It was just a typical trip down town to Mano's salon to get my hair cut and pay a couple of bills.......and at the same time some thing not so typical took place.
My stylist, Dalton Mano, owner of Mano's and I had a long conversation.
You see usually when I go to get my hair done the salon is full of people and Dalton is attending to two or three clients at the same time.......or there are those times I'm just not in the mood to talk. Well today was different. It was my first time back in after arriving from my vacation to the States for Christmas and New Years. So of course he asked how my vacation was and just exactly how cold it had been.
From there the conversation launched into what Americans think about Brazil, airport security, how I liked living in Brazil, the situation about Sandy Brook elementary and guns. I was amazed that in the midst of our discussion on guns that this Brazilian, non-believer could see that the true problem doesn't lie with guns per say, but with the individual.
Needless to say as I was leaving the salon Dalton said he was looking forward to future conversations with me. You know, you never can predict where a conversation will lead and the possibilities it will unveil for future conversations and seeds to be planted.
So.......buy those opportunities to plants seeds and then watch to see what God does next.
