Today has been a surreal day, and it’s only just begun. I was driving down I-4 this morning, making good time, when suddenly traffic came to a complete stop. There was a woman in an SUV who had obviously entered the exit ramp, because her car was facing traffic. Everyone waited while she pulled a u-turn and exited the ramp. Thankfully, no one was hurt, because that could have been a lot worse for her.
I should have known it was going to be an interesting day, considering how it started. I didn’t get to sleep until after 1AM, so I was pretty sure I would be in no shape to work out this morning, and sure enough, when my alarm went off at 5:30, I was certain I would not be going. With one eye open, I went through my ritual of checking email on my phone and discovered that someone had left a comment on one of my songs on SingSnap. It was a song by MercyMe called Move.
As you can imagine, I was starting to feel a little convicted, especially since I’d called that song “My theme song for 2012.” But not convicted enough to get out of bed. Then, the final boot to the rear came from, of all places, my Sims game on my iPad. I had closed my eyes again, torn between getting up and going back to sleep, when a small flash of light caught my attention. I opened my eyes and saw there was an alert on my iPad from the Sims game letting me know one of my Sims had woken up and “It’s time to get moving!” I’m not a believer in coincidence, or as the saying goes, “Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.” So, I got up, and I went to work out. I’d like to say that something unexpected happened during my workout which warranted the two promptings this morning, but, while that would be what happens in the movies, in real life I just got a really good workout.
Can’t wait to see what the rest of today holds!
