I ran out about noon today to the supermarket to grab some bread, olive oil and dipping spices that I had promised as a snack for confirmation class and ended up reconnecting with some people I haven't seen for a while. If I had known how much I could get done in the produce section, I would be spending more time there!
WIth a small bottle of orange joice in my hand for someone in the office who thought they might be coming down with the flu, I saw a familiar face. Speaking her name, she recognized me, and we had a great conversation catching up on years of kids, relationships and life. I don't know how long its been since we talked, but I'm guessing around eight years.
Out of the corner of my eye, I then saw someone I haven't seen at church for a while, and have been trying to contact. We got to talk for a few minutes. He shared the usual explanations — basically busy, busy, busy. But, he's been listening to my sermons online each week. Apparently, I'm inspiational.
On my way home I realized I had gotten more done at the grocery store than at any other place this week. I truly appreciate the divine appointments schduled for me today.
