I was feeling really sick, because I hadn’t eaten much for breakfast. Luckily, I was in a city nearby that has a McDonalds (my community has one tiny diner). I got a few chicken strips and started to drive away.
All of a sudden, one of my college biology professors walked right in front of my car! Amazing, considering he lives in a town an hour and a half away from where I saw him. So, since I hadn’t seen him in about 8 years, I got out and called out his name. He turned around and acted as if we had seen each other just yesterday.
Now, this isn’t too surprising since we worked together in the lab all the time and I was one of the first students in a research scholarship program that he was in charge of. The surprise was that he had just been recruiting at a nearby junior college, and said only twenty minutes before he had mentioned my name as a student who had went through the program. So we spent time catching up, talked a little science and theology, and marveled at this chance encounter. Man, this happens so often to me it’s scary!
