One Friday afternoon I left school at 3:00 and went to pick up Hallie just as I always do. When I put her in the car I had a random thought that we go to visit Honey and Pops. I didn't call, but just drove straight there. When I drove up Hallie got so excited, "We going get A-vey Kate!" Poor baby just didn't understand and I was the one who had to break the news to her again. When I got to the door Honey was there waiting. She hugged me and didn't want to let go. "How did you know?" she kept asking. I had no clue what she was talking about. She told me that she had a rough week and needed a hug. She went to get her phone to text me asking if I was busy and if I minded stopping by her house for a while. Right as she grabbed for her phone, I drove up.
We stayed and visited for a while. I love the way God works. He is truly amazing. I believe he does these "divine interventions" a lot and people fail to recognize them. So now when I get caught up in traffic, held up at school, or even when I am running late I don't get mad. I stop and thank God. There may have been a car accident or some other sort of mishap that he is stopping us from being a part of. I vow to be patient and let God lead the way.
