God knows our comings and our goings

In August of 2009, I was picking up some items left at a Christian Science summer camp by my granddaughter. She had flown home to Florida, and didn’t have room in her suitcase for all of her bedding.

I had just spoken to the person in charge of the office at the camp, and thanked her for taking care of some of the arrangements for my grandaughter’s trip home.

She said my granddaughter had been a little nervous about traveling alone, but that they had talked about God knowing her “comings and her goings”.

I went to the car to wait for my husband to return from the camp office, so we could start the drive home to Springdale. It was very warm and I was holding the car door open with my foot resting on the edge of the door. I was thinking of the love expressed to my granddaughter and all the children at camp. I was feeling very grateful.

Suddenly a gust of wind came up and caught the heavy car door and slammed it closed on my toes. The door didn’t close all the way and I pushed it back open as fast as I could.

I was wearing a pair of open toe shoes, and for a minute I thought, “this is going to be trouble”.

But right then I remembered the quote from the Bible, that had been shared with my granddaughter.

As this beautiful thought, God knows MY comings and MY goings, took over my thinking, the pain just faded away. When I looked at my toes, there was not a mark on them.

I was grateful for the angel message that had been shared with me. It was my protection.
