This was a modified version of a forward I received on Sept. 11 but it’s a good Sunday reminder that God has a hand in our lives, even when we don’t know it or are unhappy about it.

Several people survived the Sept. 11 attacks because of:

  • A child starting kindergarten; a child dawdling.
  • A faulty alarm clock.
  • Spilled food that required a change of clothes.
  • Car troubles, accidents and late buses.
  • Many other every day and maybe even irritating reasons.

When I’m stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a phone … all the little things that annoy me … I will try to remember that this is exactly where God wants me to be at this moment. And being here just may save my life.
