Leaving my safe harbor...

There are God-moments everywhere, if you just look for them. I almost missed a BIG one today. I was frantically rushing through the grocery store getting brownie ingredients and tea assortments for this afternoon's Moms of Treasures tea. (I'm starting a support group for local moms of special needs children). I passed a mother with a grown son in a wheelchair and I had that anxious internal conversation with God. I knew he wanted me to go up to her and talk to her about our group today but when you have a child with special needs, you know how threatening it is when someone approaches you and mentions their special needs. I argued with God for awhile and made it to the dairy aisle before I realized that it was worth the risk. I approached her, introduced myself, and told her about our group. She and I both got teary eyes she recounted that she had just moved to this area and was really looking for a church where her son might be able to fit in. We had a wonderful conversation about the ways that both of our children are a precious blessing to us, I loved meeting her sweet son, and they will be coming to our next meeting in a couple weeks. Thank you God, for pushing me to leave my safe harbor time and time and time again.

  1. Jamie, So grateful that we both listened to God's voice that day as He put us exactly where we were supposed to be. Very much looking forward to your next meeting and sharing Michael with other special needs Moms. I have been blessed with him as my teacher for the past 34 years and would love to share. Thanks for leaving your safe harbor!
