A Small Blessing

The sand was difficult to walk in. The wet substance and tides rolling in made it hard to continue. But for some unknown reason, we trudged down the shore. Strangers walked in front of us. A man and woman headed in the same direction at a slower pace.

It’s impossible to remember the first comment that connected us for this moment in time. Whatever it was, it drew my husband into a conversation with the younger man and for me to converse with his wife. And in those minutes in time, we told our life story with all its fears and desires to push on.

The two Carnival ships stood in the waters of Amber Cove as we shared what was on our hearts and minds. Was this a coincidence or a moment that was purposefully given to each of us? I believe it was the later. People attracted in time and space for a divine reason.

Minutes clicked by and words flowed. Unexpected tears streamed down my cheeks and hugs exchanged.

We may never see these two individuals ever again. Life will move on. But on this beach in Amber Cove among thousands of strangers, my husband and I met two people that we needed and they us.

As I write this entry, a day has passed and my heart is full of gratitude for the Creator that fashioned this particular time and place for the four of us to meet. And I believe if He can give us this small blessing, he will give us more. We just have to look for them.

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
