Ever wonder why those little annoying side trips, accidents,
distractions and petty chores have to keep interrupting your day?

Where God Wants Me To Be
I happened to call on a man whom I didn't know and had not
before nor will ever talk to again. But this day, he felt like talking.
He was head of security of a company that had invited the remaining members of a
company who had been decimated by the attack on The Twin Towers to share their office
With his voice full of awe he told me stories of why these people were alive and
their counterparts were dead, and all the stories were just little things.
You know, the head of the company got in late that day because his son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts. There were
other stories that I hope and pray will someday be gathered and put in a book.
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.
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.
May God continue to bless you with all those annoying things.
