A Sign of God

The other day, I came across a new blog. Things With Wings.... is a fun little spot! The first piece of art I saw on their blog had this quote: "A sign of God is that you are led where you never planned to go." I won't go into details of why that speaks to me. I'll just tell you that it really touched me.

To look at the "lighter side" of this quote I thought I would share a few pictures with you. Last Saturday we all hopped in the van to attend a crawfish boil at some friends' house. Right before we left I ask hubby if he knew where we were going. He was "pretty sure" he knew how to get there. Needless to say, what should have been a 5 minute trip took over 30 minutes.

I was getting quite irritated as we drove down all these country roads. Why can't he just call somebody and get directions? Then I saw this.....
...and I made him stop so I could take a picture. Is that not one of the sweetest cottages you have ever seen? Down a little old country road we didn't plan on traveling....
Then I made him stop for this....

.....and this!

As it turns out, we had driven right by the road we needed. Had we turned right away we would have missed the beauty. We didn't plan on going down those country roads, but we saw signs of God along the way.

{For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and He ponders all his paths. Proverbs 5:21}
