Problem solved

OK... so quick little background, my husbands car is in need of serious repairs that we aren't going to do, so we are currently a 1 car family. I've been trying to figure out how we are going to shuttle my 9 year old to and from cub scout day camp on the days that Benson needs to work. My parents had said they could help, but they are actually down a car too because my other brothers car broke down and he is borrowing theirs.

SO! During church today, one of the men came up to me and asked if my son was going to camp... yes. "Can my wife pick him up all this week and bring him to camp?"

In my brain I'm wondering why they would want to do that. They would drive past camp to get to our house, then have to backtrack to go to camp.

"Well, yea, if she wants to, but we're out of the way a bit. Not by far, but still."

"I'll let her know and she'll contact you."

OK. That was strange. Or was it. Suddenly I realized that a problem I hadn't even brought to the Lord was being solved right before my eyes. I really didn't know how we were going to work out Benson's work schedule with my parents schedule and my need for a car to get kids where they need to be. A sudden overwhelming feeling of love came over me, and I knew that the Lord is aware of my family and our struggles.

When I talked to this friend, she claimed that her son really wanted to spend some time with my son. :) It will be a total of maybe 5 minutes of car ride they get to spend together. However the blessing of not worrying about the need for a second car for this week... THAT is huge. So here is my public THANK YOU to my friend for being in tune, and to the Lord for knowing my needs even when I don't ask.
