A few months I was expressing those sentiments to my friend, Caroline. The way the Lord brought us to each other is quite a story and I can hardly believe the depth of our friendship in such a short time. It was during that conversation that she told me about a book that she had just finished reading and thought I would enjoy as well. The book was incredible. The basic premise is that God holds all of the strands of our lives. He is the Grand Weaver. He knows the design for our lives, and He weaves those threads to make a masterpiece.
During my time in Atlanta, so many threads have been added to the tapestry of my life. Families, mentors, friends. Jobs, books, churches. How comforting it is to know that even in my moments of confusion, God still has the threads. He is weaving. He is bringing people into my life...allowing things to happen, both good and bad...and all to grow me and help me to see his unconditional love.
My time in Atlanta is not one that I will soon forget. It is filled with too many life changing people and moments for that. Thanks for letting me share them with you this week.
