And…the world gets smaller


I’ve realized that I need to update this blog more often with my thoughts and with things that happen around me.

More and more I am amazed at how the world is connected.  Justin and I started attending a small group called Starting Point at GCC for married individuals.  We are the youngest in the group but it is really neat to see the different stages of life and marriage represented in this group.  This past Monday was our second meeting.  We met at Martin’s Deli and just chatted about ourselves to get to know each other better.

When they got to me and asked for me to tell a little bit about myself I didn’t even know where to begin.  I spoke about going to Gardner-Webb University and meeting Justin and working there.  I figured there was no way that anyone had heard of my tiny Baptist University in tiny Boiling Springs, North Carolina.  When I finished, one of the ladies, Karen, spoke up.  She said “Do you know Philip Swicegood?” I could not believe my ears.  She knew one of my undergraduate professors! Wow! How can that be?  I’ll tell you how that can be.  It was a God wink assuring me that my story is important too and that God was making my heart smile that day.  Isn’t is awesome how God has ALL the details worked out in life? Even down to the tiny details of knowing people? Oh how silly I feel when I think about those things and realize that, as God has said to me many times over the years, “Bonnie, I’ve got this.” So I’m working constantly to fight against what comes so easy in this world, worry and doubt.  I know God has a plan for me.  I just have to realize that it is not all about me and if I want Him to use me in this life I have to be patient and listen.
