Word-Filled Wednesday 3/18/09

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."

1 Peter 5:6

I rarely go anywhere in the evenings during the week, because I am too tired, or just don't feel like going anywhere, and if I do, it's right after supper.  Last night, I was going to plant some seeds indoors, and decided I had room for some more seeds, and at 7:30, I decided to go to Target.  While there, I decided to see about getting a new battery for my watch, which is something I had been wanting to do, and forgot to do when I was there last.  I'm saying all this to point out God has his own timing for things, and provides for his people. 

While I was looking to see if anyone was working in the jewelry area, I looked at watches.  I felt a bump from behind, and there was a lady in a scooter, apologizing to me, saying the thing doesn't stop right away.  I told her I had to use scooters at stores for awhile because I had surgery on my foot.  She told me she has had lymphoma a few years, and just recently was diagnosed with breast cancer.  She talked a little more, sharing some concerns, then as she started to leave, I asked if I could ask her a question.  I asked her if she's a Christian.  She said she was, and I asked if we could pray.  She said we could, and we held hands, and prayed right there in the jewelry department.  She thanked me, and said that made her feel good.  Right after that, her daughter and grandchildren joined her.  I'm thankful God provided us those few minutes together.
