On occasion, like when I’m on holiday like now, I leave things until the last minute and, just sometimes, it actually works in your favour.
A few years back, I had a great page-a-day daily planner that had daily Scripture verses, devotional thoughts and a whole bunch more stuff (even a reading plan) bound up in a neat book-sized leather-look cover. Each year since then I have tried in vain to find the same planner, as I liked the layout, appreciated the quality of the binding and enjoyed using the planner.
Today, with a little Christmas gift money in my wallet, I felt a prompting to drop in to a bookstore I have been to once before rather than my regular one run by my friend Bogdan. No sooner do I walk through the door than I see two copies of a planner sitting on the table by the door. With a smile I realise that not only is this the planner I have been looking for but also that the store is, in all likelihood, the place I bought the original one three years ago!
Needless to say, I heeded the prompting and took a copy of the planner to the counter. You can imagine the smile on my face when I was told that it was on discount too!
Funny how things work out, eh?
