Ever done anything crazy
And then been very glad you did?
Ever thought about doing something crazy
And later wondered if you should have?
That was me today.
I was driving home from the grocery store
(On the back streets
Because of construction on my usual route)
When I saw a young woman
Sitting on the backsteps
Of what I assume is her house.
Her chin was resting on her hand
And she looked sad.
I really wanted to stop
And tell her that Someone cared.
But I didn’t.
It doesn’t matter that
Most people wouldn’t even have considered it.
But didn’t act.
This is the Year of Encouragement.
I must be willing to do crazy things
From time to time.
I have a Gift to give
And I must never ever hoard it.
Maybe next time
I’ll just let the ice cream
Get a little soft.
I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest (Psalm 55:6 NIV).
