I'm not really sure how to start this post, because I was so pleasantly surprised this morning and caught off guard. I wasn't even sure I was going to talk about it on my blog...because of the fact that it was one of those deeply personal moments that you don't want to end, you just want to hold it close to your heart and feel it wrap around you.
So the more I've thought about it today, the more I knew I had to dedicate a post to it! I started this blog so that some day I can print it into books, look back on where I've been, and hopefully show Max one day when he can fully appreciate it. This is why I decided to write about this special moment that I had - so that Max can see how this blog has changed his mommy - how God has used it as a tool to pull me closer to Him.
This morning I had just gotten to work and sat down at my desk, when my door opens and a sweet, sweet woman came in (that I've worked with for several years now)- looking nervous and anxious to talk. She walked straight up to me, took both of my hands in hers, and began telling me that she felt led to pray with me. She explained that she felt led to do this (even though she would have rather done it in a more "private" place) - but she is one of those people that I see as following God's call no matter what He asks her to do. She had been reading my blog and thinking about me for the last couple of weeks.
Her hands trembled as she began to pray for me - asking God to take care of Max and I, to help us deal with the situation at hand, and also to let me know how special I was to the kids at school. As her prayer ended I felt peace wash over me like never before. She wasn't there to condemn me, wasn't there to question me or accuse me (which has been done to me alot lately) - only there because God asked her to pray for my broken heart. And although it was not comfortable for her, she did what the Lord asked, and in turn blessed me more than she will ever know.
Thank you, Lord - for sending me these people who are bits of sunshine to me. They may be friends, they may be strangers...but you send different people at different times, at perfect moments, just when I need them. You are working thru these people to reach me - and now I am reaching back. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lord - Your ways are beyond my understanding.
