Dear Reader, I hope memes for my word, NEVERTHELESS, are meaningful to you this year. I'd love to share a little more about my personal one word for 2019, Nevertheless. For more information about One Word 365, click on the icon below.
What was I thinking? Granddaughters in tow. The first day of "tax-free" school shopping. Peak shopping hours.
It really did seem like a good plan to shop for the church school supply drive. Except for one little detail...
My brother, Hanani, shows up in my town with all kinds of bad news. Being the dutiful brother, I pray about it. And you're never going to believe what the Lord God of Israel did next!

Welcome to the Holy Moments Experiment!
Dear Reader, will you join me in the experiment? I would love it if you would take a few minutes each week to share your favorite holy moment(s) here at Hide & Seek Holy Moments. What do you say, Dear Reader, are you up to turning your random acts of kindness into holy moments?
I don't remember if it was Mama or Daddy, but one of them warned Tom when he asked to marry me that, "What Baby wants, Baby gets."
For better or worse, Tom has taken the road of least resistance frequently during our journey together. (Okay, I'm spoiled. We'll just call it what it is.) So what's that got to do with a holy moment?
I can come up with a vision for simple landscaping. When it comes to the math, (you know, that whole converting cubic feet to square feet thing) I'm hopeless. Trust me, it's not for lack of trying.
So, we bought mulch and sand for the latest project. People, I measured. I looked at conversion charts. Read articles about depths for each. This part of landscaping is just not my gift.
After nearly allowing myself to get heatstroke working in the flower bed, and running out of mulch and sand, I had to ask for Tom's help. (Note to self: the density of sand makes a smaller bag MUCH heavier than a larger bag of mulch.)
Stopping by Lowe's (my summer BFF) after work, Tom was starting to load sand on the cart when God smiled. One of those workers who really mean it when they ask, "May I help you?" showed up and loaded five out six bags onto the cart, and all of them into the car. Score!
And Dear Reader, God taught me a lesson through Tom's holy moment. It doesn't matter whether we're the one offering or receiving it. The grace and blessing of a holy moment can splash all over someone around us. It's a two-for:)
Has someone's holy moment blessed you, Dear Reader? Please share with us! How are the blessings spreading in your corner of the world?
Seriously, I really wasn't looking for trouble. Why would I? Not with the cushy job I had. Sure, it came with a little stress, what job doesn't? But I'd worked hard to get to where I was. I wasn't look for a change of scene.
