I proceeded then to my doctor visit. There were a couple of skin biopsies that had to be done so the nurse shot me with novocaine (or the like) to numb the spots and then both her and the doctor disappeared while the drug took effect. I am then sitting alone in the room when my phone flashes with a tornado alert: "TORNADO WARNING IN YOUR AREA! TAKE COVER IMMEDIATELY!"
Here I am sitting in a medical room all alone without my shirt on and shot with novocaine! What if everyone had taken cover and I was forgotten in this room??? LOL That was the thought that crossed my mind. The doctor and nurse eventually returned and they were unaware of the tornado warning? Yes.
With procedures done I left for home and then drove in severe tornado-like weather for several miles...pouring rain, high winds, no visibility, 40 mph (if that) before finally emerging on the other side of the storm front. From then on it was a quiet drive home...but to the east I could see the black clouds and lightning as the storm moved on.
Later on I learned that there had been a tornado that hit a trailer park and had torn through the surrounding area. Sadly there was one fatality.
All of this left me rather tired last night. I was in bed by 9pm and slept soundly. Today we only have a steady spring rain falling...and the trees, shrubs, flowers, and grass are thriving.
Today's Daily Word that really was "spot on" with me: "I trust that God will take me where I need to go. I release any need to control life’s conditions. I let go with ease and let divine order design my life." The whole lesson and particularly this phrase reaffirms to me that right now I am where I need to be and know beyond a doubt that all will be well. It is with gratitude in my heart that I "Let go and let God."
