I typically do not make a blog post without praying about it, and going through it to make sure it reads exactly how I need it to read. But this morning is a little different. . .

  1. I am a firm believer in God’s delay being right in time. I also bare witness to this taking place in my life and my children’s lives. Not only does God work on the time that is right, often after we have found our way back to a chosen path. And doing so without thought or purpose in a way that is selfish or manipulative. Pure of heart and intent it comes out of nowhere (or so it appears). The beauty then is that you are not only put in the place you are to be, but are also in the place you would have been without the delay. Gods Grace is real and amazing! Thank you for the post and repost!
