Couple days ago, I was standing behind an older Asian lady in Target's checkout line and simply watched as she bought clothes on the cheap with wads of ones. I knew I should have bought the shirt she couldn't for her, I knew that feeling was you, but I hemmed, hawed, and hesitated in my mind.

I let myself waffle against the vague sense I had of my finances after losing internet made it harder for me to keep up on them, against my nervousness over having to pay for a replacement vehicle, and against my shyness. I mean, if it had really mattered, I could have forgone the anxiety binge purchase I was making then.

I let the moment pass over less than silly excuses, sad nothings really, and now I don't know what plans of yours I screwed up because I botched that crossroad in time.

I should have trusted you, I should have had faith. Thinking about it, I could even have been clever by returning her thanks with 'God blesses you' and left it at that.

But no, I froze on the inside instead.

This I confess.

We all have our moments....


Mine came two weeks ago, as I was late for church.  I snuck in the back and spotted an empty seat.  Thinking nothing of it, I ended up sitting next to an elderly woman who probably had the worst knees and hips and back in the church.  I don't know how much unnessary pain I caused her, but I still feel a little guilty because of it:  and at a catholic service too.  Stand, sit, stand sit, stand, sit, stand shake hands, sit, kneel..



"The safest place for me to be is in the center of God's will, and if that's in the line of fire, that's where I'll be."
