A Time to Be Forgetful: ***AN UPDATE***

Shortly after I wrote THIS POST I was so bothered by the fact that these items had been lost....on top of not being able to find all of Noah & Owen's summer clothes from last year (which I couldn't mention in the last post because really, that's my fault they were misplaced!) so I decided to just give these matters to the Lord and pray. One day into praying for these items I was cleaning the playroom and found Noah's glasses. PTL! Then 3 days after praying for the remaining items I was in the attic getting a suitcase for a weekend trip we were taking and couldn't believe how heavy it was. I opened it up to find ALL the summer clothes I thought I had lost...don't even ask me why they were there, I have no idea! PTL! Then one week after praying for the jacket Owen comes in the door from school and says to me, "Mom, I found Noah's jacket". I thought he was talking about the fleece jacket Noah had left at school (I know, right!) so just said, "O, great Owen, thanks". When I saw Noah come inside with his LLBean winter jacket I was the most excited person! Not only because it was found but because God showed me that week how awesome the power of prayer is! Sometimes we can know these things but not always believe in it...take it from me....don't ever doubt the power of prayer! God is listening and he wants us to come to him with our burdens, struggles and cares! He doesn't always give us the answer we want but this week I am so thankful His answer was yes and we found all our missing things!

  1. My mother always would ask me, when I'd lost something, if I'd prayed to find it. Thanks to her I always pray to find things (and I prayed for you to find your things) - it seems I think of a new place to look after praying. I'm so glad you found all that stuff!
