the story of monday cont.

with 5 comments

policeit’s interesting how when you know you’re not doing anything wrong, how nothing can phase you.  this is what happened on monday.

so after i picked up some people from marta, i was driving to drop them off at their cars.  there was a car behind me and a cop behind that car.  the car behind me gets out of the cop’s way and then i hear the “bloop!” of the siren when cops are trying to get someone to pull over.  i thought maybe it was someone ahead of me cause i wasn’t speeding or anything, so i change lanes.  but the cop changes lanes right behind me.  i finally pull over and i’m like, uhhh… what the frick is going on?  i wasn’t scared or nervous or anything like the first time i got pulled over 2 years ago.  and i was surprised i wasn’t.

the officer comes by my doorside and i hand him my license and registration.  he goes, “i just couldn’t read the tags on your license plate.”  in my head i was like, “did i just hear him correctly?  did he just say he couldn’t read it?”  so i asked if they were expired even though i knew they weren’t.  he said, “no, i just couldn’t read them.”  i’m like, what the…?!?!  then he gave my documents back and we left.  afterwards, the people in my car said, “wow, he must’ve been bored.”

it’s funny how if this happened on the highway, i would’ve been pretty nervous about being pulled over.  but knowing that there’s nothing for him to put blame on me for makes you a little cooler and calmer.  and being in ministry, i automatically equate this with life.  if you’re not doing anything wrong (i.e. sin, and i don’t mean you’re perfect, but that’s another issue), people can’t stick things on you or blame you for anything and so there is no reason to worry about what other people will criticize you or judge you for.  and maybe this is being over simplistic, but perhaps it is this simple.
