Tim and Lisa are coming to visit us, arriving today and staying for a week. It is a special visit as it will be the first time that we will see them since Tim's cancer diagnosis in December.
It is amazing to me to see how things began to be set in place for this visit back in August. Yes, August.
Things began to be set in motion back then when Lisa's grandparents traveled from Canada to Kentucky for the wedding. They flew into Cincinnati and were to fly from there to Lexington. Something happened (that I don't even recall now but I am sure they do!) but they ended up taking a taxi from Cincinnati to Lexington -- an 80 mile trip! What an inconvenience for them! To compensate them for their trouble the airline gave them two tickets to use at a later time. Because they did not plan to use the tickets, they gave them to Tim and Lisa and that is how these young kids are able to make this trip to Kentucky.
I know that it means a lot to Tim that Tim and Lisa are coming. What a great blessing to us, and to think that it all began to take shape back in August! We just never know the purposes for the things that happen when they are happening! What a beautiful life lesson.
Thank you Lisa's grandparents! I am so sorry things were so difficult for you back in August but thank you for enduring so that young Tim and Lisa could come to visit. We are thankful for all that happened...back in August.
