I was over at Denise's blog, and she told me (or at least the reader's at large), that I needed to read this post over at Joy's Hope. Denise has good ideas, so I clicked on the link. It was titled "Nice," and I really don't enjoy the word nice, so because I am as stubborn as a mule, I almost didn't read it. But since I knew Denise wouldn't steer me wrong, I read it anyway, despite my strong will.
I'll let you stop and click on the link now so you can read it, too.
Wasn't that good? I love to hear stories of the amazing ways God works in people's lives.
Well, then I went and clicked on Joy's Story... What's in a Name?
I read all 7 parts.... and I cried. And then I told my husband about it and I cried some more.
Sometimes I don't understand God's plan, but when I read stories like this, I am encouraged that He does have a plan and He does work things together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.
I want to go hug all my boys now, and squeeze them tightly.... and never let go. I want to stop my tendencies to get frustrated and impatient, and treasure every moment as a gift. By God's grace, I have another chance tomorrow.
