From the time we picked seats at the Cafe on Saturday and were surprised to find we were sitting practically next to each other, to the time some of us went up to the front of the sanctuary after the last service tonight to say goodbye to members of the team who had come to conduct the revival, I kept bumping into a church member who had offended me, everywhere I turned. It had to be a God thing devised to heal any bad feelings I might still be harboring, because by the end of the evening, I actually felt genuine warmth and camaraderie towards her, and could sense the Lord smiling down on me.

Couldn't figure out how to put a new dust bag in my vacuum cleaner. I knew my neighbor could help me, but she's hardly ever here anymore. However, as I was on my down the stairs this afternoon, the front door opened, and she walked in. A Divine appointment for sure.

When I got home from tonight's revival session, there was a text message from my daughter telling me that my grandson was home, as well as two beautiful and encouraging messages on Facebook from the lady I had met at Harpers Ferry. One in particular, that was a response to my Mothers Day post brought tears to my eyes and an overwhelming sense of God's love.
Tonight's message about cultivating a humble heart, the story of Naaman (2 Kings 5:1-19), and how the greatest trials can become stepping stones to the greatest blessings when we surrender all, gave me so much hope and a new way to pray for my two grandchildren facing heavy issues. When I went into the prayer room to pray for them, I had an overwhelming sense of God being in control and that everything would be all right.
