Someone I know (a missionary to China) once said that when you are traveling down God's path it sometimes looks like it is going all over the place, but when you stop and look back it is a straight line...
Who would have guessed... 10 1/2 years ago while working on an airplane, I slipped and broke my leg...badly! My first reaction while lying on the hanger floor (after looking down and seeing my foot pointing in the wrong direction) was to look up through the wing of the airplane and say to God "Well I guess this day's not going the way I thought it was going to, so whatever the adventure is, I'm ready for it."
So the ambulance came and they took me to Loma Linda Hospital where I spent very many hours waiting until I met this wonderful Christian surgeon who took very good care of me.
The same hospital I had two surgeries and three stays at...
This lead to an endless stream of appointments, which, of course, meant hours and hours in waiting rooms. So Candy brought her puppet to entertain the children in the waiting room. She was quite a hit. My doctor told her she should volunteer over at Child Life at Loma Linda Children's Hospital. She said "Huh?" So he explained it, and she went and signed up. (Same hospital building, different wing.)
Who would have guessed... that she worked there helping children cope with the whole hospital experience. Spending countless hours on the Peds unit. The very place that 10 1/2 years later our granddaughter is at this very moment. All because of my broken leg. A full circle... (And, yes Race, a full circle can be a straight line!)
Did God know this ten years ago? You betcha!!
