A Do-Over Done

"O God, give me a second chance to be a living link between heaven and earth!" This was how I ended a blog post dated July 9, 2010 and which I named Second Chances, mainly because I was in desperate need of a "do-over" with a fellow I had met beneath an artisan tent some several hours away from my home.
I write today to shout it from the mountain, "GOD IS FAITHFUL!!!" Yes, just as I had posted earlier, I was keeping my eyes open -- for almost 2 years ... looking ... watching. And then I saw him -- once again beneath a tent selling his wares. But this time I knew. I looked him in the eyes. I extended my hand. We exchanged names. And before all was said and done, life was spoken.

This one whom I first saw as someone so different than I had now become a character in my own story and journey ... and I had been given a chance for a do-over. Heaven forbid that I miss it.

Just an ordinary moment...
