Didn’t You See the Stop Lights ?
For years Shelly’s husband denied that he was an aggressive driver. That changed one day when they were out for a drive with their three-year-old son, Mathew.
Seeing teaching opportunity, mom asked Matthew about traffic lights.
“What does a red light mean? Shelly inquired. “Stop”.
“Good. How about green?” “Go”.
“And yellow?” she continued.
And in his best deep voice impression of Daddy, Mathew bellowed…”Hang on!”
Reflections: I’m Not Lost!
Have you ever wondered why men and women are so different in taking and giving directions?
If a man gives directions, it goes like this; Go three miles, turn left, go seven miles, turn right, then go a quarter of a mile and you will see it on your right, you can’t miss it! Now I am blonde and a creative thinker is there a three-mile sign, how will I know? With these directions I could end up in someone’s cow pasture, never to be seen again.
I drive by landmarks, go to Target, turn left, go down to the Burger King, and turn right. Drive to Sears, and turn into parking lot, the place is right next to the shoe store that is having a huge sale, 70% off. You can’t miss it. (Now that is my kind of directions)
Thankfully, we decided to get a GPS for the car, saves Lyle and I a lot of time, him from driving all over the country trying to find an address, and me from getting lost. However, in my creative moments, I have been known, to second guess the GPS system, and go a different way because it didn’t look right to me. Only to get lost, have the satellite locate and get me back on track.
It gives me great security and peace in my life to know that I am never off of God’s GPS system. He always knows where I am, and even if I wander off, he has his eye on me. The bible says:
Psalm 139: 1-3
O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do.
His loving care sustains, guides, and protects me; I just need to follow his directions. ©
Thank you, dear friends for spending your time with me, I would love to hear from you.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs to all.
