I can't express in words how it made me feel.

This last weekend, we had an outstanding show in Georgia.  At the close of the show, a beautiful girl came up to our booth which was already shrink wrapped and wanted to look at the jewelry.  I opened up the shrink wrap on several things and made as good of a presentation as you can when you are already closed and the rain storm is looming. 

After 20 minutes, Bubba had to go get the van and trailer to load up and left us alone.  She got out her credit card and bought an inexpensive bracelet.  As I turned my back, she lifted the lid on our jewelry box and slipped out a piece and dropped it in her purse.  I had no idea of course until a man who had been watching her came up and told her she had two choices.  He said he saw her put something in her purse and she could either give it back or we would call the police.  She looked like a deer in headlights as she gave back the necklace and quickly walked away.  I can say it was a very uncomfortable situation to be in and even more so to forget. 

I have since forgiven her even though I will most likely not see her again.  I ask you to pray for her and her future.  Maybe she will use this as a chance to have a fresh start....

Praise the Lord for the gentleman who refused to be a bystander---he confronted wrongdoing in a clear and authoritative way! Holy Spirit, awaken this girl's conscience and convict her of sin so that she may know your grace and mercy and salvation! Thank you for provision and protection!
