not what i planned…but better

July 29, 2009

so get this…i had planned to take this week off from blogging. my thought was to set up posts and let the week take care of itself. i knew my story had 3 parts, so that took care of three days. part 1 went up and i started getting emails and dm’s. so i put up part 2. then before 24 hours had gone by – part 3 was up as well.

i knew my story was gonna go up this week. and i was gonna take that opportunity to sit back and take a break from the interwebs. that was my plan. God had another plan. i had it half right tho. the story was a good idea, the break…not so much.

and know this…i am NOT complaining. no, not one little bit. not even close. this week has overwhelmed me in the best possible way. to know, hear and read how my personal journey and Gods grace and care touched and blessed you confirmed in me that we are all in this together. that we all have a story to be shared. that we all have redemption and new life in us, waiting to be revealed.

i humbly and sincerely thank you for taking all the time you did to read about part of my journey. it is Gods handiwork. and its not “my story”…it belongs to you. thank you for receiving it. sincerely…thank you.

    I would tend to argue that your hard earned skill and talent as a writer have far more to do with it than any divine intervention.

      🙂 i certainly wasnt suggesting that i can not write or dont have, at least a little 😉 , writing skill. i was referring to the outcome, and perhaps i couldve worded that better, of the story/journey. i believe God can and will and does, in His time, work all things together for good for those who love Him…as i am living proof right here.

    If it wasn’t for you my story wouldn’t be complete, explosions of laughter, small reminders “to take care of me”, a depository for tears, and someone to tell me I am not crazy and teaching me to be transparent before my Abba father.

    So real… so much fun… so much love…

    I have read that story like what? 5 times now and every time I am left with an awed feeling of thankfulness and relief. I love you and I love how God has brought you all through. Yup.
