"Have you ever thought that if one thing hadn't happened, a whole set of things never would have either? Like dominoes in time, a single event kicked off an unstoppable series of changes that gained momentum and spun out of control, and nothing was ever the same again. Don't ever doubt that a mere second can change your life forever."
I've thought about this many times, actually, and it's so true. It's crazy to trace life events backwards -- events that maybe seemed insignificant at the time, but one thing led to another and as a result, your life is totally different than it might have been if that first little thing had never happened.
And God is orchestrating all of it. Every encounter, decision, roadblock, conversation, trial, surprise, and turn-of-events, He is orchestrating for our good and His glory....making everything beautiful in its time.
I can't wait to see what beautiful things He is planning down this path He's leading me on! It's less than 50 days until I set out on the actual trip to Alaska, but the journey has already begun. And this is one of those things that I can look back on the past few years and see the "dominoes in time" that have led to this moment.
He's making everything beautiful in HIS time and I'm crazy excited.
