I had a wonderful prayer time time in the chapel after the girls left for class.
As I walked to the parking lot I saw the cutest little tulips blooming in the island-- no doubt the work of some generous parent.
Then, as I pulled out, there was my sweet Lizzie setting up cones in the parking lot for recess use later. (her job) I was able to roll down my window and comment on the beautiful day.
Then I stopped for gas. The station I stopped at has good coffee so I thought I'd treat myself. I was using my debit card to pay at the pump. Alas, a check of my wallet revealed NO CASH except for a dime or nickel or two so I offered the desire to the Lord instead.
Then... I said to myself, "If the Lord wants to give me a cup of coffee there will be a dollar in my pocket. I reached in my back pocket and THERE WAS A DOLLAR!!!!
I kid you not. This actually happened! I thanked Jesus, all teary-eyed. It was just a cup of coffee but sometimes the Lord just really touches you, you know? He really is there and aware of even a hair falling from our heads.
I thought the coffee might be a little more than a dollar but figured I could scrounge up enough change for the rest. But, no. God knew how much the coffee was. I looked up at the prices to see that on Mondays it's 85 cents for any size cup.
Blessed be the Lord. I thank you my awesome Savior for knowing and caring about even the most trivial of my thoughts and desires.
You are so good, so good to me.
