Treasure Found

Last Tuesday I went to my favorite little thrift store. As I was shopping I saw a reel push mower I had been kind of interested in it but was a little worried about being able to use it. Anyway a little later another lady was looking at it and the older woman that runs the store- took it outside to show her how it worked. And I went out to watch as well. She was able to push it and that is when I knew that I should be able to use it as well. Only problem was - now this other lady was interested in it. Well I told the lady that runs the store- that I was very interested in it - and if the other lady decided that she did not want it - to let me know.

Well I could have kicked myself for not moving forward to checking it out when I had first seen the mower. And I learned a valuable lesson. If I see something I am interested in - be sure and check it out.

On my way home - I prayed and ask God - that if it were His will to work it out that I could get the mower. I knew it was a long shot, but left it in God's hands. Then I spent some time weed eating and then it was time to go. My son was going to take me to Cracker Barrel for hemming some stuff for his girl friend. I never did hear back from Becky(lady at the store) so I figured that I had just totally lost out.

Fast forward to this morning- I got a phone call from Becky. She was letting me know that the lady had went home and got her husband and he had decided that no they did not need the mower - so it was available. Yay!!! A wonderful answer to prayer! So we went by to get it today!
I am so very happy that we were able to get it. And we got a really good deal.  Only problem is that it is raining today, so no trying it out here today. We have gotten about an inch so far. We are so enjoying the rain! :O)


  1. I grew up using one of those, and it wasn't that pretty I can tell you! LOL It was plain jane~ But it worked. You do have to sharpen the blades of course.

    The best part of the story was your prayer and faith in the LORD to give you what He wanted to. And you waited for His answer! He is so wonderful!!! hugs~

  2. Yea! A nice way to save some gas, and get some exercise and a nice yard--all at the same time! And I love it when Jesus sends us little surprises like that! :)

  3. So glad you got your little mower - yes, it was meant for you! We still use a push mower and in fact used it today. Here it was very hot ( well, it was hot for us!) but I think it will be cooler as the week goes on. X

  4. How fun! Every time you use that push mower you will be reminded of answered prayers.

  5. What a good end to your story! I hope it works well for you.

  6. So cool! We used to have one of those, and found it worked on a very flat lawn. Then we moved to a place with a not-so-flat lawn, and got rid of it...and now we have a flat lawn again and I wish we had it! So you've found a good thing! Enjoy the rain!!

  7. That mower sure brings back some memories!
    Such a good example of having patience and waiting for God to help.
    Happy to hear you are getting some rain,,,us too!
    Blessings and love~ Lisa
