s 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.
Next time your morning seems to be going wrong, you can’t seem to find the car keys, and you hit every red traffic light, don’t get mad or frustrated; it may be just that God is watching over you.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Dreams are lovely … But dreams do not come true just because you dream them. It’s hard work that makes things happen. It’s hard work that creates change. — Shonda Rhimes
