Practice what I preach

Recently I was in a nearby town at a jewelry shop where I was having  some custom earrings made.  The jeweler said I would have to prepay them and they would be ready in a week.  I wasn’t thrilled about paying for them initially.    The week past and I called him since I had heard nothing.  He seemed in overwhelm and said they were extremely busy and behind schedule.  His frustration was apparent and I reacted rather than responded.  We had some words and I hung up slightly irritated.  I began thinking about the blogs I had been posting and realized I should reread them, which I did and prayed to see the truth about this young man.

Last night, which was Sunday night, he called to tell me he was sending my earrings and he had made a pendant to go with them that he was enclosing.    Then he apologized profusely and I gratefully accepted and told him I should have been kinder myself.

Psalm 139:23-24 reads “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.  See if there is any offensive  way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
