perfect timing | personal

have you ever gone somewhere and had something happen to you just because you were there at the perfect time? just think about it for a second. anything come to mind? i know i’ve been driving somewhere, rushing to get to where i need because i’m late, and then i saw a car accident up ahead. that helps me pause and reflect and just be grateful. because i was running late to work, i happened to miss being in the accident.

maybe that’s just me being weird, but that’s how i believe. i know that everything happens for a reason and God has a perfect plan for everything.

my whole reason for sharing this with y’all is because of a story i heard on the radio the other day. the lady was talking about “divine appointments” and how God can use you to bring joy to someone or He can bring joy to you through someone else. it’s pretty cool if we think about the instances when something like that has happened. she shared her story of going to a restaurant that was owned by this cute little old couple. she kept  thinking to herself how beautiful the owner’s wife was and even got the courage to tell the owner. she said, “your wife is so beautiful and i just love her stunning hair.” the owner replied with, “wait right there, let met get my wife.” when he brought her over he asked the lady to tell his wife what she told him. when she did, the lady was brought to tears. apparently, she had lost all of her hair to cancer and had felt anything but beautiful. and of course, this story made me sob like a baby in my car haha. it’s just so beautiful!

gah! isn’t that so cool? God used that lady from the radio to bring joy to the woman who had cancer. all because of being there at the right place at the right time. God is pretty awesome like that.

anywho, just wanted to share that random story with you all! if you’ve had anything like that happen to you before, i would love to hear your story! 🙂
