God strategically places people just where I need them, exactly where we are needed.
He placed a wealth of knowledge, and heart for God, in a tiny woman with crippling arthritis.
She inspired me to go to school.
He placed eyes that no longer see, yet always see the good, in a bubbly redhead.
She taught me thankfulness.
Into a tough and strong man, He placed a tender heart of mercy.
He taught me to never look back and to forgive myself.
He allowed cancer to infest the body of a man who never stopped sharing Jesus.
He taught me to practice dancing so that I will be ready for Heaven.
God knitted friendship so tightly in a little one, and she held my hand.
She taught me it is okay to be a little girl forever and eternity.
He placed brilliant creativity, which sometimes causes tangled cobwebs and broken chords in a brown eyed soul.
And from him I learned I could express, create, praise…he said I could do it…and when I was lost, and could not remember the words, to stop and say Jesus.
