After my previous post yesterday morning, I had a minor meltdown and cried out to God begging Him to make Himself known to me. I needed something in my desperation and told Him that I would be purposeful in searching for Him throughout my day in all that I did. I had plans to go to the Tot Trade for the presale (that probably led a little to my meltdown...I wanted to be shopping for pink, too). By the way, the Tot Trade is an insanely huge & overwhelming children's consignment experience. I seriously considered just not going but I have just about nothing for a baby boy since I have an ebay addiction and have sold just about all of Wyatt's fancy clothes online to make money for that current season clothes and gave away everything else to some other families who needed it more than my rubbermaid container. So, I pulled myself together and went...list in hand. I didn't expect Jesus to show up on a tot trade rack but He did...enter exhibit A.
First, the little long-sleeved onesie caught my eye because of the message embroidered on it. "Jesus loves me..."...well, there He is in baby blue thread telling me that this baby is from Him and a precious part of the plan He has for our family. Then, I noticed something else attached to the back of it.
Yes, my dears, a precious matching little newborn gown. So, I glanced at the consignment tag to check the price...$5! You've got to be kidding me...this is....
BRAND NEW & my FAVORITE baby brand that I just mentioned in my post earlier that morning. (Friends, this was the only Kissy Kissy on the newborn rack & I couldn't believe it hadn't been snagged up at the pre-presale the night before! I'm guessing the two of these together retail at around $50 or more.)
Oh, how God shows up! He's so there and He's in control of all of this!
Thank you, Sweet Jesus, for this gift from You! Thank you for truly knowing my heart and knowing exactly how to show me you care. I love you!
