So many fun moments happened in April I haven’t been able to keep up with them! So rather than several different “Captured Moments” posts, I’m doin’ two “catching up” ones instead. 🙂
You’ve heard me talk a lot on this blog about the beauty of nature. Even more beautiful to me is the beauty of the human spirit and the relationships we share (all of it a reflection of our Creator). Many of the Captured Moments in April have to do with just that.
First there was the surprise home visit I was blessed to help orchestrate for the dear people who were my godparents growing up. Carsyn has been out of state for college and wasn’t able to come home for Spring Break. But through a lot of prayer and the collaborative help of her brother as well as others, we were able to fly her home to surprise her mom and dad for their 50th and 51st birthdays (which are only a day apart.) They are some of the most loving, giving people I know, and your jaw would drop to the floor if I listed all of the many ways they have helped so many people around the community without ever expecting a thing in return. So it was such a huge honor to be able to love on and give back to them for once with a surprise they never saw comin’! 🙂
That was a pretty hard one to top, but Easter this year was downright amazing, too. It started out with a bunch of daffodils I’ve come to see as “my miracle flowers,” because although we’ve never planted daffodils, they appeared out of nowhere one winter when I needed a sign of hope the most. They signified new life to me, and daffodils just happen to be one of my favorites. Somehow I knew they were planted by God Himself as a reminder of His tender love and care for me, so I was in awe when not only did they bloom again this year, but they also bloomed a few days before Easter… with a card that had blown right next to them with a message I needed to hear:
That very same day was egg-dying day, so you can bet I was feeling inspired!
That’s all for now, but stay tuned for Part 2 coming soon!
