Day 269, September 30

A few weeks ago, I wrote about life's  Plan Bs.  A dear friend shared this poem with me which says it so much better than I could ever attempt to:
Life is All About How you Handle Plan B

Plan A is always my first choice.
You know, the one where
Everything works out to be
Happily ever-after.
But more often than not,
I find myself dealing with
The upside-down, inside-out version --
Where nothing goes as it should.
It's at this point that the real
Test of my character comes in…
Do I sink, or do I swim?
Do I wallow in self-pity and play the victim,
Or simply shift gears
And make the best of the situation?
The choice is all mine...
Life is all about how you handle Plan B.

This I know for sure:  the Lord's  hand is in all our plans, should we choose to acknowledge it.
