The Little Things

My camera is out of juice. So the other day I went to get the charger for the battery so I could charge it. I couldn't find it. I looked high and low. No luck. I have one place I keep stuff like that and I looked throughly to no avail. The camera is only a few months old. I have only had to charge the battery once. Where could it be?

Tonight I started to think I would have to buy a new charger. I looked up how much a replacement would cost - $50. That is almost 1/4 the price of the camera. I know it has to be somewhere. But where?

I went up to bed. I knelt down to say my nightly prayers. And I prayed to find my charger. I did not have much hope. I had already searched high and low. I knew it wasn't somewhere I was just going to "run across" sometime. I have been looking for it for a few days now.

But I prayed that maybe the Lord would put a thought in my mind that would help me know where to look. I just kept thinking that it couldn't be too far from the place I keep all the charger things. So I came back downstairs to that area and thought, "You know I know I have looked there before, but I will search the kid's "pencil" drawer again. It has lots of junk in it. Maybe the charger is hiding.

As I started looking I realized that I didn't even know exactly how big it was. It could be smaller than I was thinking. I began taking everything out. And there it was. Under some paper in the far back corner. It was MUCH smaller than I thought. It has no cord either (another thing I was looking for.) It just plugs straight in the wall.

Once again, the Lord shows me He does care, even about little things.

Stephanie, I have been reading your blog for a long time now, but rarely have I commented, but I have to share my story. I too lost my charger the other night to my camera, which we purchased the end of September. It, too, plugs directly into the wall, and I keep it around the same area all the time. I had looked everywhere, sat down to do other things and would look again, searching the same places thinking it had to be there. For some reason I lifted the lid to my large canister (I keep the flour in the sack) and there sat my charger on top of the flour sack! How in the world did it get there! But oh so relieved that I had found it! This was on Wednesday night! Must have been hide and seek night with the camera chargers! Thanks for sharing your stories, you have a beautiful family. A friend in East Texas, Pam.

I love noticing little miracles. So simple, yet profound.
