I realised after searching high and low, that my old faithful iPod shuffle had been stolen from my car last week. It was my own silly fault – I left the doors unlocked. Not much of a get for them – it can’t be worth much and the only things I had on there were my Portuguese lessons and a sermon on Song of Songs. Who knows, maybe it will work out for the best and the thief will learn another language and find out about Jesus! Still, it was a bit of a bummer.
Then today… someone “anonymously” dropped off a brand spanking new blue shuffle to help me out with my language learning. Wow! I just feel so blessed and loved and encouraged and humbled and thankful – for the gift and the thoughtfulness and to know that we are not journeying alone.
