When God Laughs

It’s funny how things work out sometimes. There are those occasions when we stop and scratch our heads and ask ourselves, “Was what just happened a coincidence or an act of God?” Well, today’s story is one of those kind of tales…and I am sure that God had a little chuckle. Enjoy!

I climbed into my van, aka the Mom Mobile, and headed to the library where I worked evenings. Just on the highway, I got an urge to pray. Please, Lord, don’t let anything hit me!

Why on earth had I prayed that?

Okay, I’m a fearful driver. Highways, lane changes, parallel parking all make me nervous. I always prayed before getting on the road. But this prayer was so specific that I decided not to listen to my audiobook or the radio. I had to be super vigilant.

I came up behind a beat-up pickup. The only other vehicle around. A bunch of two-by-fours was piled in its bed. Every time the truck hit a bump, the wood bounced. I peered closer. Nothing was tied down! No ropes or straps. Nothing.

My prayer! I had to switch lanes. Now!

The moment I swerved left, a two-by-four flew out of the truck. If I hadn’t moved, I could’ve been speared through the windshield.

I took the exit for the library and turned on the radio just as a song came on. Guess what it was?

“Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees!

    I know just how that feels. The perfect song at the perfect time. I have a saying I often say ‘God’s timing is perfect.’

    Thank you very much dear friend 🙂
    We only need to understand the small signs or listen to the thin voice in us which often warns us –
    it shurely was a help of God 🙂

    Wishing you all the best, my friend
