It's a God Thing!

 Good Morning!
I have been thinking about how GOOD the Lord has been to our family. all the Joys and Blessings that He sends into our lives.
I wanted to share one very special one with you today!
As a girl I played with dolls till I was a teenager and then I started babysitting. but I always dreamed of having a American Girl, But never got one.  Our Elhanna girl started getting their doll magazine sometime last spring and right away fell in~love with all the sweet dolls.
 She would fall asleep looking at the magazine! She would talk about each of the dolls. she just loves dolls.
 Jon and I had talked about how much the dolls were, and even though we would like her to have one, with the price... it would never fit into the budget.
 So we talked about it with her and she was okay with just enjoying them from the pictures.
Well, late one evening after we had put the kids to bed we found a box on our front porch addressed to Elhanna. We were puzzled, But saw that the return addy was from American Girl!!

I was so excited for her that I asked Jon if we could wake her to open the box! :) I know bad Mama right.
      We woke her  and I'll let the pictures tell the rest!

Daddy Reading her the card! 

It was Love at first sight!
 But the neatest thing of all was that all the card said was...

To: Elhanna
From: Jehovah Jireh

We were so blown away by the Love that someone as for our sweet little girl, but even more then that, that they were willing to listen to the Holy Spirit.
The Lord is so Good! He knows our needs and takes care of them in some way or another, and He even sees our wants and dreams!
If you are the giver of this sweet gift for our Baby Girl, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I wish you could of seen her face as she opened up the box, and the smile on her face as she carefully places
 " Marie Grace" back in her spot after shes all done playing with her for the day! May the Lord richly bless you!

I'd Loved  to start my week out with hearing to hear some of the stories of the Lord's sweet Blessings in your life. :)

Have a great week!

Thank you for sharing. Such a sweet story and you can see pure joy on your little girls face!

When we were in the process of adopting Megan the company I worked for closed in November 2006 and then we received our referral for Megan February 2007. We really needed that income to complete our savings for our trip to China. One afternoon my father-in-law stopped by. He was sitting at the kitchen table talking while I puttered around the kitchen. After a few minutes he pulled out an envelope and said I want to give this to you to help bring Megan home. I thanked him and put the envelope aside. When Chuck returned home from work we opened the envelope and saw it containted $2000... the exact amount we needed to have enough to travel and bring our baby girl home!
