We were so excited, it's a big step for Reagan as she is entering middle school next year.
I made plans with the lady to pick it on Friday.
On Sunday night I prayed that God would provide the money we needed.
Monday morning my battery died twice and we had to buy a new battery for the van. Thankfully our old battery was guarantied for a certain amount of months and we were able to get a partial refund. Tuesday I sold some of Reagan's clothes and we had $51 for the desk.
Wednesday the washing machine started to making a horrible noise. I dreaded to think how much it would cost. Thankfully it was an easy fix.
I figured that the money I saved fixing the washer was the rest of the money for the desk. Well, I got an email late Thursday from the lady informing me she had sold the desk to a coworker. Wait, what'd she say!? She did what? But we had a verbal agreement?!
I knew Reagan was going to be so sad. There is no way we could afford the desk brand new. I called my mom and she said, Praise God! You asked him to provide this desk and the money, God has this under control.
Before picking Reagan up from band after school I did a quick craigslist search again and couldn't believe my eyes!
The same exact desk for only $40!! I emailed and called the lady and she said I was the first to call and that I could pick it up after she got off work.
Can you believe it?! I should have had more faith, God cares about the things that we think aren't important. It was important to Reagan and God knew it. And not only did he provide the desk, it was only $40!!! This is a very heavy, high quality, $350 desk. Needless to say, Reagan is over the moon excited!!
God is so good!
