The Bike Blessing

Today was an eventful one for us. One of our stops was the commissary. The Airman Readiness & Family Center was outside of the building, I was assuming having a drawing of some sort. I only needed a few things before I took the kiddos to the park for park day with our homeschool group. Well, when we came out of the store the two guys at the ARFC table stopped us and asked how old the boys were. Turns out they gave Little Man a FREE bike! I'd thought maybe they were having a drawing or something, but nope they just gave it to him (sometimes I guess it pays to be a military family). It is NICE. The coolest thing is that he's really been needing a new one as he outgrew his. I was floored at how the Lord provided!!! Now I'm praying He'll provide a coat for Princess. I have looked numerous places and still can't find a coat for her!

Oh I can't forget to mention that Princess got a cute teddy bear and Cuddly Boy a cute little Teddy Bear box with all sorts of treasures inside.

When we arrived at the park Little Man exclaimed, "I'm going to tell my friends that Jesus gave me a bike!"

Indeed, God has provided my son!

Wow----------See, by getting to the Park late, I missed out on hearing that story, or did it happen after? Either way, how cool!
Dean is really jamming out to the song on your website right now ("I Love You More")----He LOVES this song, he likes to sing it w/my Honey. Dean also says that he's sorry for giving Gabe gum w/o asking.
I pray that you have another incredibly blessed day, in JESUS Awesome Name---Amen!
Love,
Lynn

Very cool! Have you tried eBay for coats? Or Overstock.com? I usually get mine in the spring at clearance sales or else at the Thrift Store any time of year, tho this year I splurged on a church coat and a warm winter coat at Gap for middle child cuz I figured I'd get many years of use out of both between the two girls...and I got them on sale. =)
