In Awe

Just taking a second away from normal posts to let you in on something that still has me caught in utter amazement. Monday, I posted and published Danielle's story, and asked you all to be a blessing to her. I also follow this blog, and I was a little confused as to why the update showed up yesterday (Tuesday) in my blogroll instead of Monday when I had posted it. I shrugged it off, thinking something crazy must have happened, but didn't give it much thought at all.

Then, yesterday afternoon, I got an email from Danielle.

I logged onto my blog today and was surprised to find some new commenters on my blog saying they were visiting for Shoulders. I'd never heard of this before, so I went to the blogs of the women who left comments and found the link to your blog. I am Danielle, Wyatt's mommy, am I just wanted to let you know how pleasantly surprised I was that Nati nominated me to be featured here. God's timing is wonderfully perfect! Do you realize the significance of you posting this TODAY? Today is the day congress goes back into session for the year. Today is the first official day of my real fight to have my sons short life recognized by Tennessee. I've been nervously excited for today to get here. I've been praying for God to give me a sign that he would walk me down this path to obtaining a birth certificate for Wyatt. I feel this was God's way of letting me know he is in this fight with me. Thank you so much. A simple post has lifted a great weight off of my shoulders, and answered months of prayers.

Used with permission.

Tears filled my eyes as I explained to her what a true work of God it was. Even now, I am humbled and encouraged by this small "accident" that God has worked a big miracle through. We are all a part of something much bigger here. We may not see it, but it is definitely true. God is making His hand evident in this ministry, and with dedicated followers, there is no limit to the work He can do through us.

Again, is there another that we can bless?


  1. How wonderful that it was posted the day Congress was back in!!!

  2. That gives me chills. Don't you love being on the front row when God shows up. Amazing!

  3. That is amazing. God is so faithful, isn't he?

  4. That is the God we serve at work. I am marveling over some things today myself. God is so willing to work when we let him. He does so many wonderful things - I think more than we take time to notice.

    Praising God with you.
