How Was Your Day?

   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: Hmmm.
   Me: On the way home my phone went dead just as I picked up a call.
   God: Okay.
   Me: And on top of all that, 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: Well, 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.  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.  The person who made your first sandwich today was sick and I didn't want you to catch what he has. I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.  Your phone went dead because the person who was calling was going to give false witness about what you said during that call. I didn't even let you talk to them so that you would be covered.  Oh, and that foot massager 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.  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, child. It was just another day being your God and I love looking after my children.
