God’s Perfect Timing — 15 Comments

  1. Oh Janis, this was heartbreakingly (in a good way) beautiful. Happy Birthday to Tim, and I hope he knows how much joy he has brought to your family. It sounds like that car was *hallowed ground* the other day!

    God did something quite small the other day, but it meant so much to me. I have always thought of the Holy Spirit when I see butterflies. And they have always seemed to arrive at just the *perfect* time. I’ve been toughing out an anxious season as of late, and the other day I was absolutely couch-bound. I was quietly praying for God to help me, when the biggest butterfly started fluttering right outside the window. It stayed for the longest time…

    I happen to think that God does amazing things in my life – even if it’s *just* sending a butterfly my way.


  2. What a beautiful gift for Tim right from the heart of God. (Loved the pictures too)

  3. Isn’t that just like the Lord to show up so personally on a birthday like that. Like a special birthday hug just for Tim. Love how you described it! Oh, I know that trek to San Diego and back so well because we have family also there! My Joyce Meyer CD’s are constantly playing! Do you ever break it up in Dateland? Ever try their date peanut butter cookies??? I picked up a couple I thought I’d gift my girlfriend who loves that place and the ride was so boring Tom and I ate them both! I’m not proud of that.


  4. Janis, simply beautiful. I was holding back tears. Isn’t God amazing? Wow! Thank you so much for sharing with Three Word Wednesday. It’s always so good to see you linkup. Blessings. xoxo

  5. Janis, such a beautiful story of the God incidence in our lives. He weaves together a beautiful tapestry of all the little moments we could not begin to foresee how they all come together to tell of his fingerprint on our lives.

  6. What a wonderful thing God did for both you and your son! Our two oldest grandkids are adopted and we couldn’t love them more.

  7. That precise devotional was planted there by God for that very moment when you would view it. Our God is amazing !! Thank you for sharing your lovely story with us here at “Tell me a Story.”

  8. I love when God works out timing like that. I’m so glad you were able to read the adoption devotional on your son’s birthday! God is so very capable of more than we can imagine.

  9. Oh, Janis, this is beautiful. God has given me so many signs that He is present and active in my life…too many to count! But recently, it’s been through that VBS music from last week. He is so good!
