First, before sharing the answer to prayer, I want to say how grateful I am to the Lord Jesus for His daily provision. Do we take for granted having a home to live in, an awesome family, food, vehicles to transport us places, doctors to care for our health needs, police to protect us, soliders who are placing their lives on the line for our freedom, and the list goes on? I am so grateful for each one of those, but ultimately, I am grateful for my salvation in Jesus Christ. May we take the time to express our gratefulness to the Lord Jesus for each area He has blessed us in. So, now on to the story.
It has been on our (the aunts) hearts since March to purchase a playground set for the nieces (and nephew!). At first, we considered options such as the ones Lowe’s sells, but to get the kind of equipment we wanted, it would be too expensive. So, Anna put the request in her prayer journal, and she began to faithfully pray. In addition, we as a family prayed about it. We kept our eyes open for a used one, but even those were either not what we were looking for or still too much. Last week, Christopher saw a used set go up for sale, and it was just what Anna had envisioned! A church was upgrading their play equipment for a huge new set, and the old set had to be out by this coming week. You all know what life has been like around here (life=full speed!), so it seemed it would be a squeeze to disassembleÂ the entire thing, load it up, and bring it home, but it worked out that Wednesday the guys had a little break on house work while the polyurethane was drying on the floor.
After lunch Wednesday, Anna, John, Jesse, Â and Christopher headed in to Kansas City. They spent all afternoon taking apart the playground and loading it into John’s truck and trailer. It was hot, hard work. But, amazingly, it all fit in one load, and it now resides at our house.
Setting it up will happen later this fall when we’re home. We are praising the Lord for His provision! Lord willing, the Maxwell grandchildren here, and those to come, will greatly enjoy coming to the “Auntie’s” Park.
“The meek shall eat and be satisfied:Â they shall praise
the Lord that seek him:Â your heart shall live for ever.”
Psalms 22:26 Â
