After my trip to the hospital the other night, I got thinking how my plans for the next day went by the wayside.
I had to cancel a dermatology appointment I’d been waiting months for. I intended to visit a gal in a nursing home. I wanted to buy jewelry to promote a cause, pretty to look at as a plus.
Proverbs 27:1 (ESV) says, “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.”
I’ve seen that truth portrayed over and over again in my life. It helps if I can stay calm in the midst of unexpected events.
Yesterday my husband and I made plans but when our daughter and her husband asked if they could come over to talk, we rearranged our schedule.
On Thursday I had this thought to check out my planner. When I did I realized it was forty-five minutes past an appointment to be at the auto shop. I called and they said if I got in before the next hour or so, it’d be fine.
When I came in, the mechanic said, “I wondered what was going on, you’ve never not shown up.”
Getting ill early in the week has thrown the whole week off, my perspective on my days and responsibilities are off kilter. I know this too shall pass.
As much as I can know anything.
