Romans 8:28 is thrown around alot in the Christian circles as to "why" things happen. I think this verse almost gets used too much. But still, it was the first one that popped into my head after what happened today.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."I met a woman today that there is no reason in the world I should have met. Indulge me to back up 1 year to explain why...
When I realized that we really were going to be moving here, I did what any normal woman would do-I started decorating our new house. Yes, the house I had never seen & didn't know the logistics of at all. I knew I wanted to change the boys' decor & picked "camping/outdoors" as their new theme. I found the bedding I wanted (which was, of course, no longer made), but knew I "had" to have it. And, once again, I did what any normal woman on a tight budget does, I turned to craigslist. But not just to TN craigslist, the WHOLE U.S. I stalked every major city I had the time for typing in "woolrich" trying to find this particular bedding (which was going for a killing on ebay). I can remember calling Alaska one night only to find out that she had already sold it. Like I said, I "had" to have this bedding.
|See! Isn't it super cute?!? I eventually found 3 sets total (thanks again Nicolle & Ashley!)|
