Painful Providence

My dad works as a tour guide and speaker here in D.C.  Last week he injured his back, and it rendered him immobile for a couple days.  During this time he reluctantly had to decline a couple tours.  Thankfully he’s feeling much better now and is out once again touring with a group of folks.

Well, today he met another tour guide and discovered that she was the substitute who took his place last week.  As it turns out, the group she substituted was in the Holocaust Museum while the shooting took place.  In other words, if my dad hadn’t injured his back he would have been in the museum when the shooting happened.

Makes you wonder how many “setbacks” have protected us from something else…

  1. I think this concept is such a hard, but huge thing to absorb. I’m so thankful God was answering prayers & looking put for your dad. Not only for his healing, but for his protection. God is so good to us and it’s things like this that remind me that we can really trust Him!
