My theme for 2009 has been faith. Today was evidently Two-fer Tuesday in the Hey, God’s Got It Under Control Department.
Best Proof God Doesn’t Give You More Than You Can Handle
I had a near-miss today.
See, Alice found a dog. A beagle puppy. With no collar and no microchip.
Alice and Jake are remodeling. They can’t take in a new dog.
I begrudgingly told her to call me if the puppy’s parents didn’t turn up. Then, I found myself rationalizing it during various meetings today. Foxie Doxie goes with the flow. And Lil’ Frankfurter? He weighs seven whole pounds – he’s really more of an overgrown gerbil than a dog. It would be the morally responsible thing to do to take in this dog. And having three dogs isn’t like having 27 cats. I could, in theory, still date.
And then? Then, Alice found the puppy’s parents.
Best Proof God Has a Wicked Sense of Humor
So, sometimes I pray for patience, right?
At the end of a long day, I spent my evening at the meeting of a philanthropy. I listened politely to the woman who gave a meandering report during which she corrected herself, backtracked and finally admitted she didn’t know what she was talking about. I just wanted to go home and put on my pajamas. But instead, I listened attentively. And I managed not to roll my eyes later when a woman proudly exclaimed that she is taking a computer class. She had just one question for the group: What’s a blog? And does it have anything to do with “The Internet?”
The ensuing explanation took a mere 13 minutes and included directions on how to connect to this mythical “The Internet.”
Oh, God. You are soooooo funnnnnnneeeeeeee.
