A new follower Cyndi from iloveme-ilovemenot.bologspot.com had this on her blog...You know how I love to spread inspiration so I copied for you all...Have a fruitful, Blessed weekend Patricia
I had a really wonderful thing happen to me today. What made it really meaningful was that I had no idea who this person was, as we had never met or even spoke. I went to the supermarket in my hometown, and as in all small towns we all know each other and ask what's new, and share small talk about our lives.
At the checkout my regular woman Mary was helping me and she inquired about my health and the test that I had gone for last week. In relating the story of the outcome, I explained to her that the results were not good, and that since the fourth surgery is a very serious one that would not give me back any ability, and even after the shoulder replacement I would have permanent disabilities and limitations, that I decided God will show me what I need to do to learn to live with the pain, because having that procedure just to reduce pain was not an option for me.
She said she was so sorry to hear that after all I've been through that it had gotten worse. She packed my bags light and doubled, knowing I have to pick my bags up left-handed and she told me to have a nice day and feel better.
I left the store and was emptying my packages slowly into my trunk when a woman walked up to me and said "I overheard your conversation, and I just want you to know that I said a prayer for you and I hope you feel better." I thanked her and she got in her truck,(which happened to be parked right next to mine, in a large parking lot) coincidence, I don't think so.
I think God absolutely wanted me to know that He is sending me what I need from places I don't even know about, through people I don't even know. It gave my heart such a smile. I have done the same for others before, though I never had the chance to tell them, as I didn't happen to park next to them, but I pray all the time for those I don't know.
She will never know how much that meant to me on so many levels. Prayer is the weapon the Holy Spirit, Our Savior and Father equipped us with to endure the trials we all face on our journey.
My hope after reading this little story is that all of us remember that we carry the strongest weapon ever created in our Hearts and Minds everyday, and that we have the power to use this weapon to help as many people as we possibly can.
Have you had something similar happen to you? Has our Father shown you through some action that let you know He hears and sees your needs, even when you don't ask? I am sure we would all love to hear about them. May you all have a safe and fruitful weekend, and may we all continue to feel God's loving embrace Patricia©
