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 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, 
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.

  • 每次看到911的報導都會哭<br />
    這些倖存者的報導我也看過<br />
    有時確實會想<br />
    神把我放在這個時間 這個點<br />
    或許都有他的計畫美意呢<br />

  • 911真的是一場噩夢,每次想到911,我就想到那些消防隊員...<br />
    每件事都有神的美意在裡面,我曾經看過一篇故事,就是在講神的大能與美意.<br />
    這是我們永遠都搞不清楚的,所以就是信..相信,我們的神~<br />
    一切都有祂的算計,一切都有祂的美意~

    Lina, all things happen for good reason in God's way. <br />
    May we all can remember that!<br />
    <br />
    熊﹐是啊!感謝祂!<br />

    藍﹐是的。911代表的絕對不只是破壞<br />
    而是在患難中的人性﹑<br />
    是破滅中的希望﹑<br />
    更是神奇妙愛的張顯!<br />
    就算是撒旦﹐<br />
    都無法改變的愛!<br />
    <br />
    塔﹐是的。人活在恨中真是可憐。<br />
    除非有神﹐否則那懂真愛呢﹖
