Re: what i'm up to

On my way to Houston. Can no longer drive. Going to sleep in a rest area. It’s well lit.

There are places here designated for just such a thing. However, this area of the site is called "The Fellowship Hall", meaning the place where brethren get together and chat about whatever they want to chat about, like in real life. What you are looking for is either in the section called Deep Waters, or in the Debate portion of the forum.

Eight weeks ago, my left knee basically failed. It was the resurgence of an injury I received in college in 1984. Rigorous exercise, including hiking, is a large part of the way I keep stress from consuming me. During this time I worked hard around my graduate studies to finish sub-teacher training for the county I live in. Even though I have 12 years sub experience in other counties, the county I moved to last year still requires substantial training. Three weeks ago I was forced to call in sick on my very first day of work because I came down with the shingles. The doctor attributed my shingles to stress. Without exercise, I've had no way to relive stress. So here I am about to enter into Summer break having made no money, and with a bum knee that will require surgery and prevents me from working on my feet. To say I was depressed would be an understatement.

But something happened this past Friday that made me understand how God sometimes uses seeming setbacks to protect us from greater danger. The very high school where I had signed up to work had a school shooting (see link). I have to assume that God was keeping me from a dangerous situation and possible bodily harm. Had I been healthy and well, I would have been there as I had already signed up for multiple days including that one! Out of the dozen high schools in my area, the shooting took place at that one. So concerning your lost phone, who knows what danger God may have been keeping you from. Perhaps we'd be reading about the murder of an Uber driver had your phone not been lost.

The bolded has been on my mind since you posted... and more so since there was a search for a serial killer recently in Houston. He was caught. He killed 2 or 3 people. He also shot (wounded) a bus driver very close to wear a friend lives.
I guess I won’t know on this side of glory...

Re: what i'm up to

Another incident. Down here in the Rio Grande Valley a woman received a pickup request off a dark lonely stretch. She freaked because the pickup was down a dirt road in a field.

And another fellow driver received a request to a somewhat desolate area. As he drove in several guys jumped into a truck. Scared him. He turned around. They chased after.,, tried to run him off the road.
