The plan was that he would drop a friend off, maybe work on his lesson for Church tomorrow, then come back to kiss me good-night.

If we'd followed that plan, his friend wouldn't get the talk he needed.

If we'd followed that plan, I wouldn't have gotten on the internet and learned of an old friend's family loss, and written them a quick e-mail of whatever comfort I could think of.

If we'd followed that plan, neither of us would have been where we needed to be, when we needed to be.

Thanks to the powers that be...I'm grateful that the Lord occasionally rearranges the universe so that the needs of some of His children can be met in ways that defy coincidence. It's been happening a lot lately, and tonight I'm humbled by it.
