Exceedingly Abundantly Above

I tell you what, God never ceases to amaze me! He is able to do abundantly more than we could even ask or think - that is what Ephesians 3:20a tells us(see below) I have shared with you all that my son will get his daughter in July for his summer visit. Well during that visit I will be taking care of her during that time while he works and such. Well I had been thinking that I really needed a few things for outside play and so I thought I would post a little request on Facebook - that if anyone had anything they wanted to get rid of that we would be interested in it. I thought - I would rather buy from my friends and such than total strangers. Anyway my sweet Momma sent over this water table that you see in the first photo. It can be used with sand or water and also a small swimming pool. Then about a week or so after I had posted that a friend on facebook asked if we needed a jungle gym type thing with slides and I said yes we sure do - this is where the amazing part comes in...So I had always wanted to get a jungle gym type thing but the one that I had wanted was a couple of hundred dollars and with all of the stuff going on and my son not having a job for so long there was no way we could get it. So we set up a time this week end to go pick up the said jungle gym and when  saw it- I almost cried!
Do you see it in the back ground of this photo?



Well here it is!


I looked this up and to buy this brand new it was either $799. or $899. Oh my goodness! This lady had bought it for her oldest daughter when she was about 3 years old - so it would be about 15 years old. But it is in very good shape considering its age. And the little bit that she got to play out on it while my sweet granddaughter was here she loved it.
I was so blown away - what I had desired was smaller and so much less money - what God provided for us - was so much more. I am so thankful for God's watch care and providing such a great toy for my granddaughter and I am thankful for generous people that are willing to share with others and brighten their day.
