Colin's Wise Wednesday - 20th June 2018

Wednesday has arrived so it is once again time to share with you.

As I rounded the corner and headed for home after my morning walk I could see my neighbor a couple of houses away from us in his driveway. The last time I saw him was 3 months earlier at the local shops where he told me the sad news that he had been diagnosed with lung cancer.  We agreed that we must share a cup of coffee soon. I thought about the coffee as I kept walking by. Should I stop and say Hi but then I would get home late and Lyn would be concerned. I continued walking. I should stop and ask how he is doing and have that cup of coffee. I kept on walking albeit slower than before as I was contemplating what I should do. As I got to our front gate my conscience got the better of me and I decided to turn around and backtrack arguing with myself as I did so…. I just don’t have time for this right now.

When I got to his driveway after all my procrastination and arguing with myself he had already disappeared inside. So guess what…I left it.

Our neighbor died 2 weeks ago without us sharing a chat and a cup of coffee.

I am very aware of this missed opportunity. It is too late now but I pray that when God places a needy person in my path again I will step out in love and faith and embrace the opportunity with open arms.

Let’ pray. Father forgive me for passing by opportunities that you place in my path to bring Your loving comfort to those in need. Please God make me more sensitive to the needs of others. Amen.
