Pondering Some Sweet Things

I’ve met some interesting people in the last couple of weeks as I venture out and promote my wedding and event business.

There was the group of local women business owners who invited me to a networking event last week. Included in the bunch was a lovely woman who brought her magic cookies and shared them with all of us. I was so impressed with Diane that I’m adding her to my business website! (Click on the link under the cookie picture to check her out)

I also went to see a local farm- Destiny Hill– that does weddings on their real working lavender farm. And they design bridal flowers pulled from their own flower beds! I was in love with the place from the moment I drove up the driveway!

There was something interesting too that happened to me last week that I’ve been wanting to share with you. Here goes….

Can you see them?
Can you see them?

I was driving on a road just minutes away from my own home, engrossed in thinking about my business. (I’ve been doing that a lot lately!) So catching myself, I took a minute for a gratitude prayer and then asked God for assistance with my new venture. In the next minute, the car in front of me slowed down. I glanced up to see what was going on and there was the source. A gaggle of small turkeys, slowly making their way across the road, completely stopping traffic. As they reached the other side, the lead turkey decided she really didn’t want that side, she wanted the other side.

So they all turned around and went back across the road.

I pulled my car over to the berm, so excited about the turkeys that I grabbed my cell phone. Not wanting to scare them, I kept back and was able to snap a picture or two. Other cars sped on as soon as the turkeys were off the road. I stood a moment or two until they disappeared into the brush.

What does this beautiful nature sighting mean? To me it was an instant affirmation that God is with me. S(he) is watching over me and hears my prayers. All I need to do is believe and things will work out as they should, not by my plan but by a divine plan. To see my favorite creatures in such multiples, I can’t help but be overwhelmed by the sight. To me, it is a sign of future abundance as long as I am willing to keep a grateful heart.

What’s your favorite creature of nature? I’d love to know!

Join me on my graceful journey.

  1. Amen. His plan is always best. I look for such signs myself in my days travels. Looking ahead and am waiting to see how He orchestrates the next chapter of my life. My new sweetheart wants me to join my life with him….so moving is probably the next step…..starting the process and preparing for the unknown. God is in control and I am along for the ride! Loving what He does.

  2. Hi Joann, I love the analogy of seeing your favorite creature in such multiples as future abundance!! Wow….with an optimistic thought such as that, success is sure to be on the horizion! The cookies look awesome and I bet they taste good! I like the heart one with the initials!

  3. When I read your posts I feel like time is standing still and we are still young girls within walking distance of each other. You are still the best friend i ever had!!

  4. I feel so excited for your future endeavours and cannot help but think how lucky are any newlyweds to have you as their event planner! I too adore turkeys and I always feel God in those moments of special sightings of wildlife. A mother moose with two tiny newborns was one of my most miraculous sightings from my truck on a remote country road as I stopped and marvelled in awe. Your posts always brighten my heart! Blessings, Gina
