At 6:00 Friday night a friend called asking if he could stay overnight. No brainer! This morning we joined together for breakfast and a round of talking that circled our friendship, church issues and things that make for fun with a fellow traveler on the road of life.
At around 10:00 Friday night my sister called for a ride from Kindersley to Rosetown. Today we delivered her car to her in Rosetown. There are unexpected times when family gets together – not planned but plugging a hole where the last few weeks have not allowed us to be in contact.
At 2:00 today I attended a funeral for a minister in our town. He had died of a heart attack this past week. Just barely a few years older than I! The funeral was from a tradition other than my denominational affiliation. I sat reminiscing on God, tradition, funeral attire and the church.
And now, I’ve just put some final touches on a sermon that was completed in fits and starts this week. Monday will be a funeral for a contact I had made a few years ago. He was not a church member but his wife requested my participation. Sometimes the beginning of spiritual awakenings comes through the small things. I pray in that direction.
May God bless your evening with a sense of his presence and an understanding that the unplanned is often God’s plan.
