This gave me a chance to be still for about 10 minutes, absorbing the sunlight, admiring the wispy clouds in the pale blue sky, and enjoying the birds' songs. This helped me understand that missing something that I really want isn't necessarily a bad thing. If I had been there on time for the first bus, then I would have missed the opportunity to spend time wondering at God's glorious creation. The best part? I still made it to class early. :)
All this to say that, if something happens that isn't in our plan, God can use that to make us aware of the beauty in our situation, and He cares enough to still get us where we need to be.
