"Just Askin'"

I received this in an email the other day and just read it.  I felt it went so well with my post from the other day, and it was definitely something I needed to read!  Enjoy the reminder!
  Me: God, can I ask you a question?                                       
  God: Sure.                                                               
  Me: Promise you won't get mad.                                           
  God: I promise.                                                          
  Me: Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?                    
  God: What do you mean?                                                   
  Me: Well, I woke up late.                                                
  God: Yes.                                                                
  Me: My car took forever to start.                                        
  God: Okay.                                                               
  Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had
to wait.              
  God: Huummm.                                                             
  Me: On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked
  up a call.     
  God: All right.                                                          
  Me: And on top of it all, when I got home I just wanted to soak
  my feet in my new foot massager and relax, but it wouldn't work!!!
  Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?                                        
  God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning
 and I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life.
 I let you sleep through that.                                                      
  Me: (humbled): OH...                                                     
  GOD: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver
  on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.                   
  Me: (ashamed)                                                            
  God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick
  and I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't
  afford to miss work.                                                                    
  Me: (embarrassed): Ok...                                                 
  God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling
  was going to give false information, I didn't even let   you talk to
  them so you would be covered.                                
  Me: (softly) I see God.                                                  
  God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going
  to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you        
  wanted to be in the dark.                                                          
  Me: I'm sorry God.                                                       
  God: Don't be sorry, just learn to trust all things, the good  
  and the bad.                                                             
  Me: I will trust you.                                                    
  God: And don't doubt that my plan for your day is always better than
  your  plan.                                                                    
  Me: I won't God.  And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything  
  God: You're welcome child. It was just another day being your God, and I love looking    after my children.
