It's a small world after all.

Monday, June 20, 2011

The other day, I had just finished up an exam at school and was walking outside catching up with a friend on the phone. As soon as I hung up, a lady and her son nearby stopped me. I thought they needed directions.

"Do you have a blog?" the lady asked.

(I'm sure my face turned bright red at this point.)


"Elm Street Life??"

Turns out, she had been reading the blog for quite some time from Boston. She knew I lived in Nashville, but didn't know what school I went to and just recognized me. I'm so glad she said hello! I'm still feeling a little stunned. People in Boston, even in other countries, read my blog?? Intersecting for just 5 minutes was such an encouragement to me and a confirmation for her that her son is in the right place, even so far from home.

I'm temped to say, "Wow, what a small world. What are the chances?"
But in my heart, I know the truth: what a big God!
