Brooke's New Wheels

We have two little neighbor boys that LOVE Brookelyn. Every time she is outside they come running out to play with her! They tell me all the time how they wished they had a little sister. The other day they brought over a little play fire engine that they had found out on the curb because the owners did not want it anymore and gave it to her. She was so thrilled!!!!!

I love her angry face in the picture on the right. She was quite frustrated she could not get the car to move by herself so instead of asking for help in a sweet little girl voice, she continued to wave a fist, yell and scream at us. It was one of those moments you are shocked she is so naughty but trying so hard not to laugh because she is just incredibly too cute. After we worked through the tantrum and showed her how to move the car she was once again excited and wanted to share with Bubba.

These two are my favorite of the whole day....

It is so awesome how the Lord provides for us! I love toys, a trait which I MOST DEFINITELY inherited from my Mother, but sometimes practicality takes over what I wish for. These cars can be spendy and the kids really don't play with them for that long, but I still wanted one.  Asking the Lord to provide toys for your kids seems so odd because why would He be concerned about toys?? But  I believe when you have faith that can move mountains, anything is possible. Trivial or not.  He loves us so much and loves it when we cast every care or concern on Him. Providing this little red car for Brookelyn reminds me that when big trials or concerns come my way, I need to go to Him!!!!!!!! If He is willing and able to provide the little trivial things, isn't He WILLING and ABLE to provide big things?

John 14:13-15

 And whatever you shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. If you love me, keep my commandments.

1 Peter 5:7-11
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:  Casting all your care on him; for he cares for you.  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour:  Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brothers that are in the world.  But the God of all grace, who has called us to his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that you have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.  To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

What a gift!The pics are adorable. Do you remember you gave your first kiss in a car something like this? Gracie went on her honeymoon in a car like this. Of course, you both were only three at the time. Watch out for little Brooke Trout!

Daddy just bought me a Barbie camper bus, like the one I had when I was young, but Beka is making me share it.

Thanks for the beautiful reminder of the Lord's provision. He does care about all things!

You're right about the Lords provisions. I often get stopped in my tracks over little things He provides for us. What a blessing to have good neighbors too!
