Guardian Angel

Everything in life is about time and place, from the people we meet to the various situations we find ourself in. I was anxious all day as I prepared for the last community fundraiser of the season . With the car packed, I went for a ride of 14 long winding miles up and down greene county hills. I had the month of March for my calendar party table, as the auction was going on and the door prizes were being called out several at the table mentioned how unlucky we were. Unlucky? no more than 40 minutes earlier I pulled up to my parking spot, put the shifter into reverse to backup and felt as my breaks gave out. It could have happened anywhere along the route, but they gave out just as I pulled in front of the church. Time and place, everything in life is about time and place. You hear mention of it all the time " it wasn't his time" "we are just passing through""being in the right place at the right time or the wrong place at the wrong time." On the contrary today I was very lucky or blessed, I shouted out thank God! and my son smiled and said" thank Darwin."

Lord, Lord I need to get home,
so keep and eye one me, I'm not
driving alone.

Lord , Lord nows not the time, I've
got a lot to do on this road of mine.
