God Provides

  Aaron's snowpants were getting pretty ratty looking not long ago. Last year they got some holes in them and so one day when he was over at my parents Mom grabbed them and patched them (As I was rather re-occupied with house building).

   But this year they now had holes in the patches, the zipper broke and they were really to little. It was time for them to go. I thought I had more for him in storage but I looked all over for them and couldn't find them. Aaron and I had decided we would make him a pair because I hate spending money unless I truly need to and I had some nice heavy carhart looking material that we could use - we just had to figure out the inside layer. I had taken the material out to get ready to make them one day but we didn't get to it that day after all and the next day we went to homeschool Co-op.

  Some of our friends that have given us many hand-me-downs for the boys over the years were at co-op too. Guess what they had for us (among other things) that day? Of course,  a snowsuit in Aaron's size. Their youngest had outgrown it and had reluctantly given it up (I guess the boys -theirs and ours - really like the full snowsuit) and so Aaron was blessed to receive it.

  I just thought it was so cool that just the time we were really in need of new snow gear for Aaron, that was what was given to us. I makes me realize yet again how God is truly aware of every single thing going on in our lives and He abundantly provides.

  I should have a picture of Aaron in his "new" snowsuit but I don't. But it is keeping him warm every day as he does his chores and plays outside and he really likes it.

That's great news! I love hand-me-downs. We usually end up buying 2nd hand because all my friends have children long grown :)

I'm never ceasing to be amazed at how the Lord knows the littlest details in our lives, and takes care of us... it teaches me that He knows the big details too.. and what a comfort that becomes! :)

I Absolutely Love when God gives us gifts in His timing that we need but don't always expect. They can bring such joy to our lives and it is very hard not to see Him working through it. Thanks for sharing!
