Saturday the boys played golf in the morning and Leigh Ann and I
Funny story...before we left to go out we were standing in her closet picking out her outfit (more on that on Wednesday) and we were talking about my blog. My family really thinks I should write a book...I love to write, but I feel very silly thinking that anyone other than my family would really want to read a book I wrote. I told Leigh Ann that...I think I said it like this, "I write the stuff I put on the blog because I feel like I am supposed to, but I still don't think anyone really reads it all except our family." End of discussion....we got ready and left for the concert.

Leigh Ann, Me and Selah!
Now on to the most amazing part of the story. When we got to the concert, we were looking for seats and Leigh Ann thought we should sit upstairs in the balcony. I didn't really want to but I went up there anyway. A little later, a girl came and sat beside Leigh Ann. Leigh Ann, who doesn't talk to strangers, struck up a conversation with her. Her name was Cyndi and she was super sweet. We chatted until the concert started. It was a great concert and at intermission, I tweeted that it was a great concert. All of a sudden, Cyndi looked up and over at me and asked me my last name. I told her and she screamed and said, "I know you. I follow your blog. I was just at a Priscilla Shirer event and there was a group of us talking about you." I was floored!!! That has NEVER happened to me...never. I switched seats with Leigh Ann and we enjoyed the rest of the concert.
In the middle of the second set of songs (I sound like I know concert talk, don't I?) I was thinking about meeting Cyndi here...the chance of it all...sitting in the balcony when I really wanted to sit in the floor seats....and then I remembered saying to Leigh Ann that no one but family reads my blog and so no one would care if I wrote or not...and I smiled. God is sovereign, I know that. But it still blows my mind that He would know I would say that to Leigh Ann and then He would bring Cyndi all the way from Mississippi to Montgomery, AL to say to me, "Keep writing...it is more than family reading." I am not saying that to be cocky...not at all. Only to say that God hears us and speaks to us in the most unexpected ways! So, thank you Cyndi for being an answer to a prayer!
In my quest to follow God more closely, I realized (AGAIN) this weekend, He is in the details...ALL of the them. And sometimes, He shows off just because He can.
Stay strong, keep close to Him and have a super week!
