God in the "Small Things"

...the no-back bars
Me on Facebook this morning:  While multi-tasking yesterday, I lost my keys. I'd appreciate your prayers about this "little thing". I really need to find them. Don't have time for any more searching.

Yesterday morning before going to spend most of the day with my parents (both in a health care facility),  I prepared some No-Bake Reece's Peanut Butter Bars for my husband to take to a board meeting in the evening, washed the bedding to prepare for an overnight guest, put a meal in the crock pot for my husband,  and tried to spot-clean a quite neglected house.  In the process of changing out purses, I THOUGHT I laid the keys on our kitchen island, but when it was time to go, I couldn't find them.  I spent some frantic minutes searching.  My sister said she'd drive, so I left the house feeling really flustered about their loss.



Both my husband and I searched again before going to bed last night to no avail.  So I posted on Facebook.  Another "early-birder" like myself indicated that she would pray.  I got up from my chair, breathed yet ANOTHER prayer, and  made another round of the house.

For some reason, I tipped one of the chairs at our kitchen table.   Just one!  And I was greeted by the sound of keys hitting the floor.

 How they got there is a mystery.  Why I tipped a chair - and that particular one - is even more unexplainable!  But with a thankful heart and fresh faith and trust in my Heavenly Father, I will travel  to be with my parents again this morning.

  1. God made you tip that particular chair!

    I had a similar incident when the ambulance took my DH to the hospital. I was rushing around here to get dressed to follow them, and could NOT find my keys anywhere. I used his keys and told him I couldn't find my keys so had used his. I found them later on the bedroom floor and was oh so thankful. I don't even remember the circumstances but know that God was watching out for me.

    Your peanut butter bars look delicious. DH would love those. I made a couple of different things like that for him and they were always enjoyed.

    Love and hugs to you dear Rebecca. May you be filled with God's love, peace and strength today. ~ FlowerLady

  5. I always pray when I misplace something and inevitably, like your situation, God answers!

    1. I (just about) always pray about misplaced items, too. And I don't know why every time my prayer is answered, I'm just as amazed as if it were the first time!

  6. Glad you found your keys -- I'll lose something and I swear I looked there and the item wasn't there and the next time I do, it is!!! Strange! I so hate to misplace things -- it flusters me!

  7. Locked my keys in the car last week, my Mom did the same. She forgot her purse recently and on and on....it can be frustrating. It usually occurs for me when I am juggling a lot of different things I feel I can't forget to do. Then something simple gets overlooked...like keys! Thankfully you found them, an obvious answer to prayer!

    1. Yes! It DOES happen when I'm juggling more things than my mind can handle :) It helps to know others have the same frustrations. :)
