Who Are You Walking Past?

I was running later than normal this morning when I went down to the post office to check for mail. As I walked along the pavement a young lady was walking towards me, her head down, reading the book in her hands. She must have just come off the train – there was a fair bit of foot traffic around. I don’t know why I was watching this lady but as she got closer, I noticed the book was moving up and down in her hands with the movement of her walking. And in a flash, as the book moved up momentarily, I saw the cover of her book and my heart jumped! The book was mine – “Worth More Than Rubies“.

I stopped and watched her as she moved further down the road away from me, wondering if she even realised she had just walked past the author. Probably not. How cool was that? Definitely a God-incident in my books!
