The unplanned planner

IMG 0538

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?

  1. you should have bought two whilst they were on offer so you’d have one in hand for next year? You’ve got to think ahead in this game.

    It’s always the small things that make you happiest, isn’t it, mate? 🙂

  3. It is! For all the digital stuff in my life, this planner really suits how I work (I mostly use it for my daily ‘will-do’ lists and odd notes) and offers snippets of wisdom/encouragement, so it was nice to find a copy again.
