Yesterday started with me being late for work, because my car was totally frosted over. Why does this happen in California? Then, when I was getting in my car to head back to work after my lunch, my car decided that it wasn't going to start. Thankfully I have an extra truck lying around (a total red neck truck, but who cares when you're going to be stranded). Now, let's fast forwarded to around 6:25 PM when I totally spilled my coffee all over me, and all over my kitchen counter as I was about to head out the door to go to church. Did I mention that I was already running late? I ended up having to change my clothes, which resulted in me being even later to church. Oh, and it get's even better! I was in the classroom with all my AWANA girls ( I teach AWANA classes at my church on Wednesday nights), and I then proceeded to spill my coffee all over the binder that we use to keep records of their progress in their books. Seriously, Allyssa? Clumsy much? Luckily I have the most amazing little girls in my class who commented on how awesome the binder is going to smell now that it had coffee all over it. Sometimes kids have such a better perspective on life than us adults.
Honestly, if the only problems I'm having right now is a broken down car and some spilled coffee, then I think things are going pretty good. Wouldn't ya say? It makes me think of the verse in 1 Thessalonians that says to " Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you".
So, today I am thanking the Lord for spilled coffee and broken down cars
What do you have to thank God for today?
