HE Did It Again

I just have to boast about God today!

So, last week at work we were having a Fourth of July party. (Had it Friday, because the office was closed Monday.) And for weeks leading up to the party I was trying to find volunteers who could come in and help me set up, serve, and clean up. It isn't a huge job, but it is definitely too much for me to do on my own.
So, anyway, I was trying to find volunteers.
And I was striking out. What? Does everyone have to leave for the holiday weekend Friday morning??? I was holding out hope for one young lady who was going to call me early Friday to let me know if she'd be able to make it, or not.

Friday morning as I was having my quiet time I prayed and told God, I know You know my needs today - at work and at home. And I know You can meet them perfectly. I'm asking You, God, to do just that.
HE has always been faithful. HE has always provided what I needed. And often times HE has waited until nearly the last minute to show me how things are going to work out. (Seems God isn't very concerned about my desire to have everything planned out way ahead of time. Cuz I wouldn't need to trust so much that way.)

Fast forward a few hours...

I heard a page that I had a phone call on line one, so I went over to answer the call. It was Daisy, and I hoped she had good news for me.
"Can you come this afternoon?" I asked.
"Yes, I can," was her reply, and my heart did a little jump for joy. I just knew God would come through for me!
At that moment I was staring at the clock on the phone, and my smile got even bigger. Guess what time it was?


I'm not kidding!

Oh, also, I thought of you this morning as I was trying to squeeze out the very last drop of lotion from a tube & thought, "Karen!" my scissors, snipped off the end & voila! *wink*

Have a GREAT day!

I love "just-in-times"! :)

Leah - Yay, God, indeed!

Beth - Yes, He is always on time. Not always my time, but I'm learning to flow with that.

Jodi - That's exactly what I thought. Seemed to me the 11:11 was there just so I would know HE was in on it.

Patricia - I love that you cut open your tube to get more lotion. Glad I could be part of your morning without even realizing it. *wink*

Kathy - Yes. I love it when God shows me HE's got it!
