What's the Point?

I have been meaning to write this for a while now.

This happened after our friend's memorial service. I had to go buy groceries after the service. It was the only time I could fit it in in that week. I really didn't want to be there, somehow it felt disrespectful to her. I looked at all the people I passed as I slowly went up and down the aisles. Everyone looked so busy, staff working stocking the shelves, customers (including me) checking off those long lists. All of the sudden I was overwhelmed with an empty feeling of pointlessness. And then it happened. God gave me a gift right there in the middle of PriceMart. My song began to play over the speakers! (read my previous post for the story about my special song.) I couldn't believe it! I stopped and listened to the words, said thank you to God and kept on moving.
