Years ago when I just wanted God to write across the sky in ten foot lessons, I read something that says God speaks to us through other people. I admit to feeling disappointed ... it was too simple ... and at the same time too hard ... and definitely not dramatic enough for a message from GOD! But, years and a little wisdom have proven that truth and I love the confirmation of this quote ... thanks!

Great thought! But wouldn't it be even more wonderful if people said, "I found God in myself in whom God dwells."

this has been my exact experience over the past year and i could never quite put my finger on it, until right now.
