Today I am thankful for delays.  I know that may sound weird, but there have been so many close calls in my life, times when if I had not been delayed then I could have been in harms way.  How many times have you been running late for work, only to pass an accident on the way that happened just moments before?

I am thankful for other delays as well. There have been times when I didn’t get to go somewhere on a trip only to have the weather turn bad.  There have been times when I thought I had landed the perfect job, only to find at the last minute that they chose someone else.  There have been times when I have been stuck in the same place wanting to move forward and finding that I just couldn’t seem to get a handle on things until later on when suddenly it seemed everything just fell into place.

I don’t have any answers for why we are delayed at times.  It can be frustrating and disappointing, but I believe everything happens for a reason.  When we are delayed then there is a reason that we may or may not ever be made aware of.  Now days I have learned to pay more attention if one thing after another goes wrong I have learned to question, if there are odd events and delays along the way I will sometimes opt out of going to the event.  If there are that many red flags then there must be a reason.

Sometimes I thank God for the delays, because the delays caused me to miss the storm.  Life is a learning experience, be thankful for all the lessons and insight it has to offer.

  1. I so marvel how you put into words thoughts and beliefs that I have previously thought about but have never quite verbalized. Your insights and how you clarify them through your eloquent writing are … simply brilliant. ~Thea

  2. You do have an attitude of gratitude don’t you? This shows up in your writings. Clearly you are someone who holds caring feelings about others.

    God Bless
