STORIES FROM THE ROAD


APR 23, 1994

FOUND MONEY

My heart was still pumping after the encouter with a car in downtown Mystic, CT. I was riding through the downtown area towards the drawbridge across the mouth of the Whitford River. While I was passing this one car, the driver opened the driver's side door. I swerved to get out of it's way but the right side of my handlebar got clipped and I hit the pavement. I didn't get hurt or the bike damaged even though there were several cars behind me that stopped quickly behind me. It turns out that the driver was talking to the lady in the front passenger seat and didn't check to see if there was any incoming traffic.

Instead of taking my chances and finish the ride through town, I got off and walked. About a mile from the river and the downtown area, I came across a young boy who was having trouble with his bike. Somehow, he had gotten the chain of his bike really twisted up. I tried to get the chain untangled but I could do a complete job since I didn't have a chain breaker. I did get the bike fixed so that he could at least walk it home.

About a couple hundred feet from the place where I had stopped to help the boy, I saw that somebody had thrown away one of the envelopes that you get from a bank after they cash your check. Something inside of me told me that I should check it out. When I picked it up, the envelope didn't feel like it was empty. Inside was twenty-five dollars and thirty-five cents. This was a really fantastic find and I thought to myself that this might be a way for ADONAI to say that I did a good job helping out the boy.
