Not sure why, but I’ve been seeing more than a few weird signs along my local roadways recently. 

There was the handwritten one being waved excitedly by a man on the corner that said, “Valtines baskets”.  I’m assuming from the odd collection of shrink-wrapped teddy bears on the ground next to him that it meant to say “Valentine’s”. 

And then there was the puzzling one outside of a restaurant that said “Wecater”.  Now I know I live in a culturally diverse area, but I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what the word “wecater” meant.  Oh.  I get it.  “We  cater”.  Seems someone forgot the space.

But I saw one on the way to church on Sunday morning that really made me think.  Waiting at a red light, I looked over to the corner and saw a faded street sign that simply said, “BEGIN”.   From the looks of it, a sign underneath it was missing.  I assume that was the sign that explained what was supposed to “begin”.  It may have been a scenic route sign, or a maybe a school zone.  Without the context, I had to take it for what it said. 


It made me wonder if there’s anything in my life I should begin.  It made me wonder if God is waiting for me to do something and I need the reminder to just do it. Maybe something I’ve been putting off.  Maybe something that just won’t get done if I don’t…begin. 

I’ve been asking God for a sign.  I just didn’t expect Him to take me literally!

Be strong and of good courage, and do it;  1 Chronicles 28:20
