Peas and Carrots

JD has been enjoying peas and carrots this week on his quest to eating solid foods. It was coincidental that I picked these two vegetables to start. Krogers has a limited supply of 1st food vegetables and I grabbed the first 2 that I saw.

But then I thought - how wonderful, we started with two vegetables that were destined to go together. (Think Forrest Gump - "Jenny & I - we were like peas and carrots")

I started to think about things that go together - PB&J, Salt & Pepper, Ham & Eggs, Mandy & Chocolate... Then I began to think about who the innovator was who put those two things together at just the right time to create the perfect combination.

I like to think many things in life happen that way. Only God is the innovator who makes that perfect combination. I know it happened that way with Jon and I. If we had met a few months earlier and under different circumstances, we probably would never have fallen in love. God is perfect in his wisdom and timing!

I like to fool myself into thinking that I am in control by creating a plan with timelines and budgets and ideas. But in reality, someone else is steering my ship. It makes me feel very secure in that knowledge!

Cute post!

I totally agree on the God's timing comment...that is definitely true when it comes to me and Dan!

And who was the great innovator to put Mandy with Chocolate? What a combo!

Great post! Fun picture!

I have to say that mom was the person who put Mandy and chocolate together. Who knew that it would be such a great combo??

I try to look at the hiccups that come up in my schedule as a way of reminding me I am on God's schedule!
