Ain't that just like God?

The title of this post is a saying that my Granny Forbes used to use whenever she could see God’s hand at work.
I am currently in Houston for my 3rd trip to MD Anderson.  I have received blessing after blessing from the moment the plane landed here in Houston.  The sweet young lady who was helping me with a wheelchair to get to the rental car shuttles (if I walk long distances, I really hurt) asked me why I was visiting Houston.  When I told her I was going to MD Anderson, she told me she would pray for me.
While I was at the rental car lot, a gentleman in front of me asked why I was visiting Houston.  He said he would pray for me too.  Then, before he walked out to his car, he asked if he could stop and pray for me.  He prayed the sweetest prayer for healing and protection while I was here.  He also spoke scripture over me.  It was a precious time.
As I was following the GPS directions to get to my hotel…haven’t mastered that part yet…I went by a grocery store that I don’t remember seeing when I’ve been here before.  I was so thankful because I was getting pretty tired by that time. I was concerned that by the time I got to the part of town where I needed to be, I’d be too tired to go to the store.  So I decided to pull in.  I got the groceries I needed and was putting them on the belt to check out.  The checker asked me if I had their discount card.  I told him that I wasn’t from Houston so I didn’t have one.  The lady in front of me, who had not walked away yet said, “Here, use mine.”  Then she leaned over and scanned her card.  It saved me $4.00.  Not much, but every little bit helps.
Today, I had to have blood drawn for lab work and a bone survey (x-ray from head to toe).  I was done with both in just under an hour.  I’ve never had that happen here.  I was able to come back to the hotel & rest for a bit before I met a dear friend who lives in this area for lunch.
So, those are all little things, but together they remind me how much God loves me and wants only the best for me.  Ain’t that just like God?  Yes it is, and for that I am so grateful!

God is so good, isn't he? I, too, have seen God in many things this past week and a half! I have a man named Rich that is at Cleveland Clinic and has prayed with me for my husband, George. George has had atrial fibrillation almost every day since his surgery on April 1st. On April 8th, his heart went back to normal sinus rhythm when I went to lead my Pastor and his wife up to his room....so about the time they got here. Yesterday and today, his heart went back to normal rhythm as this man, Rich, walked past my husband's room. Precisely when he is in the doorway of my husband's room!!! To me, that is such an affirmation of God's presence!!! And I have really needed that encouragement! Our God is truly awesome! Take care! Love and Hugs and know that I am praying for you!!! :-)))Robin Ingle from Erie, PA ringle@roadrunner.com

Ain't that just like God is so true and He does work in mysterious ways that we would not think about.

Will continue to pray for you.
