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'"


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!

  1. Amen! Love you, Mrs. Lora!! I think God is just saying to you it's about to be a JOY ride and you better buckle up. "For from of old no one has heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides You, Who works and shows Himself active on behalf of him who [earnestly] waits for Him." Isaiah 64:4


Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
