It's not odd, it's God.....

This week so far has been full of several "it's not odd, it's God" moments!

I decided to go for a short walk Tuesday morning.
I was just going to go out to the end of the longest road and head back home.....
a short little trip of about 20-25 minutes.....
that wound up taking me an hour and 20 minutes.

As I got to the end of the road we live on, 
a neighbor was blowing leaves in his yard and he stopped and chatted with me.....
for about 35 minutes.

I told him that I was keeping him from his work and I headed out to my destination.  Little did I know that God had interrupted my walk because of something that was about to happen on down the road. As I approached a house toward the end of my route,  a little dog came out barking at me. I had seen it before and I'm a bit afraid of dogs.....
especially, those who head right toward me barking.
The young lady who lives there with her hubby and 3 children
(something I found out a bit later)
was mowing the yard and she hollered for the dog to come back.
It I headed to the end of the road.
As I came back that way, 
the dog came toward me again.
The young lady turned off the mower and hollered for the dog.
I stopped to chat with her and we exchanged names.....
and you just wouldn't believe the conversation that took place.....
entirely about God and the church and she told me that our talk was yet another confirmation to a prayer she had been praying and I approached the mower and we hugged and I came back home with such a happy heart!

I don't work outside the home,
so I often ask God to use me.....
send me somebody I can help!
I love that He does that,
even in the most simplest thing like taking a walk!
But the "funny" thing is.....
I'm the one who winds up getting the most out of it!

Oh, how awesome HE is!
I'm so thankful at how much HE loves us!!

Breathing in Grace,


  1. That's wonderful. You were a blessing to that young lady and I feel blessed just reading about your encounter. May God Bless you, dear Debbie.

  2. Amazing! What a blessing you were able to be 😊. God is in the midst of us for sure....


Kind words are like honey—
