my little miracle-just wanted to share it

So as you all know we went home to California for Thanksgiving and had a really nice time except for a couple of hiccups along the way. When we went to the quaint town of Cameno where the famous Apple Hill is our car was broken into and my purse was stolen. In my purse were some pretty important things (to me). I cancelled all my credit/bank cards and set up new accounts with my banks. I was really disappointed and felt a little violated. When I asked the policewoman taking the report what the chances were of me ever seeing my purse again she said, "one in a million." The night it was stolen Matthew said the nightly prayers with the kids and to my surprise asked for my purse to be returned. I also offered some quiet prayers, although I felt a little guilty taking up his time with such menial matters. We left California and came home and I all but forgot about my purse, assuming that is was gone forever. To my surprise I received a phone call Sunday from a women in Lake Tahoe telling me that she was out on a walk with her dog, while visiting family in Cameno and found my purse in a ditch and she told me she was going to send it to me right away. I know you are all thinking what's the big deal..it's just a purse...Yeah I know it is just a purse, but it's the Lord who cared about my purse and it just feels so good to know he cares about us, every part about our lives....he can divide the red sea and find and return a stolen purse. He hears our prayers, even the quiet ones....

Isn't it amazing. Never give up on answers to our prayers. Thanks for posting about your experience. So glad you got your purse back and that a very honest person found it.

Phew! So he wasn't after stealing your car or stalking you at your house after all! Just wanted your money. Glad you finally got it back. Like we talked about before, it's not so much the cash I would be sad about losing, but all the other junk we pack around--kids pictures, full Cafe Rio punch cards, and all the misc sentimental crap! :)
