God Does Nice Work

I have a friend (a second mom, really) that says that all the time. And God does do nice work. He really does. It isn't always easy to remember it or see it clearly. And I am beginning to think it is OK to just try to get it, and try to see it. I mean, let's face it- we're human. We simply are not ever going to understand God. Sometimes I think maybe I should move along from that goal and try just to understand what little I can and be comforted by that. 

It's little things that always get me and bring me back. Like this:

I mean, really! Birds in a perfect smile. Go figure. I look at that and think, "Hi God!"

My faith is a quiet faith, a peaceful faith. I don't do rowdy and wound up well. Excitement, sure, I like my share of that. And joy- lots of joy. But what I love most is when God sends me those little messages here and there. This week he answered a prayer I had for a friend. It really had nothing to do with me at all, just a little wish I had for her life. And He answered it. It wasn't earth shattering or life altering. It was little, but something I wanted for her. And that just set me back right for a while. That one little thing he took the time to arrange in her life so perfectly. Hmm... God does nice work!

All About Ashley

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
