Do you consider yourself out of luck sometimes or maybe it's just not your time yet!

I once lost a New York Lottery Win For Life winning ticket because one of my parent's neighbors stopped me to ask a whole bunch of stupid questions on my way to the convenient store.

New York Lottery Win for Life winning ticket, someone beat me to it!

I used to have this routine when the Win For Life scratch off game first came out in New York: I get out of work, I go to the gym, I go to my parents house to eat me some good Haitian food, I go to the the convenient store on Hickory Street in Spring Valley to purchase two Win for Life tickets, then I go home.

That day, as I left my mom and dad's house to get into my car, one of the very talkative friends of my dad's stopped me to chit chat.

When I got to the convenience store and asked for my two Win For Life like I always do every afternoon, I saw the store owner posting copies of the winning ticket purchased at the store on the wall...

Apparently, the person who bought two Win For Life tickets right before me won.

So is this bad luck or did God send my father's idiot friend to keep me busy so the lucky winner could get there first?

I am writing this and I have a smile on my face!

God is smiling too!

Don't take life too seriously my friend, or you will go

In the world we say lucky but as Christians we say blessed to be a blessing.

I felt blessed a lot of times but sometimes things just don't workout or can't work out no matter what and that's maybe because it's not the time yet.

20 years ago I wanted a particular S Class Mercedes Benz with a certain color and interior color but I couldn't afford it and I didn't think there was that combination in existence so I went on forget about it.
