God's provision

The other day my oldest daughter came to me when she couldn't find any pants to wear. Every new season this seems to happen and every season I find the kids' wardrobes lacking in the proper gear. I either realize my kids need new pants or shorts, new short sleeve shirts or sweatshirts. With fall beginning, it is pants that are in short supply in her dresser. God, however is not unprepared or suprised by our needs. He has been prepared for this day since the beginning of time. His love and provision for our latest need truly made me smile with joy and awe. His Plan-
1st My friend would be a part of a big rummage sale and when said sale was over there would be some clothes that didn't sell.
2nd He ordained that my friend would be allowed to take any clothes home that she wanted.
3rd He designed my friend to be thoughtful and somehow know that we might need a few things.
4th He guided her as she picked out clothes in the exact size that my daughter needed!
She now has a brand new pair of jeans and enough pants to last her through fall and winter. I have heard that God provides AND I have seen it with my own eyes but He still suprises me again and again with His care for my family and for me. He doesn't have to make Himself known to me nor does He have to allow me to see a glimpse of His plan BUT He does!

Matthew 6:28 And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.
