I’d like to wish my friends, neighbors, and any relatives that happen to read this, a very Happy Easter. It is especially meanful to me.this during this coronavirus crisis. I just finnished watching Franklin Graham’s Easter Message, and was inspired to write.
With prayers we will over come this. I, myself, haven’t been a very good church goer. But I still love the Lord and believe in Him.
When I was a young ten-year old, I had a paper route that took me out to the edge of town. I had to get up at 3:30 in the morning. I rode my bicycle and there was one area where there it was nearly no houses, and in my imagination I would hear strange noises in the darkness. Each time I would pray to the Lord, and promise anything if he would just get me through that half-mile.
As a recruit in basic training, I would read my Gideon’s bible each night, asking Him for help to get me through each grueling day.
Later when I was assigned to the Air Force Survival School at Stead AFB in Reno, Nevada, I found that I had a guardian angel with me. One day, I was dead broke, no money and was sitting in the dayroom, when a fellow airman came in and sat down beside. My pay at the time was 37.60 per month. My friend was a very religious person, and he tried to console me. He suggested that we walk in to town and he would buy me a cup of coffee. We were in off-base housing on the grounds of the University of Nevada. A favorite place of mine was Tiny’s Waffle House, just inside the famous arch, on the right side of the street.
We stopped in there. We sat and this friend, I don’t remember his name, kept telling me that I shouldn’t worry, that the Lord works in mysterious ways. When we went to leave and he was paying the bill, I had my hand in my pocked, and lo and behold I found a dime way down in the bottom. On a whim, I put it in the usual slot machine next to the cash register, where you could find them in all of the business in town. A miracle occured. I struck a jackpot for 20.00, more than enough to get me through the month. Yes, He works in mysterious ways, indeed.
On another ocassion after Ann and I were married and were assigned to San Angelo, we were taking trip to Waco. At one point, and a highway junction, I suddenly found myself in the wrong lane facing the oncoming traffic. A car was coming right at us. All of a sudden my steering wheel was yanked to the right, as the oncoming driver drove to his right. We missed each other my mere inches. I had to pull off the road and wait to get my wits back I know I had divine help turning that wheel.
There are many more experience of my guardian angel stepping in for me when needed, but I would need another page to tell you them all.
Of course, our marriage was a beautiful story of the Lord bringing Ann and I together. It is unbelievable and you can read it for yourself Here if you are interested.
So I know the Lord is always watching over me and Ann.
I hope you enjoyed this and gave you some inspiration.
HAPPY EASTER TO ALL.
