Two months ago I lost my grandmother. With my loss I spent more time back home which I wouldn't have been able to do had I not left the job I loved.
Three weeks ago I was offered a better position back at the Hut that I didn't think I would ever be offered. With the loss of my grandmother and all the time I would have taken off I'm not sure I would have been given the opportunity for this new position had I stayed. I gave my notice at the new one.
Two weeks ago, on my last day, I was called out of work. A few minutes later I received a phone call and found myself headed to the Portland hospital to be with my sister and her little girl.
I have wondered at the timing of these past few months. I've wondered why I my new job just didn't seem to fit quite right. I wondered at the death of my Grandmother who was full of life just days before her passing. I wondered at the offer of this other position.
Now that I'm through it, I can see how God used one to lead to the other. This chain of events allowed me to love on people that hurt so deeply. I can't help but remember the words of Solomon the wisest man ever to live saying there is a time for everything.
There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under the heaven.
~ Ecclesiastes 3:1
166. A God who coordinates events perfectly.
