Out of the Blue

In explaining the Friday night mishap I missed mentioning yesterday being the 65th anniversary of the launch of the D-Day invasion. I just saw a special on the invasion of Omaha beach, and in spite of all I thought I new about the Battle of Normandy, I was positively staggered by the enormous price paid to storm the beach. That special also provided an education on the way the invasion's success turned out to rely on a lucky turn of events that placed a group of Rangers in the wrong place at the right time, that ended up saving the day. Amazing stuff.

What you call luck is the LORD's divine intervention. He alone understands the details of everything and how even the smalest "change" can bring world wide impact.
