Today started with a fast trip to go to Missouri for my job. But I got to where I was to pick up and the freight wasn’t there.(I haul for a package company. Within 300 miles of Indianapolis) So seems the load they sent me after had been sent out the day before on a national logistics company. It had arrived and been signed for by 11:21 this morning. Before they had even contacted me but the message had not got to the right people.
So I go to the the home office e where they tell me that they don’t have anything. So I get almost home to find out they have a load if I want it going up by Fort Wayne. So I go back get the package at rush hour and head North.
Traffic is horrific I get into bumper to bumper traffic and have to hit my brakes to keep from hitting the guy in front of me, who is avoiding the semi in front of him. But the girl behind me doesn’t see me hit my brakes. So she hits me.
So I spend the next hour dealing with the paperwork and the cop. Who puts the wrong insurance down on the report.( that is going to be a hassle to straighten)
Then I spend another hour trying to get past the local concert venue that must have had a Really Big Show( to quote Ed Sullivan)
So I get to my destination only 28 mins late. (The customer wasn’t upset thank goodness.
And I get back into town just in time to deal with the traffic from the concert that has just let out.
So what makes this a blessed day?
Well the customers were not Unhappy they each got the packages they needed. Both will use us again.
As far as they accident I go e praise to God for no one getting hurt. In that traffic it could have been a massacre.
And I truly hope the concert was good for as much traffic that was going to and from it.
So I guess it’s a matter of perspective. What I learned was don’t panic and give God the praise even when the worst is happening. It will work out one way or another.
Maybe not the way you want but it will work out.
This old world makes you stop and think on a daily basis. But are we thinking about the right things. Do we give God the credit he deserves in our life. Here is a list of things I have been thinking about lately,
Giving praise to our Lord,
Making my prayers more effective,
Praying for our troops
Wondering what is on the other side of the Milky Way ( the cosmos nor the chocolate bar)
Enjoying the early summer evenings
Enjoying my husband of Twenty some years.
Thanking our Lord for my family and friends.
What I don’t think about on a regular basis,
What is in style
Office politics( in my company or in the country for that matter)
Who has done what to who on any or all television shows.
What I do care about is giving praise and thanks for my life to the good lord.
Spring is here at least according to the weatherman. But when it’s less than twenty degrees at night it’s kinda hard to believe it. Even through the neighbors crocus are blooming and the Robins and Blue birds are here.
The skies are beautiful. And the old saying March comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion is appropriate this March. With more snow and rain mix planned for the weekend.
But today in the air even though it was brisk there was something in the air that gave the feeling of Spring. Maybe it was the idea of it. But the smell was different.
So even though it’s cold out take a deep breath and see if you notice it also. Maybe it is because Easter is a short week away.
But may we all be blessed, during this season of renewal.
There are so many things that I could use right now. But here is a list that matters most.
My Faith in Our Lord Jesus to be stronger with each passing day.
Everyone to have a safe and prosperous year, (military, Government and anyone that is ill)
For the unemployed to find jobs (those without jobs, those coming out of school those waiting on their certifications.)
Everyone to have their dreams come true. Be it writer’s getting their first story Sold, or taking that trip to climb Mount Everest. Go live those dreams.
May our Children know that a) their parents love them, B.) I f they have left home may they find their way back home and Those that are missing be remembered for ever.
May our Parents that are ill either physically or in some cases mentally find the health they need, and may they also realize that their families love them.
Yes I could make be noise about what I need. But what I need. may sound over used and folks Christmas is over But I’m going to say it anyway.
Let’s have some Peace on Earth and Good will to men. Bless us all everyone.~ thank you Charles Dickens.
