God Provides Yet Again
I was busy in my kitchen sometime last week, and in the middle of baking or cooking or something involving a hand mixer, my mixer broke. Again.
I had just purchased this mixer, too. It seems we go through them very quickly. This was the first use on that mixer and I finished the bread I was making by hand.
If I were the type of cook who only makes cake mixes on birthdays, that would be one thing. But I'm not. My kids are on a special diet and I make everything from scratch in order to afford said special diet.
Here's how it went:
"Lord, my mixer broke again. Lord, I'm going to be bold and ask you for a Kitchen Aid. Lord, I know we can't afford one, and I don't know if this is a need or a want, but Lord, I'm just going to ask, and if you provide me with a Kitchen Aid, it will be a miracle and you will get the glory. But Lord, it will have to be YOU, because we don't have the three hundred dollars it would take for this appliance."
Whenever I thought of wanting a Kitchen Aid mixer, I said "Lord, if it's your will, you can do this, but it will have to be You, etc."
That night, I told Wes I was praying for a Kitchen Aid mixer. About thirty seconds later, he says: "How much was that mixer your are praying for?" "Three hundred dollars, why?"
He hands me a very unexpected Christmas check from a relative for that exact amount.
My Kitchen Aid arrived today. Mine's red.
GLORY TO THEE, O LORD! GLORY TO THEE!!!!!
