1. Lisa, thank you for that story. I feel like that is the “Word” of the week – and fits particularly well with the readings from Philippians 2.
    ‘Look not for ways to best meet your selfish and vain ambition, but in humility, look to the needs of others…’
    ‘Consider Christ, who being in very likeness God, emptied himself; being found in the likeness of man, humbled himself – even to death on the cross…’
    ‘Do everything without grumbling or questioning…’

    UGH. Oh my – there I am grumbling again. :) I have grumbled pretty consistently this week against my “needy” students. GAH. Now that I look at the verses I just listed here, I’m even more convicted. I am so thankful for the Holy Spirit’s presence in our lives to NOT leave us as ‘contradictory Catholics.’ :)

  2. The Lord truly works in mysterious ways. Aside from conversing with the police officer, there could have been other subtle reasons e.g. giving you a reason to write, a story to tell, a message to spread about the car and it’s mechanisms being faulty. But, it seems it was definitely an interesting experience and thank God no one was hurt.
