I have been so blessed lately. For those of you who don't know I lost my wedding rings in September. As you can imagine I was very sad. I knew the Lord had the power to help me find them. So I got down and started to pray and ask for help finding them. Well I felt so peaceful that I just knew I couldn't worry. And then another week passed and I still wouldn't be able to find my rings. So I would pray about them again. Again I would feel peace. Well this cycle continued until I decided I just needed to trust in the Lord. It really was a weird feeling because I knew I should be worried and frustrated and sad because I had lost my wedding rings. There is no way we could afford to replace them and darn it they are just so sentimental to me. But every time I tried to get upset about them I would think about the answer I had received and know I needed to trust in the Lord. Well about a week ago I decided I would just a fake ring to wear, so people would know I'm married. Because let's face it without a wedding ring I truly look like a 17 year old teenager. ( Believe me it embarrassing when teenagers think you go to the same High School as they do.)
Anyway I decided I would go to the store while Mike was at his Saturday morning class. When I got up that day I felt like I needed to clean out our storage/junk room. This was something that I had felt like I needed to do for weeks, but kept putting it off. Well I bit the bullet and cleaned and organized the darn room. It took a few sweet hours of perspiration and looking at old memories. As I was cleaning, I was throwing away useless things we were holding onto. I came across a few catalogs for furniture we had got in the mail and put them off to the side to look at later. When I finished the rest of the room the two catalogs were still sitting to the side where I had left them. I decided to look through them before getting rid of them. I went in to the study and sat down with them. As I sat down I felt something hard in the catalog. i opened the catalog expecting one of Mike's candy wrappers to fall out and saw instead my wedding rings. I could hardly believe my eyes!
I am just so thankful for my Heavenly Father's tender mercies. I know in the long scheme of things a few pieces of jewelery won't affect eternity. But He knows how much they mean to me and so he helped me to find my rings. I really feel it a miracle. I am so grateful for the tender mercies I experience daily. I am blessed!
