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
