It's all a matter of perspective

A woman was at work when she received a phone call that her small daughter was very sick with a fever. She left her work and stopped by the pharmacy to get some medication.
She got back to her car and found that she had locked her keys in the car. She didn't know what to do, so she called home and told the baby sitter what had happened. The baby sitter told her that the fever was getting worse. She said,
'You might find a coat hanger and use that to open the door.'
The woman looked around and found an old rusty coat hanger that had been left on the ground, possibly by someone else who at some time had locked their keys in their car. She looked at the hanger and said,
'I don't know how to use this.'
She bowed her head and asked God to send her help. Within five minutes a beat up old motorcycle pulled up, with a dirty, greasy, bearded man who was wearing an old biker skull rag on his head.
The woman thought, 'This is what you sent to help me?'
But, she was desperate, so she was also very thankful.
The man got off of his cycle and asked if he could help. She said,
'Yes, my daughter Is very sick. I stopped to get her some medication and I locked my keys in my car. I must get home to her. Please, can you use this hanger to unlock my car?
He said, 'Sure.'
He walked over to the car, and in less than a minute the car was opened
She hugged the man and through her tears she said,
'Thank You So Much! You are a very nice man.'
The man replied, 'Lady, I am not a nice man. I just got out of prison today. I was in prison for car theft and have only been out for about an hour.'
The woman hugged the man again and with sobbing tears cried out loud,

'Oh, Thank you God! You even sent me a professional!'
Is - GOD GOOD - or what!?

Also, my Sam has started a blog... go show her some love.

hey the link to Sam's blog doesn't work. and WOW 17 moves, you are the only one I know that tops us! We lived in a cottage with 6 sets of bunk beds, we lived in a place that did not allow children, we house-sat a place and one, we lived there for 3 months, painted, fixed it up and they asked us to move so they could use it for something else, well, 2 months after we moved, the house burned down, so much for complaining about moving!

This is awesome! How often does God send us answers but we are too blind and faithless to see them? Instead, we see the "thief."
