Have you ever rushed out the door, already late, only to get lost in a maze of construction detours?
That was my story yesterday around 9 a.m. when I dashed to St. Mary Catholic Church’s Tileston Social Outreach to serve as a “brave Christian.”
Obstacles sprang up on my way: one roadblock, two detours, three dead-ends.
I said a quick prayer:
“Please God, wrap me in Divine Protection and deliver me at my final destination with perfect timing.”
I arrived 23 minutes late.
I greeted everybody and went to the back room to sort out clothes. I’d been there for five minutes when Sister Mary Isaac Koenig, Tileston Social Outreach Director, walked in with a camera.
“I’m taking pictures for our volunteer book,” she said with a bright smile.
I was second in line.
My prayer had been answered, with perfect timing!
