Plan B

I should have known better.
I ALWAYS have a Plan B.
Go hiking: plan for rain or a sprained ankle.
Have company: plan two entrees and two desserts, just in case they hate lasagna or pie.
Teacher suggests ten books in your bibliography: have fifteen.
Stash a gallon of water and a warm blanket in the trunk of the car, just in case.

I took my big bag. Even paid the twenty-five dollars to check it at DIA. (That 's a whole 'nother blog)
I was thinking San Diego: sunshine, beaches, LaJolla shopping, hot-tub chats with my daughter.
First day was cool, overcast, threatening rain.
Rained almost the whole week.
Had to buy a sweater. Stuck indoors till Saturday when we finally got out to Coronado for a stroll and lunch on the terrace at Terrazzo Italianio.
I was not prepared for the cool, rainy weather.
Does life ever catch you unprepared?
Don't even answer; I know what you'll say.

God's never unprepared.
He even had a plan B for when we sinned.
Actually it was PLAN A. He already knew we'd fall. "He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world." Ephesians 1:4
God sees every day before it arrives because "in Him was life, and the life was the light of men." John 1:4
He even arrived on this earth equipped for everything He needed to do:preach, heal, die, resurrect, send the Holy Spirit. Matt. 4:23, Matt. 26:2, Matt.28:6.

When you come down to it, we're the only ones who need a plan B.
