Emily Works In Mysterous Ways

As the saying goes, "God works in mysterious ways." It's supposed to be a way to get you to see some sort of silver lining or good side of a bad thing that happens to you.

My question is: why does he get to do that? None of the REST of us get to work in mysterious ways.

Just once, when one of my too-many bosses asks me why I made a certain judgment call, I'd like to say: "Be patient. Emily works in mysterious ways."

If I said that, I'd surely be fired. And go to hell. Not sure which one is worse.

You do work in mysterious ways. :}

I think you have to toss in a "There, there now..." before adding the rest of your myserious ways remark. Or say it while standing on a mountain or really cluttered desk. Then lower your head. Maybe give it a shot and let me know how it works!

On a mountain would be AWESOME! Especially if the wind was blowing in my hair, and the woodland creatures were coming out to meet me, ala Snow White
