Almost Meeting Jesus Face to Face

Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love. -1 Corinthians 13:12-13.

Well...I almost knew everything completely this morning and saw Jesus face to face. This guy came flying out of his driveway this morning and was making a right hand turn on to F Street. He only looked to his left to see if anybody was coming. I was on his right. I don't know if it was my last minute prayer, God not being through with me yet, my muscle memory from my two races as a 3000 meter steeplechaser nearly 18 years ago in college, or just plain luck. Whatever it is, I'm just glad to be able to tell the story. My left achilles is a little sore from jumping over the driver's little sports car.

I'll live the rest of the day as a gift - probably should have been doing that anyway.
