Wednesday in the Word-Be who you say you are!



 Caught on our trail camera!

Do you get bored when driving or riding? First let me say this....I despise to ride. I am worse than any child you will ever see. If it normally takes 3 hours to get to the destination you can take it to the bank that it will take me 4 hours. I think I just have to stop at this store, stop at this rest area and well...you get the picture! I am your worse child....ARE WE THERE YET? 

Coming home from a short hunting trip with my husband I had a 3 hour drive which by the way...took me a little over 4 hours. I had met my husband there so came back alone. MORE STOPS FOR ME! (But I did stop at a Thrift store so time well spent there) Hee-hee! 

I also stopped at a little grocery store to pick up a few things that I needed. This little store is my final stop on all my hunting trips as I always can think of something I need at home that I don't have. Please keep in mind I live in the WOODS...we are not just a mere 5 minutes away from the nearest grocery store. 

As I was walking out of the store I passed a young woman that made eye contact with me and she smiled and said hello. On my way to my vehicle my first thought was...I bet she is a nice person to be so friendly. Her smile was warm and inviting and well, she just looked like a really friendly lady! Then as I was loading my items I thought, "she looks like someone I know". I was having one of those moments debating on whether to go back into the grocery store and hunt her down and risk the chance of her thinking I was "CRA-CRA" and just ask her, "Do I know you? But needless to say that I refrained. 

All the way home I thought about the young woman....Later after getting home I decide to check my email and my Face book messages only to have a private message from a lady that said, Miss Cindy, did you happen to be in Homerville Ga this afternoon? I ALMOST FLIPPED OUT!  

Long story short, I actually did know the young woman but did not know her married name nor that she had moved to this town. We talked back and forth for a while. Now, you may be wondering what does this have to do with Wednesday in the Word....it has a lot to do with it. 

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God— even as I try to please everyone in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.
1 Corinthians 10:31-33 (NIV)
 
Ladies, you never know who you may run into. Be who you are no matter where you are! Even just a glance can make a difference!
 
Hugs and blessings, 
Cindy

Blessings, Cindy! I loved this post - happens to me, too. Never a waste of time in a thrift shop because there is so much scope for the imagination - and perhaps a writing prompt, too! How lovely your deer picture - so close and serene. And, I would be the one to walk up to the familiar stranger and ask if I knew them. I've done that often and am reconnected to old childhood chums. Always something in the eyes that I remember. Blessings to you, milady -
Joy!

Well, I just love this picture and I hope that you have it framed!!! I can't believe you didn't stop her and ask her if you knew her. Knowing you I figured you would have taken her to lunch to catch up! LOL! Connie Royals
