I know that this blog is on the internet for anyone to see. That creeps some people out, but I find it interesting to think that a lot of different people could read my blog.
Since we are living in the farm house right now, we are answering the phone and listening to messages, since they could be something farm related. And the other day, we had the strangest message I had ever heard.
It was a little hard to hear at times, but what we could make out from it was that someone in Ontario had been reading my blog and was trying to connect with me for some reason and wondered if the people at this number were related. This person would try again later and did not leave a number for me to get back.
I was scared at first. Of course, it would be easy to get the farms phone number it is the only number listed under "Talen." But why would someone who has read my blog want to talk to me? What did I do wrong? Who did I offend? Or was it something good, like an offer to write or to make cards or read and review books. The ideas were pretty endless and I had no clue which was the right one.
Well, yesterday we got our answer and it turned out to be really cool and not scary at all.
It was a couple from Ontario who are looking at moving to the Island and somehow they came to my blog and thought that our story was really neat. And they are coming out to Island again sometime to look at property and they really want to meet us. We spoke on the phone with them for quite sometime and learned they are Christians and they have visited the Island several times and they are pretty sure they want to retire here. They feel it is a pretty big move, but since we moved farther, it reassured to them that they could make the move too.
So a random, interesting example of how God can take what you are doing and use it bless some people you do not even know. So, I will keep on blogging and trust that my words will continue to bless people.
