I just LOVE how God can throw in a zinger occasionally-----JUST when I need a good laugh! I went to the attorney's office this afternoon---somber business--ending a 40 year marriage. The bright side of my visit was a hug and great visit with a sweet Episcopalian friend that works there. I would have NEVER met her---had it not been for going back to work after being left alone 2 years ago. What a sweet gift and blessing our business association and then friendship has been.
I get the business taken care of and go to tutor at one of the Elementary schools---so that keeps me busy for a while. I come to Helen's and the house is empty and the ominous papers are in my hand. Could have been a very bad moment as I read over them. THEN---in steps God----with a moment of levity and laughter. The following is the text that I received and my response:
Friend from Attorney's Office--"Did you leave your sunglasses here?" (I have 2 pair just alike since I have been known to leave glasses places)
Me---"Are they white sport glasses?"
Friend--"No they are black and say 'Joy Ride'"
INSERT ME CRACKING UP
Me--"No 'Joy Rides' lately---UNFORTUNATELY---must be some other lucky person's!!"
SO next time you see me--expect Black "Joy Rides"----I CAN live vicariously!
