From My Inbox : Annoying LIttle Things
On this day, two planes rammed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York. The terrorists timed their attack at the hour where people have already started reporting for their day’s work. Most of those who were there on time, did not survive the attack. And those who were late for work on that day were saved from sure death. Let me share with you an inspiring article about some of those who did not arrived at the World Trade Center on time.
Here are the circumstances of some of those who were lucky enough not to be in the WTC at a appointed time when they were supposed to be there:
- The head of a major company survived the tragedy of “9/11” in New York 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 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 get a taxi.
- One man 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.
They did not get to the building on time and that is why they are alive today.
Now when you
– get stuck in traffic
– miss an elevator…
– turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
– all the little things that annoy you…
Think to yourself. This is exactly where God wants you to be at this very moment.
The 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 and appreciate their possible purpose.
