By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.”
While we were outside working on our wreaths yesterday (see prior post), sirens sounded and a great many emergency vehicles beat a path on the road in front of our house. So unusual and intense it was that my husband got in the car to see what was going on! He returned to say he saw the car flattened on the roadside. While he was gone from the house, a medical helicopter flew over, and I said a silent prayer.
This morning my husband was still on the internet where he found out that an 85 year old woman was the victim of the accident (name being withheld) when he received a text message identifying her. The woman was on the "Home Improvement" list at our church. We were scheduled to help spread some stone/gravel on her driveway this Saturday morning at 8:00. (She didn't attend our church and I didn't know her, but a member of our church had "nominated" her to be served by our willing workers.)
Within the very hour of the fatal accident, a friend and I were making our plans to meet, load a wheelbarrow and rakes, and ride together to join the others on Saturday morning. Needless to say, God got my attention! I'm sobered by the uncertainty of life and the necessity of "doing all the good I can...as SOON as I can!"
Some things just cannot be passed off as "coincidental".
