It's A Small World!
Yesterday as I was sitting in the choir loft at the beginning of the Sunday morning service I couldn't help but notice some visitors sitting with one our church's families. There was an older couple & a lady sitting there with them. I did a double take because the lady sitting there looked just like Miss Wagner, my freshman speech teacher at Northland. Surely not, I thought. Why in the world would she be visiting my church & how would she possibly know the family she was sitting with? After the service I worked my way over to shake her hand & sure enough, it was Miss Wagner! We had a great time catching up for a few minutes when she told me about how the Lord had moved her from Northland to a counseling ministry in Denver. I got to tell her about how the Lord had led me to a job in pharmacy. It turns out that her dad is the pastor of the church that the family in my church had previously attended in Michigan (did you get that?). How funny. I was just thinking the other day that I had such great memories of my time at Northland but that it was very sad that it is geographically so far away that I don't get up there to visit & I never just bump into anyone from there. I'm sure the Lord was smiling, knowing that just a couple of days later I would get to see Miss Wagner!
