We were about to exit for a quick rest stop, and one of my sisters asked me if she needed her hair fixed (after resting this afternoon). I said that no, it was okay, and anyway, we werenâ€™t going to see anyone we know. Upon coming out of the very busy rest stop, a family hurried after us. Come to find out, this was a family who had e-mailed us a few weeks ago and had invited us to stop by their home in Maine as we passed through. We didnâ€™t have time, so we had had to decline the kind offer. About an hour before our stop, a fifteen-passenger van had passed us, and the parents waved at us, and seemed like they knew us. They took the next rest area, but we didnâ€™t. We were shocked when we both ended up at the same stop about an hour later, and to find this was the family who had invited us to stay at their home! What a blessing to spend a few minutes chatting with the family.
Sarah for the rest of the family

The Lord cares about the little things! He knew how important it was to that family to meet you in person and so He arranged it. I love hearing stories like that because it reminds me that He does care about the little things. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Hah! Isn’t that the way it always goes? “Oh, I won’t see anyone I know. I’ll won’t bother with my (hair, makeup, shoes, clothes).” And then, no matter WHERE you are, you run into someone you know! 🙂
