I keep trying to convince myself I love a certain retail Giant I will refer to as Wally World...I went early this morning to buy a few cleaning items. The produce looked decent so I bought a bag of Clementines as well and decided to buy lowfat, vanilla yogurt as well.
As I reached for the yogurt, a code something was announced over the loud speaker, employees really scrambled and the store was on lock down. For a moment, I thought I do not want to be held hostage in Wally World and then realized the situation was due to a lost or snatched child. A few moments later everything was back to normal.
As the cashier was ringing up my purchases, the fire alarms began sounding...I thought this better be a drill and she better let me pay. (No smoke, no firetrucks - this girl ain't leaving Wally World without her cleaning supplies, Clementines, and yogurt.) Employees dashed out...customers continued to shop, then the voice that reminded me of a school teacher came over the loud speaker, this is a drill, please continue to shop.
I almost made it to the door when the announcement came over the loud speaker, the sprinkler test was about to begin...I ran...wet was not an option this morning.
Hope your mornings began in a more peaceful manner than mine did! I think I will meditate on the following Scriptures:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
