Unexpected Blessing from an Unwanted Encounter

From Nancy in Washington state:

Widow Blessings~


During Grief Share 2 years ago one of the assistant facilitators came up to me and said, "Nancy I want to be your friend." She hands me her number, and shockingly at the same time in private she "confessed" that when she first met me she DIDN'T LIKE ME! 

I thought, that's COOL-- I didn't like me either when I entered the class! lol.

She was a widow and has since remarried and we don't visit much as she is a newlywed. I reached out a couple weeks ago and thought I would ask her to lunch. We set a date for yesterday. 

My confession, as the date came closer was  I SO DIDN'T WANT TO GO. No real reason but I prayed "Lord, forgive my selfish heart," and in obedience I went. 

We greeted each other and ordered and chatted and even giggled a while. Then she gently touches my arm and confesses, "NANCY I told my husband I didn't want to come to lunch with you." 


She just felt like staying home gardening. I put my hand over my mouth--literally--when she finished.

I said NEITHER DID I !!!!!!!! 

WE LAUGHED SOOOOOOO HARD! And we both agreed AREN'T WE GLAD WE DID SOMETHING WE DIDN'T WANT TO DO! 

Confessions between Friends 💞 continues to Bless. The Lord Blessed our visit in soooooo many beautiful ways. Even though she has remarried we will always be friends!

SOMETIMES YOU JUST GOTTA DO WHAT YOU MAY NOT WANT TO DO!!!!!!!💞
