We just wrappd up Campmeeting. This is an annual event at our church. We have guest speakers come in to preach, teach... it's services twice a day for 6 days. Scrumdiddliumcious! I love it. This year has been amazing. One of the best.
After one of the night services I ran into a friend who had a Canon slung over his shoulder. It was one of those fancy full body ones. He told me the name, but I can't remember. Anyway I proceeded to tell him about my ol' faithful point and shoot & it's recent death. He mourned with me for a bit. After I told him I wanted a Rebel he let me hold his Canon... I think he noticed I was staring. I snuggled, err, I mean fiddled with it a bit & handed it back over. He told me to let him know when I was ready to buy because he could help me find a good deal... he's always on the hunt for new goodies, I'm sure.
The next morning at church Stephen was chatting with him (they work in the media department together). When all of a sudden he told Stephen in an "Oh by the way" kinda manner... I have a Canon Rebel 10D that I want to bless you guys with. He said... "it's the back up to my back up camera. I rarely use it & I feel like you guys should have it." I'm sure Stephen sat there stunned for a bit & then told him that I was going to freak out... actually I'm sure it sounded more like... "dude, my wife is gonna flip"....
This is beyond awesome. God is SO good. We are on a tight budget right now with me going to school and not working and all. I've been talking about & dreaming about a Rebel... knowing that realistically even a used one is not really in the budget for us right now. When Stephen told me about it the first thing I could think of is how good God is. I mean seriously. He cares so much about us.... right down to the teeny weeny details like my
obsessing desire to have a new camera.
I'm so grateful.
He's such a faithful provider!

Thank you Lord!
