My Mom always said - "We Plan, God Laughs :)" What saying do you remember from your Mom?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate

We Plan, God Laughs........Just a " Mom-ism " (something my Mom used to say that I will remember forever and even find myself repeating to those I love).

 I thought I'd share this one ( there are many) with ya'll this morning. My Mom was full of one liner sayings or little stories that stick (like parables, with life lessons). Though I miss her at times - I have the precious gift of these memories!

 Sometimes, we make plans for a certain goal or dream around our time frame, and pray about it....then life happens and we may even get alittle disappointed for a bit if it seems not to turn out as we envisioned. But people of faith persevere in prayer - even for years, and God's plan prevails and is revealed.                                                                                                                               Legions of Angels

God sees our faith and in His own time, not ours - answers....and sometimes the blessing is like the parting of the RED sea......The path becomes clear. Where it once was unfathomable on how to cross the barriers presented before us...now becomes a simple walk !

I'm sure He chuckles when we exclaim how things finally seem to just fall right into place!

We Plan, God Laughs 

Life brings unexpected surprises - not when you ask for them...when God is ready to deliver them!

I'm sure you all could share a favorite"Mom-ism" too...feel free to post it here or email me when you do!

Have a Blessed weekend.

Sincerely,

Grace

Often, though disappointed at the time, we find that we were blessed because that prayer was not answered the way we wanted. The house we thought we wanted turned out to be someone else's nightmare. Or a better home became available later.

Your Mom sounds like my kind of person. You are blessed to have precious memories.

One of my mom's sayings was always after I asked a question...she would say "To make little girls ask questions, worked didn't it?      I have often found myself repeating that to my children....it's a vicious cycle.

So much truth in your mom's saying.  I look back at so many things that I thought should go a certain way but God had other (better) plans.  I'm sure He laughs a lot at my "good" planning.

When frustrated with me mom would always say " I hope when you grow up you have a daughter who acts just like you do ".

I have no children.

Helo Donna - yes I am Blessed! and that is good for you that God kept you away from a nightmare of a home - your story reminds me....we've had a few deals where cliints felt bad it did not work out for the 1st home they put andoffer on ...but later when one even better (price, terms and ammenties) came along they agreed that the 1st plan was not meant to be!

thanks for your comment.

Sincerely,

Grace

My upbringing was pretty strict, but I do remember my mom telling me to shape up and quit being the sap of the family tree. Some how, that really kicked in to me. No resin left on this body. God is a wave of energy that we all should always notice and tap into.

Mom told me; " If you meet a guy in a bar and end up getting married to him,  someday when he doesn't come home on time, you'll know where he is".  Aren't Mom's wise????
