Let me explain....

Well, here goes my first attempt at blogging. I love reading other people's blogs (some I know, some I have stumbled on, and some I feel like I know because I keep following their blogs). Call me a blog stalker if you must. I thought I might give it a shot, too. So, here it is...the debut!

OK, so the title of the blog, "God's Comma". Ever heard that saying, "Never place a period where God has placed a comma"? (Gracie Allen sure was a genius!) Well, it's definitely one of my favorites because it's so true. I mean really, think about it. When was the last time you thought something was finished to find out there was something that was so much more, later? If we were all to hang up our hats and say, "OK, this is it, move on", how many of us would be disappointed to miss out on the good stuff just waiting come. Everything happens in His time - our successes and failures cannot be evaluated in OUR time - we're too quick to count our chicks before all the eggs are laid.

That quote makes me stop and think that I don't know everything and I sure don't know God's plan for me. Sometimes, it's the process not the product - sometimes the lesson is in the process not in the outcome of an event. And, sometimes the reward is hangin' in there to find out what's just around the corner.
