Yesterday we experienced another answer to prayer. The past 10+ years our family has looked forward to 'corn day' each summer. Those of you who enjoy canning and freezing probably know what I'm talking about: the full day of picking, husking, de-silking, blanching, cutting and bagging dozens of ears of corn. And then piling it all in the freezer with the pleasant thought that this will taste so-o-o-o-o good during the winter months!
Well, this summer it was beginning to look like we'd be unable to get any in the freezer -- first, our friend, who always planted extra for us is no longer farming. And secondly, even if corn was available, we haven't been home enough to have a 'corn day'.
But the Lord surpised us -- not only with corn, but with friends to work with! We were so blessed to be able to spend yesterday with a dear family near Kalona, Iowa, and as it all worked out, we ended up with a 'corn day'!!! A good reminder to us that there is no request too small for the Lord to hear and answer. Another evidence of His love and care!
