Gracious

Well, less than 12 hours after I put together the list of items we could use to prepare for our new daughters, this is what our living room looked like. A veritable explosion of answered prayer.

Along with a bike and a dresser, you’ll see two winter coats, a headboard for a single bed, 3 pair of PJ’s, and 3 dresses, along with many other items of clothing including shirts, pants, shorts, skirts, jackets, capris, swimsuits, underwear and socks. Most of this is just right size-wise for our new girls, but there’s also a whole bag of clothing for our little girls.

Care to guess what all this cost?

I’d have been quite delighted to find all of this for $50.

But it cost us…….

Not one penny.

A friend saw the need, asked a few friends who had girls older than ours, went around and collected things, and dropped it all off at our house this morning. I didn’t even have to go yard saling!

I was expecting that I’d be able to find at least some of these things at yard sales this weekend. What I didn’t expect was to have it all delivered to my front door –for free — within 12 hours of making my list.

God is amazingly gracious.

And often He does some of his best work through kind friends.

Thanks, God!

Thanks, Beth!

Thanks, Beth’s friends!
