This last week I have run into a few people from my past. No, not the scary kind where you try to hide behind the celery stand at the grocery market, or in a clothing rack at the department store, but the good kind. They were those meetings which resulted from two people living their lives in a normal way and intersecting paths at the time God chooses.
Those I met up with from elementary and high school days were not people who played a huge role in shaping who I am today. Those individuals who have done that I could probably count on my ten fingers. But they did play a part. And they did play a significant part. I am not sure why God brought us together for those brief encounters, but I am thankful.
One reason I am thankful is because it reminds me of all the work God has gone through to make me who I am today.
God used these people in my life in my earlier years, and now He brought them back to roll me a little further. I thank God for that.
