Avalanche and blessings

While attending a clogging competition in Washington for Talise. We started to drive late in the evening so that we could take some time off of our day the next day.  We had been on the road for about an hour and us girls needed a pit stop!  We drove around and around for about 45 minutes.  We had seen a sign of a gas station, but we just couldn't seem to find it.  Finally we arrive at the gas station, only to find a sign on the gas station door "RESTROOMS ARE NOT FOR PUBLIC USE!!"  Knowing that  finding a restroom within the next hour passing thru the mountain pass would be nonexistent, I talked to the attendant who let us use the restroom.  So all is well, and we begin to go over the snowqualmie pass and was stopped for about an hour, due to an avalanche that had crossed the freeway about 45 minutes prior to us being stopped.  When we realized how long it took us to find that restroom we realized we could have been at the very point where the avalanche fell had we not felt the "urge" to stop!! lol  Blessings come in the most mysterious ways and we are grateful!  Then the next day we took a wrong turn and came upon the beautiful Columbia River Temple.  Again, a blessing to see such a place of beauty.  Did we really take a wrong turn?!!  You decide?!!

This will answer what Josh is talking about in his letter listed below this post.
