My glasses broke. I have had this happen to me before so it wasn’t something that I panicked over, but it was terribly inconvienent. I was supposed to be picking out colors for carpets, matching them to walls, looking at linoleum, finding styles I liked, etc. It’s difficult to do that when you have to hold the rug up to your nose to see it.
Anyway, I took the glasses to Wal-Mart for a repair job only to find out they don’t do soldering. They sent me to a jewelry store. I’m thinking, “Oh great. Here we go.”
However, the Lord had another blessing in store for me. Caleb (baby) was with me and I took him along in with me. The people that owned the store were very friendly and helpful. They thought Caleb was wonderful (a perfect way to get a mommy to think you are wonderful people) and wanted the chance to hold him. I didn’t have a problem with that and we spent some time chatting and playing with baby. Somehow they found out about Dan and all my kids. My wallet wasn’t exactly updated on pictures yet, but I had a family photo from when Maranatha (2) was a baby. So they got to see how cute my bunch is, and how young. =)
When it was time to go, I’d had a relaxing conversation, my glasses were fixed, guaranteed not to break in the same spot, and they refused to charge me as well! It made me cry. Another couple that didn’t really know me from Adam, that were touched, and led of the Lord to sacrifice a bit on my behalf. This whole situation is doing much to “renew my faith in humanity” and reminds me again and again of the Lord’s omnipotence. God is faithful.
