How was your day?

Me:God, can I ask you a question?
God:Sure.
Me:Promise you won't get mad?
God:I promise.
Me:Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?
God:What do you mean?
Me:Well, I woke up late.
God:Yes.
Me:My car took forever to start.
God:Okay.
Me:At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.
God:Hmmm.
Me:On the way home my phone went dead just as I picked up a call.
God:Okay.
Me:And on top of all that, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massager and relax, but it wouldn't work!  Nothing went right today!  Why did you do that?
God:Well, let me see.  The Death Angel was at your bed this morning and I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life.  I let you sleep through that.
Me:(humbled): OH...
God:I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
Me:(ashamed) Oh ...
God:The person who made your first sandwich today was sick and I didn't want you to catch what he has.
I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.
Me:(embarrassed): Ok...
God:Your phone went dead because the person who was calling was going to give false witness about what you said during that call.  I didn't even let you talk to them so that you would be covered.
Me:(softly) I see, God.
God:Oh, and that foot massager had a short that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight.  I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.
Me:I'm sorry God.
God:Don't be sorry, just learn to trust me in all things, the good and the bad.
Me:I will trust you.
God:And don't doubt that MY plan for your day is always better than your plan.
Me:I won't, God.  And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything today.
God:You're welcome, child.  It was just another day being your God, and I love looking after my children.
