Year of Miracles #8

Last week my brother-in-law was unable to find his keys when it was time to leave for work. His wife was already gone, as were his sons, and he was unable to contact any of them to ask if they knew about his keys. And since they have recently moved to a new neighborhood, he did not feel comfortable asking for a ride from a neighbor. So, after thoroughly searching, he set out with his laptop in his briefcase to walk the eight miles to work. After about a mile a kind construction worker stopped and picked him up and took him about halfway and then dropped him off. After walking another half mile, another man stopped to ask if he needed a ride and then took him the last few miles to get to work. He arrived safely (despite the heat) and was very grateful for the kindness of strangers who miraculously stopped to help him that morning.

It turned out his older son had borrowed the keys and had not yet returned them that morning.

Scripture of the Day: Ephesians 6:4

  1. Oh, that's so nice! Walking 8 miles in work clothes and getting all sweaty cannot be a fun way to start your day! My oldest son went out to scrape the van windows for me on one of our coldest days last winter. He opened the van to get the scraper, then popped the keys in his pocket and scraped until his carpool arrived, then he hopped in and off he went, taking my keys with him! Yikes!
