Considerate Browsing

In so many ways, this is very similar to the escalator blog I posted previously but hey, if they are failing to pay attention to one, I am sure that they will ignore this one!

I was minding my own business yesterday, browsing for a gift. (I am sure that you are all far too aware that it is Christmas, that time of the year when shops manage to find the ability to convince the unsuspecting shopper that anything useless is actual useful if given as a gift! - see for what Christmas is really about!). I stood back, politely to let 3 ladies pass between me and the shelf I was looking at because there was clearly not enough room behind me for them to pass! Quite amazingly they stopped in front of me to have a chat - preventing me from seeing anything on the shelf I was looking at.

I genuinely believe that they had been quite oblivious to my browsing; I can't possibly believe that they did it purposefully. On the off chance that they did.... a simply sorry might have been nice but as a gesture of good will to all men (and women) please rest assured that I didn't hold it against you!

I Know It Has Been A While

OK, so I know it has been a while but that isn't to say I haven't been thinking about a load of things that I would like to put up on the blog. I could go on for hours about CLOD's (see previous posts) or Escalator virgins (again see previous posts) but the reality is I am writing to find the answer to a single question: Who was the author of the following quote:

"Security is found not in the absence of danger but in the presence of Jesus"

Googling it returns a whole host of people, blogs and books saying things like "It has been said that", "someone once said", "I heard that" etc. but I really would like to find out who actually said it. I genuinely believe it was divine inspiration and I know that I heard it on a radio broadcast about 4 years ago. I am sure that even then it was quoted!

So please, if anyone can let me know who quoted this, I'd really like to know!
