The Little Things....

something to think about...



The 'L I T T L E' Things .



As you might know, 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.


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
< /SPAN> 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,
Turned back to answer the 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.

Excellent post. There have been several times when I was traveling quite a bit that I may have been delayed, and later I would come across a bad accident. I have often thought... would that have been me, if I had left when I wanted?

Thanks for dropping by.

My excuse for being late would be "Just had to respond to a last minute blog entry"
