A Nickel

Day 8

Monday. April 13, 2015

Quinton, VA

I freely confess that Monday was yet another day of finishing all tha many things I had left undone, one of which was my taxes.   Gethsemani called me first thing in morning to confirm my room reservation.  That made my decision to stay home and get caught-up easy.  I told them I was coming but I would be arriving on Tuesday.  So I stayed home to wash clothes, pay bills, finish my correspondence and do my taxes. I had wanted to get an oil change before I traveled.  I called Jim and Scott’s and Jim told me to come on they could squeeze me in. So I went to shop and waited.  While I was there I had the most delightful conversation with a man who like me was waiting for an oil change.  When he left Jim told he was 95.  I couldn’t believe it.   He had more vigor than I did and I would have only guessed him to be in his 70’s.  Our  chat was a nice way to pass the time and helped to slow me down.

As I was leaving the shop, Jim handed me a nickel and said, “Vallerie, I want you to have this nickel to remind you that I will be praying for you every day while your away.”  What a gift!   I felt like I had been given pure gold and in a since I was for there is no greater gift we can give one another than to pray for each other.

I count it all joy,

Pastor Vallerie
