An Unplanned Session

I had prepared two talks for the retreat as requested but Friday evening, when I was given a schedule, I discovered I was down for the next morning as well. The second talk I had prepared flowed naturally from the first, I thought, so what could I put in the middle that would fit? The topic came to me while we were praying for a woman whose daughter was in Emergency. Pain! I could talk about pain.

I didn't have much time to prepare what I would say. My legs and feet were hurting a lot from standing and I was exhausted. I needed my sleep. So how could I write out what to say? Thankfully, I had my computer with me and, since I copy all I write online into Word documents, I hoped I could harvest a few things and string them together. When I did find them, I was too tired to know whether they worked together or not but I told God it would have to do because it was all I could do.

God was so gracious to me because it all worked out so well.
