Comical Encounters

Written Thursday April 18, 2013 

Have you ever had a comical encounter with God?  I totally believe He has a sense of humor.....I mean we are created in his image, right?!  Well, today I had one of those moments!  To understand it, I'll need to rewind 24 hours.  The hubs and I were laying in bed talking about our day.  I was "happily complaining" about everything I had done this week and what was to come over the next 48 hours.   In the middle of our conversation, Kelly asked me "have you blogged lately"?  OK, TIME OUT.....BIG score for him for paying attention to my rambling AND even bigger brownie points for being involved enough to think about my blog.  I looked over at him and said "NO and I have no clue what I am going to blog about!".  I was almost aggravated that with all I had to do I was going to add 1.) a blog post and just as hard 2.) coming up with something to blog about to the list (my goal is blog every 7-10 days).  I don't want to be too "bragadocious" (but it really drives home the point)....this week we have met with 6 brides and have had 4 new inquiries.  In less than a month, we have gone from praying for business to thinking at what point do you stop taking on new business (hence the happy complaining).  It has brought me to tears on several occasions in the last few weeks just thinking about it what has transpired.  With all this being said, I was driving home today thinking about each and every wedding we have coming up over the next 13 months.....so many emotions....excitement, anticipation, joy, fear, thankfulness, and then BAM it hits me!  It was if God said, "Are you kidding me?  All of this going on, all of these blessings and you don't know what to blog about!  Really?".  I just started laughing.....literally laughing out loud.  It was so true.  To go from "why aren't I booking any weddings" to "I may need to hire someone to help me keep up with all of this".  AND to think I didn't know what to blog about?!  I'm not sure if I was laughing with God or laughing at myself.  This verse immediately came to mind "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house.  Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." Malachi 3:10 (NIV) 

Some very, wise women asked me recently to name 5 things I am thankful for.....my first response was "His favor".  I think I will add "comical encounters with Him" to that list.  ;)
