Met a friend from India today..

I was changing letters in our church's marquee today and noticed an older gentleman walking along the sidewalk.  He was looking up at the sky and not in a particular hurry.  I had an extra Bible in the truck and wondered if I should chat with him.  He kept walking and I kept working.

Probably an hour later, I was leaving the church and guess who was walking by again.  Yep.  The same elderly man.  I figure this is too much of a coincidence and likely God is orchestrating circumstance.  I walked  out to chat.  He is 76 years old and is from India.  He has been in America for 7 months.  His accent is very thick. We chatted about things and I mentioned he looked young for 76.  

He shared with me that only God knows when He will take us home.  I commented that was true and it was very important we do all we can to enjoy each day that God gives us.  I asked if I could give him my Bible.  He graciously accepted and asked me to write my name in it.  I welcomed him to America and wished him the best.

Sometimes, it is the little things that mean the most….

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
