Stories from the 99 County Bible Reading Marathon Muscatine County (8)

The People Continued;

On Saturday morning, early, Bruce and Susan came to read. They signed up for multiple readings. After their readings, Susan and I began to contemplate what actions to take should we not finish our readings on Sunday.

Not 20 minutes after Susan left, a truck pulled up, and four guys got out. It was a little startling at first, since only Heather and I were there, until we realized that they were all carrying Bibles. They had heard about this event, and they all wanted to read.

It was then, that the plans Susan and I had just talked about was put into use. I gave each a section of the Bible to read, and they began to read, all at once.

Meanwhile three others came to read as well. So 7 people, were reading God’s Word, all at once, spread out but still in ear shot of each other.

Now this sounds like it would be crazy making. But as I walked around and listened I realized, and remember thinking, “This must be what Heaven sounds like.” An orchestra of His Word going forth, from every direction, all at once.

Heavenly perfection.

Some time later in the day, Heather went home for lunch and such. She “just happened” to talk to a neighbor, and discussed what was going on at the court house. Now these neighbors had waved before, exchanged greetings, but never really chatted. This neighbor, said she would go down later and check it out.

A little while later, I met Patti, who “just happened” to be the  mom and grand mom to the guys in the truck. Hmmm. What are the chances?

She came back, read much, and now it “just happened” that we became friends.

Divine appointments!
