Best Laid Plans
By: Rick Boxx
March 14, 2012

Knowing it would be my last Spring Break, I convinced two friends to sign up for an inexpensive week in Daytona Beach. The day of our departure, brought 10 inches of snow.

Instead of the Greyhound Bus that had been advertised on the bulletin board flyer, we loaded onto a yellow School Bus, with no bathroom, and the aisle full of luggage and a keg of beer.

Six agonizing hours later, we limped into our first stop with plan B in mind. We borrowed my roommate’s parent’s car, and arrived in Daytona Beach two days earlier than the School Bus. We saved ourselves from a miserable trip.

Proverbs 16:9 teaches, “In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.”

Sometimes our best laid plans need adjusting.
