Divine Appointments

Repost — Some appointments are simply divine.

Two Are Better Than One

Have you ever felt a tug to do something or go someplace, but you didn’t feel motivated to do it? You know you should go or do whatever it is, but your heart just isn’t in it? If you don’t go, you’ll never know what you missed, but if you do go, you’ll realize in that moment that you were meant to be there all along.

    1. Hi, thanks for the reblog. I see that you have a new blog. Don’t forget to personalize your About Page and your home page, and then start following interesting blogs. The blogging community is warm and welcoming. Best wishes!


  1. I read the prayer of Jabez, a long time ago! You remind me that I should reread the book! I think it happens to all of us, but we should follow that instinct. For example many people are supposed to pick up the phone or call someone and the next thing you know they have passed away. That’s an extreme example but a very real one.
