I’m having trouble narrowing it all down to one story.
I could tell you of a sweet little boy who wanted a sand dollar to take home from his seaside vacation. After walking the beach a long time without finding any, he asked God to send just one, if it was okay. Around the very next bend the beach was littered with them. God used hundreds of sand dollars to love on one little boy. His extravagant generosity and goodness still speak to me decades later.
Or I could tell of paying property taxes our first year of farming. Naturally, the taxes are due right before harvest when farmers have no money. Taxes were due Friday. It was Thursday. I told God I was writing the check for the taxes but as He was the one wanting us to farm then it was up to Him to supply the tax money. I wrote the check, then went to get the mail. Lo and behold, there in the mailbox was a check from some program Clinton had signed up for who knows when, that covered the entire bill. Our good God taught me the truth of "always on time, rarely early."
Or I could tell of God bringing friends into my life so we could walk through our similarly-difficult seasons together. I could speak of my miracle sons and my incredible husband, of loving family and invaluable friends. I could regale you with tales of my recently-discovered passions of drumming and kayaking. I could relate countless times where I had exactly what I needed exactly when I needed it.
I could…but I’m sure you have your own stories. We would love for you to share them.
