I have so much going on right now, but I just wanted to stop in and share a bit about my morning!
I'm not a super religious person,don't attend church or bible studies, but I do believe in God and believe he works in glorious and mysterious ways! ( by the way spell checker should insist on GOD being capitalized)anywho...
I am a member of this small local group called High Desert Freecycle. This group consists of people wanting to give away or receive free stuff from paint to clothes. It is a wonderful group....the less that goes into our landfills, the better. (and its all free)
Last night I replied to a message by a woman who had a chair she was giving away, among other things. She emailed me back with the address and all the details. So this morning, as I was waking up...I heard a comment in my head, that my brother had made about himself, and how he will not take free things from others, because there might be someone out there that really needs them. I have been hearing this comment softly in my head, and it was weighing heavy on my heart, so first thing this morning, I thought...ooh I'm going to stop and get this woman some doughnuts...or maybe a nice bouquet of flowers...
As I went into the store, I thought NO! a plant, I'm just gonna grab a plant, they grow, and flourish! They don't just die like flowers....and maybe shes on a diet and can't eat donuts...
So a plant it was.
With my 2 boys in tote we ventured down a rugged dirt road, to get some free stuff. Trevor was in charge of the plant to make sure it didn't topple over. Brody was in charge of making every noise possible....while we hit every bump...lol We pulled up to the house, and she met us at the driveway. Trevor rolled down his window and handed her the plant. She said thank you! She looked as if she was going to cry, I got out of the truck to grab the things, and she told me a little story about how all of these things were her mothers, and she had passed away recently. And she is going to be planting a beautiful garden in memory of her. We read the tag on the plant, and it CAN be planted outside....can you believe it!?!
So amazing! The kindness that comes from him! This made my day. On the ride home, I was explaining to my sponge of a 6 year old what had just happened, and he got it....and just smiled...he said " you didn't even know, so god told you in your heart"
That there is a miracle! and my definition of true parenting....How does that saying go..."It takes a village to raise a child" ...or just the help of the Almighty Father!
Have a beautiful Day!
Ooooh and I'll be back later to share what I got!
