Monday Manna




Afternoon  Sweet Friends,
and
How might you be this fine Monday???

I am over that stomach virus or whatever
it was, but just got up at 11:00, cause I
only slept 3 hrs. last night,  so went back
to bed about 8:30, so got another 21/2 
hours thankfully,  so feeling pretty good
now,  but gotta get busy,  so I will leave
you with this wonderful email I rec'd
from my friend in Tennessee.  Think it
will encourage you as it did me!



This is a great reminder of how God looks after us.

Something to think about.

Me: God, can I ask you a question?
God: Sure.
Me: Promise you won't get mad.
God: I promise.
Me: Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do you mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late.
God: Yes.
Me: My car took forever to start.
God: Okay.
Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.
God: Huummm.
Me: On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call.
God: All right.
Me: And on top of it all, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massager and relax, but it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today!
Why did you do that?
God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning and I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
Me: (humbled): Oh....
GOD: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
Me: Oh. (ashamed)
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick and I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.
Me: (embarrassed): Okay....
God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false information, I didn't even let you talk to them so you would be covered.
Me: (softly) I see God.
God: Oh, and that foot massager,-- it had a short that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.
Me: I'm sorry, God.
God: Don't be sorry. Just learn to trust me -- in all things, the good and the bad.
Me: I will trust you.
God: And don't doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your plan.
Me: I won't, God. And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything today.
God: You're welcome, my child.


 Have a great Monday and thanks so much for coming by,

Hugs and Blessings,
Nellie

Hi Nellie, Wonderful post and great email your friend sent. I often try to think of the things the Lord has protected me from when things don't go as I hoped.
So glad you saw Beck last week.
Have a great day sweet friend.
Hugs, Noreen
