The gift of interrupted plans

2014-07-07_0002
I am not always grateful when "my plans" are interrupted, but this moment in time is a gift for which I am thankful.  
My plan to take pictures of Lily on the beach at sunset were diverted by strong winds and a little girl who needed to find a bathroom. :))
The closest stop was my parent's church.  After we took care of business, I decided to swing around back to show Lily the flowers on my grandmother's grave.    
I have shared many stories about my Mimi with Lily and she knows how special she was to me growing up.

What I thought was an inconvenience turned out to be a magical moment in time.  
The light was beaming down and my Mom was able to tell her about my sweet Mimi and the legacy she left our family.    
2014-07-07_0003Today is my Mimi's birthday. 

I am reminded of her quiet gentle spirit...her creative talents...her humility...the times I would walk down to tell her goodnight and hear her praying for us by name...her love for the Lord...her servant heart...her gratitude to others.  

I wish she could have known Lily.  She would have loved Lily's laugh, her funny sense of humor, her smile and the songs she loves to sing.  

So grateful for diverted plans that remind me of God's desire to orchestrate even the smallest details to show me more about His unfailing love.  
    
"The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps."  
Proverbs 16:9
