On Tuesday, June 11th I posted a blog titled “Hissy Fit.” In said blog I mentioned as a passing thought that my curling iron had broken the week before we left for vacation. This was not the primary point of my blog, just a little bit of back-story to lead up to the main event. The next day, in the early afternoon, I received a random package addressed to me. I knew I wasn’t expecting anything so my curiosity was peaked. Once I opened the box, I quickly realized it was full of goodies from my sweet Aunt Lisa who has a knack for surprising me with her thoughtfulness and generosity. There were all sorts of fun little girly things in there for me and my little ladies. But here comes the good stuff….at the very bottom of this overflowing box was not 1, not 2 but 3 curling irons!!! Seeing as how I had just posted about my broken pretty hair maker the day before, there was no way for her to have known that I needed a new one. But I know who did …my Jesus. (Just in case you are still doubting me, I did ask her and she mailed the package a couple days BEFORE my post.)
Now, this may seem like a random coincidence to some people, but for me, it was a gift to me not only from my Aunt Lisa, but from Jesus-both who love me enough to think of me in the big and small things. If this doesn’t bring a smile to your face, I don’t know what will! Keep your eyes peeled, you never know when God will drop a blessing in your lap, or in my case, on your doorstep!
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power at work in us, to Him be glory….”
(Ephesians 3:20 NKJV)
I would say sending me three curling irons when I really only needed one is going exceedingly and abundantly above what I would have asked or imagined. If you could see me now I’m doing my happy Jesus dance!
