Took quite a few pictures when we went to Costa Rica in early February this year. Got reprints of some of the better ones. Usually we have a bank reunion of people who went on the trip with us. Wanted to have some to share with others. Decided to have the best photo enlarged to enter at our county fair this year.
Several weeks after returning home, the reunion was held. We couldn't go as we had a schedule conflict. By that time, I couldn't find the photos either. Where could they be? I looked a lot of places. No photos.
I started to pray for our vacation pics, "God, you will have to help me find them!" I can recall rattling on more than one occasion. And I tossed in that I would need to find them by the time our county fair rolled around.
While I know that God answers all of our prayers, I also know that even He can't rescue what could have wound up in our burn pile or in the recycle pile.
Then yesterday came. We had an appointment with our insurance rep and I had to dig out filed bills from last year to get some much needed information. And there the sack of photos and few souvenirs were!!
Judging of the photos for our county fair? Entry is on Wednesday (tomorrow)!!
Made me laugh and be reminded one more time how God does things. We hear often that God is generally not late nor early, but always on time with the answers to our prayers!!
One more time I am a winner; whether my picture rates or not. Fun to know just how much God cares for and takes care of us. Better than we can take care of ourselves.......
Psalms 40:1 - 5  (portions): "I waited patiently for God to help me; then He listened and heard my cry.....He has given me a new song to sing, of praises to our God. Now many will hear of the glorious things He did for me, and stand in awe before the Lord, and put their trust in Him....O Lord my God, many and many a time you have done great miracles for us and we are ever in your thoughts. Who else can do such glorious things?"
