Beautiful Randomness


Ever notice how random life can be? As someone who thrives on schedules and predictability this randomness can be both maddening and beautiful. Of course, we all know for God nothing is random. Everthing is part of His grand scheme for the universe, for our world, for our lives.

But to us–to me–it’s all very random. It’s interesting that it’s usually not until after some time has passed that the randomness of life falls into order in the rearview mirror. I guess that’s what faith is all about. What we see has haphazard randomness morphs into God’s great order when seen through the lenses of faith.

And that’s why it’s beautiful randomness.

Now, on this topic of all things random. Here’s some random thoughts from my head to yours.

In recent days I’ve had too many people scold me for keeping them in such suspense about this major decision of mine. Let me explain . . . and apologize. My major decision concerned choosing between two job offers that both offered a lot. My day job is as a physical therapist assistant, currently in an outpatient orthopedic private practice. My new job is in the same field with the Visiting Nurse Association. Starting March 23 I’ll be doing my physical therapy thing in people’s homes. It’s new, it’s different, it’s exciting. My apologies to those who thought my decision had something to do with the cancer. I know I kept you all hanging but I had to to honor my current employers (whom I love and hate to leave 😦

Okay, funny story. I dropped my girls off at a party and gave them the lecture about not leaving with anyone or going anywhere with anyone but me. My middle daughter (whose 8) jumped in, “Dad, you know why I’d never go with a stranger?”

“Tell me, Abby.”

“One, I’m too shy. And two, sometimes other people’s cars smell weird.”

Um, you have to know Abby to appreciate that logic.

Scream releases in stores tomorrow and is already getting some good feedback. You can read some reader reviews on the Amazon page. Also, I’ve done several interviews that are starting to show up. Here are two: TitleTrakk.com and The Big Thrill (newsletter of the International Thriller Writers).

    I didn’t intend to scold you for leaving us in suspense. I figured you had your reasons. It just struck me funny. You DO write suspense novels afterall. Congratulations on your new job!

  2. Mike – This sounds great! I have a cousin who did that same type of work and loved it! She turned it into her own business and everything! Now she’s teaching physical therapy at the medical college near her home. It’s a fascinating field! Congrats on the new job!

    Hi Mike -We’ve had some experience with Visiting Nurses, but not with home physical therapists. My Occupational Therapist helped me regain the use of my arm after I broke my elbow. It’s an important job done by caring individuals.Love Abby’s remarks. Kids have a way of getting to the heart of a matter.Blessings,Susan 🙂
