A blog sharing my love of God, the love He has for women and my frustration that the Church often doesn't realise this


A notebook found and three miracles remembered

Posted by God Loves Women on March 16, 2012 at 9:40 AM

Today I came across an old notebook entitled “Things God has Done”, from 2006.  I sat down and had a read and came across the following story that I had forgotten even happened!

To put it in context, I was living in the north of England, (in a place where they say “ooh it’s canny day”, a single parent of two small children, the youngest who regularly needed hospital care dues to his prematurity.  I was living on benefits (and regardless of what the Daily Mail says, this is *not* much money at all!) and generally finding life rather a struggle.

My tumble dryer blew up the other day.  It started smoking and stopped working.  I phoned my dad (who is very good at mending things, although lived two hours away at the time) and he told me there was no point in getting someone in to fix it, it wouldn’t be worth it and I should just buy a new one.  A new one was going to cost £100 and I couldn’t afford it so I had a bit of a pray and then moved on.

A few days later I was waiting for a friend to visit pushing the kids along and suddenly realised that my entire handbag had fallen off the pram and I couldn’t find it *anywhere*!!  I was utterly panicked, it had my keys, purse and the rest of my meagre life in it, and it was completely lost!

Miracle Number 1 occurred in the form of my friend arriving in her car and driving me to the letting agents to get a spare key and then driving me to the key cutting shop, so that I could actually enter my own house.  Without her it would have taken hours to get buses from place to place.

Miracle Number 2 occurred in the form of the honest man who found my bag and through marvellous detective skills had discovered my home telephone number and phoned me to offer to drop the bag back.  I was utterly delighted, as you can imagine.

Miracle Number 3 occurred when the honest man arrived to drop off my bag and as we got talking it turned out he was a qualified electrician who had a quick look at my tumble dryer and informed me he could fix it for only £15!!!  God is so so good!!

See it's so important to remember the blessings that God sends our way :)

I found a cheque from HMRC that had been squirrelled away somewhere by mistake but back in November when I was supposed to receive it I'd have probably used it to get better Christmas presents or something but having lost it then found it I can use it for more sensible things :)
