Cross country skiis….
Since it has been snowing a fair amount and my grandson likes skiing, we starting looking for boots so he could cross country ski. I finally realized that even though I couldn’t find our old boots, it really didn’t matter as they would not have fit. He has larger feet than my husband or son.
Then I began to start trying to find someone to borrow from. I hit a headend with everyone I talked to at church.
I remembered a guy who loved to ski and called him, but he was busy. However, he did call me back and gave me some suggestions. I decided it was not too late so I called his first suggestion and behold, this guy has the exact size of feet that my grandson has and he offered to loan boots, skiis and poles. I was delighted. He told me to come to his house between 7 and 8 am and I told him no problem.
I also decided to get up early and make some chocolate chip peanutbutter banana muffins and take some with us when we go over in the morning.
I am so thankful for the way God has provided for our need. It wasn’t a desperate need, but one I wanted to fill for my grandson and I truly thought that if I just kept asking, God would lead me to the right person.
I would never have thought of calling this guy in a million years, but my call to the guy I did know gave me the answer I needed. I love the way God works in our world to provide what we need and at times like this time, what we want.
Father, you are so good to me and I am so thankful. I love you. Thank you for helping me find the skiis and boots we needed. Amen.
