Daily Reflections


We reacted more strongly to frustrations than normal people.

Impatience with other people is one of my principal failings.
Following a slow car in a no-passing lane, or waiting in a
restaurant for the check, drives me to distraction. Before I
give God a chance to slow me down, I explode, and that’s what
I call being quicker than God. That repeated experience gave
me an idea. I thought if I could look down on these events
from God’s point of view, I might better control my feelings
and behavior. I tried it and when I encountered the next slow
driver, I levitated and looked down on the other car and upon
myself. I saw an elderly couple driving along, happily chatting
about their grandchildren. They were followed by me–bug eyed
and red of face–who had no time schedule to meet anyway. I
looked so silly that I dropped back into reality and slowed down.
Seeing things from God’s angle of vision can be very relaxing.
