James 5:19-20 My brothers and sisters, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring that person back, 20 remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins.(NIV)

The day I felt the loss of a sense of balance was the day I placed my Blue Eagle, 150cc cycle on Craig’s list.   Then the day I pulled out into oncoming traffic and survived without mishap, I knew it time to become the permanent passenger. “The wandering from the truth” was noted by family and, even though it irritated, I knew it was for the best. I do not find it comfortable to  have my shortcomings pointed out by others, but Mattie and Sam didn’t raise a dummy. Having someone else in charge can be a bit frightening.  I have noticed that they seem to be going a bit too fast, especially on curving roads.  I’ve learned to be ‘tacit’ and hold on to something.  I realize James was addressing the danger of continuing in a sinful state, but it also applies to losing my way when driving.  I also find that that lack of responsibility provides opportunity to suggest the right direction when the one doing the driving is a bit confused. It’s best to be patient and wait for them to realize their mistake before asking, “Where are we going?”.  You must know just when to do that, donchaknow.  GOD makes it possible for us to be ready to share the truth, lovingly without a hint of judgement.  For that I am most thankful and a much better passenger.  That’s what I get from my Box of Chocolates.   AMEN
