Foul Ball

I am notorious for being a klutz.  If accidents were looking, they’d find me. I am not kidding!  Let me just list some of the crazy things that have happened to me in the past month…

  • I hit a curb and blew out a tire
  • I tripped on the sidewalk outside my classroom and fell
  • I cut my hand while slicing onions
  • I broke a favorite coffee mug
  • I burned cookies—three times!
  • I burned my forehead with the straightener
That’s just what I can remember, but I am sure that there were more!  The most recent incident was at the ball park last week.  I went to my son’s baseball game and was walking toward the field when my phone rang.  I pulled it out of my back pocket and looked to see who was calling.  Since it was my husband, I answered.  As I put the phone to my ear, I heard what seemed like the whole ball field yelling “Heads Up!”  Those words always startle me, so I looked up to see if I could locate the ball.  Just about that time, that little white ball hit the ground in front of my feet.

Although it seems that I have many accidents and close calls, I completely believe that God is actively protecting me.  There are just too many times where I’ve walked away from accidents without a scratch.

So, the GodSTOP?  Jehovah Ro’i (the Lord, my Shepherd), Thank You for what could have happened, but didn’t, because of your protection and great grace!
