Good morning, everyone! Happy Monday! Where in the world did the weekend go? It vanished in a blink! I feel like there should be a law that everyone must take 3 days off each week. Two days doesn’t seem like enough, does it? After all, it takes one day to recover from the previous week , another to prepare for the upcoming week, and then you have to find time for recreation in between. Can I please get an amen this morning?!?!
Well…now that we have that out of the way, lets get started. Have you noticed how things don’t always go as planned? I mean you can have good intentions for your day, but then something happens that throws everything off course. This was the case for the Watson’s yesterday. While one of our children and their friend were running a quick errand, they were hit by another vehicle. The driver of that vehicle darted out of the median into oncoming traffic. Thankfully, everyone involved were okay; however, it left the two of them saying, “It’s strange how things can change in a matter of minutes.”
It’s true! Life as we know it can change in an instant. And it generally happens without notice, as with the accident. I’m sure each of you can relate to this on some level. I know I sure can. There have been many times in my own life where I was blind sided by things that completely changed the course of my life. It was as though, life as I knew it up until then stopped and a new life began. Although not every unexpected event will have this type of effect on us, they will certainly effect us in someway.
Can you think of a time when something happened unexpectedly in your life? How did it make you feel in that moment? Was it something that changed the course of your day, or did it impact your life? This is what we will be talking about this blog week. My hope is that we will some how be able to see the Lords hand in it all. While I do not think that he causes unforeseen things to happen to us , I do believe that he allows them so that we can learn and grow as a result of them. I hope that you will stick around as we dive deeper into this topic this week. I’ll see you here tomorrow. Take care!
