Today, I Begin Anew #Weeklies

Week 11/52 #Weeklies


I hurriedly walked out of the church.  The sun was shining beautifully in Santa Fe, NM. 

I saw the man again. He had boxes of books, I supposed, when I came in the church. Now he was busy putting it out. I asked if I could have one. Sure, he said.
Rediscover Jesus by Matthew Kelly. Great! It’s free and I love books! 

You see, I have been on a personal journey this year. It started on January 1st with Mike Dooley’s Infinite Possibilities Project. There on, my mind just couldn’t be stopped! I’ve been doing things I’ve never done before. Well, at least have forgotten to do because of the busyness I allowed myself to get into. 

I believe God is sending me angels to support my endeavors. 

I walked and read the prologue at the same time.  Well, I was excited and wanted to see what the book was about.

Then, I heard the whisper, “Excuse me, Miss”.  I turned, the beggar gestured for me to read the note “Begging for help…” Well, that wasn’t what was written, but that was the message. 

I didn’t have cash so I turned my back and continued to read as I walked away. I didn’t have to explain myself, I justified.

“Have I been carrying Jesus’ work?” says the book. Geez!  

Ok. I should have not just turned my back to the beggar! I could have said, “I am sorry, I didn’t have cash, but God bless you.” 

That could have been better than just turning my back on him. He, made an effort anyway to say, “Excuse me, Miss.” And yet, I didn’t bother. 

I closed the book, looked up and said, “Thank you for the lesson, Jesus”. 

God has just invited me to a new beginning.
