The Little Things of Life

Things of Life


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.

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.


Pass this on to someone else, if you’d like.

There is NO LUCK attached.

If you delete this, it’s okay:

God’s Love Is Not Dependent On E-Mail!!
