Topic: The Lord Works in Mysterious Ways...


WHEN I JOINED the U.S. Air Force, it was the first time I had ever flown in an airplane. We were corralled off the planes and onto buses. There must have been 50 scared young women on my bus. Disembarking at our living quarters, we were given our luggage and told to stand at attention. A sergeant came out, yelled, "Pick up your bags!" and then yelled to set them back down. This cycle was repeated for about ten minutes. Finally he looked at me and said, "Why couldn't the rest of you have been as smart as this young lady?" I stood there with only my purse over my shoulder and no luggage. For the first and only time, I silently thanked the airline for losing my 60-pound bag filled with everything but the kitchen sink.

Wasn't me -- you'll have to track down SrA Anderson and ask her.

When I joined the Marines I had a wad of cash in one pocket and a notepad with phone numbers and a pen in the other.

I think I'd be thankful, too. Still a good one.
