Green Light Morning


Ever have one of those days when you are on track to be to work on time, not a minute early, then it seemed like every intersection had a red light? That has happened to me more often than I want to remember.

This morning things were different. I left the house a few minutes earlier than usual and only one light was red and at that intersection I was turning right anyhow. The rest of the lights were green. That too long drive I make five days a week was smoother than usual today.

Green light days are one of life's little bonuses. It's unexpected and never guaranteed. Those are days when everything goes smoother than anticipated, maybe a day when you get an unexpected surprise, a phone call or a visitor. Or the mailman might bring something you don't expect. Just remember to thank God when you have one of these days, as they don't come often enough.

If you would wait until all the lights were green before you left home, you would never go anywhere.

I wish everyone would have more green light days than usual. But enjoy them when you have them.

I am always amazed when things go smoothly. It is something to stop, think about, and appreciate, when it does happen.

Sometimes I think that when I'm being stopped by every possible red light in town, it's a prevention of something awful ahead so I try to be patient. God has a way of slowing us down when need be.

what a great post, i love green light days. I notice the more i surrender my will and just let my days happen as they are I have more and more green light days. It has been said more than once that no matter what the question, or problem is in life, the answer always begins with Surrender and Acceptance.

My day today was pretty "green light" too. It seems that more often than not, Mondays for me are "yellow light" days- so slooowww that I'm almost at a standstill.

Even though this is far from the point you were making - I've found that if you can get up to 40mph you can go through all green lights - I wish you many more green light days!
