BANG! BANG! BANG! I was woken from a sound sleep last night. The house was dark. I put on my robe, and moved cautiously to the front door, phone in hand. It was a woman who I have never met, stating that her car was stuck at the end of my driveway, and that she would have it moved in the morning. She lived very close to our home, and would walk to her home. "Sorrry to bother you so late," she said. Then she disappeared into the darkness.
At first I was frustrated for being taken out of a deep sleep, but then I stopped myself. When I first heard the knock, I thought about my family's safety and health. No one was seriously hurt. No one died. All was well. My neighbor wasn't hurt. Her car was fine. Thank you Lord for waking me up and reminding me of how good things are in my life.
