Birds love our oak and palm trees. Therefore we find little white spots on the ground that I try to "side-step." This is what I saw walking with Major outside. Can you spot it?
I walked around it but Major went in to give it a sniff. Taking his cue, I went over to shoo him on.
I took a second look and this is what that spot was.
It was a gorgeous white moth. If you click and enlarge it, he looks like he has feathers on his head. He's all pristine and altogether lovely in among those awful pollen weeds. If I hadn't taken the time to stop and look, I'd've missed him.
And wouldn't you know it, the Lord used this to show me where I did miss an opportunity.
I was leaving a hardware store and in the parking lot walking towards me was a person in baggy, dirty clothes with a baggy old cap. I couldn't tell if it was a man or woman until she spoke.
"Do you have any change?" she asked.
I quickly walked to my car, not answering. There was a YaYa's Chicken Restaurant just a bit down in the same parking lot. I don't like giving out money-not knowing what's it's for-but I should've asked if she was hungry. (I know in today's society we have to be careful, but hubby was with me.)
Why didn't I offer the food? Huh? Why? I might have missed something beautiful, or at the very least fed someone who was hungry. I totally side-stepped her. What if she was an "angel unawares?"
"But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good." I Corinthians 12:7
Father, may I respond to Your Spirit for the good of others. Keep my feet from side-stepping.
