Running encounters of the special kind

running encounters

I was running along a dirt path, when a car passed me by, honking loudly. I looked up, and saw this guy waving and grinning at me, like a mad man.

'Stupid man!' I mumbled to myself. 'He nearly gave me a heart attack!'

God must be feeling playful today

Then this thought popped into my head: 'God must be feeling playful today,' and just like that, my annoyance disappeared, and I smiled.

Because I like to believe there's a little bit of 'God' in all of us. And assuming this is true, isn't it lovely how you can meet him or her just about everywhere?! It reminds me of this song: 'What if God was one of us?'

What is God was one of us?

Sometimes he's that driver honking loudly at you, sometimes she's two little birds doing a beautiful dance across the tree tops.

So when another car skidded to a halt next to me, and a man leaned out asking: 

'Can you tell me how to get to the nearest MacDonalds?' 

I removed my earphones and explained it to him like I had all the time in the world.

And as I ran along again, I thought to myself: 'I hope that guy is thinking: 

'God sure was friendly today! And a great navigator to boot!'

Heather, if he'd come back with a Big Mac I would have considered him a God.
