Do things ever happen that you think...is this just by chance? Or do you see little things like this as a tender mercy...... a reminder that we have a plan.........a whisper of something divine.
My son told me he wanted a new picture of Christ. He wants the new one that has Christ surrounded by a flock of white sheep, yet in His arms He is cradling a black one. He insists he needs this picture in his room. I am in the car running errands a few days later, and decide to turn the Glenn Beck show on. He begins to talk about a painting he loves, and describes the same one my son did. He tells an AMAZING story about how he was anonymously sent this painting. I won't retell it here, because it was so personal and spiritual,and a little long, but suffice it to say I was bawling in the car. I needed his message that day- if you heard it, you know what that message was, if you didn't, I will search for a link to the transcript. It was amazing.
Was it by chance I heard this and it touched me so deeply? Was it by chance my son was drawn to the same painting?
I had 2 clients come in last week who started to talk about budgeting and finances, and the new goals they have set. You all know I am a Dave Ramsey freak, as his motto is even my blog title, but I have needed a shot in the arm lately. I feel like I will NEVER get the final payment finished off (stupid 2nd freaking mortgage! what was I thinking?) and have felt my spirits getting weak. These clients gave me that boost- that reminder, that little nudge- to keep on going. It is crazy to think something this powerful comes easy. I loved hearing where they are at and just found it funny that with all the people I see week in and week out, they came at this time. They are both recent followers of Dave Ramsey.
Did they both come in last week by chance?
I was just drifting the aisles of the store wanting something yummy. I have a lifelong devotion for an occasional Alligator Jaw. (I didn't take a picture and if you search all you get is gross real alligator mouths on your screen so forget it) I couldn't believe it- the bakery department had one. Whopper eyes, cherry nose, and everything. I snagged that baby and enjoyed it while watching Barrett Jackson auctions with my hubby. You need something like that to get through 4 days of auctions, anyway. But is it just me- or is life full of cool things like this happening?
Well- just kidding about the Alligator Jaw, it was delicious and all, but I didn't consider it divine intervention. The other things...well....they were cool for me. Why not give a little credit?
