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….
