Lost Wallet. Found Faith.

Someone once told me, “If you lose a piece of jewelry – it’s meant for someone else.”
Thank goodness the same doesn’t apply to wallets.

I lost mine last week. It fell out my pocket while leaving the supermarket. I immediately retraced my steps, but it was nowhere to be found.

I didn’t cancel my credit card (I only carry one), or spend hours at the DMV for license replacement ( live in Los Angeles where there’s traffic and lots of people).

My phone ringer is always on silent as this is my way to manage distractions.

I switched my ringer from “silent” to “on” and waited…
and waited…
and waited…

I carried on with life as usual and I resisted all worry. 

After 48 hours I began to wonder if my faith had run its course.

I thought, “What’s taking THEM so long? THEY’VE got my number because my business card is in the wallet. Besides, I returned two wallets last year.

Does that count? Is anyone keeping score?”

Finally a postal worker rang me. She had my wallet. We met the following morning as I was on my way to LAX to fly out. I was seriously confident.

Everything was in tact except for $40 bucks in cash.

Do what you can to worry less and allow faith to save the day.

Life doesn’t always work out exactly as we want, but remaining faith-filled and optimistic will sometimes allow the pieces of life to come together.


“Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe.” ~ Saint Augustine
