Jeremiah 29:11 is a well known and much loved Bible verse, and it’s been on my heart this week. You see, all of my plans have gone out the window, and God’s plan has fallen into place in a remarkable way.
When things go right, some people say that “the planets have aligned.”
Others say things are an “amazing coincidence”
I say it’s God.

In a couple of weeks I will be returning the work force in a part-time capacity. I wasn’t actively looking for a job. The job found me, and the process has been incredibly smooth. It’s a great job working with families and picture books (two of my favourite things). I’m delighted to be able to promote the importance of reading in the early years throughout the community. I’ll fill you in on more of the job details soon.
The thing is, this wasn’t my plan. My plan was to do a bit of supply teaching, or return to the classroom in a year or two when my youngest reaches school age too. I like making my own plans. I like to feel in control. But if I’d stuck with my plan, I would have missed this wonderful opportunity!
His plan fills me with hope for the future. His plan is good.
