Thursday Thought: Unexpected Blessings

Last weekend we traveled to Colorado to celebrate with old friends.  We expected to have a lovely time with them, and to enjoy the gorgeous scenery around the Collegiate Peaks, which we did. But I was reminded once again of God's love for me in the unexpected blessings. Who thought we'd see a golden eagle in the middle of the afternoon, or meet up with students whose families would become the kind of new friends that feel like old friends?  Or that we would find a lovely river walk to enjoy on our way?

God is a master of design.  With Him, there are no coincidences-- only divine appointments.  When I follow my days delighting in that fact, they are happy days.
