Immediately, another thought popped into my mind. Hmmm…yesterday I saw a
truck with a Jesus Saves decal and a license plate border with the words: Psalm 46:10. I remember thinking that I was going to look up that verse and see what it said. So, at the very time I had the
Jesus Calling book and the Bible in my hand, seeking a quieter place to
meditate, I felt the need to look up that verse. Oh - the precious hand of God! It was a pure miracle of my sweet
Father. That verse says, “Be still, and
know that I am God.” Recognizing the
hand of God in that whole thing, I began to weep. When I feel God's direct Hand in my life, I am overwhelmed by His grace and it always brings tears!
Such amazing moments when God reaches down and works what might appear to some to be a small miracle (I think it's huge!), Heaven and earth do indeed intersect and we can feel the loving Hand of God reminding us that He is here with us all the time - every moment of every day. There is nothing too large, or too small for God to work through for our good. God says, "Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you," Jeremiah 31:3. What a blessing!

The end of June, we stopped by Stone Mountain State Park in Roaring Gap, North Carolina, part of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our intention was to walk along an easy one-quarter mile trail to a scenic view of the stone mountain. At least, that is what I thought I read in the brochure. However, it appears that I must have imagined such a trail, because it doesn't seem to exist.
These words by Alexander Graham Bell had special meaning when we ended up taking an unexpected two-mile hike in the woods: "Don't keep forever on the public road, going only
where others have gone and following after the other like a flock of
sheep. Leave the beaten track
occasionally and dive into the woods.
Every time you do so you will be certain to find something that you have
never seen before."
