Remembrance of God's mercy....even on a lemonade stand

I just thought I would share this to you guys. God is so good in the good times and the bad! This time he has been gracious in providing just the amount of money that we prayed for and more besides! We started out today...not making much money, but then we all huddled tether and prayed that the Lord would (according to his will) provide about $80. Then after some thought, we all prayed that he would provide $120 instead.

All throughout the rest of the day, the customers started trickling in....more and more! Finally, by the end of the day (after much sweat and toil) we counted our savings. We ended up with $118. 2 dollars short of what we prayed for! (We were still jumping up and down ;)
About two hours later, Caelen reached into her pockets and to all of our surprise, she had found two more dollars that she had stuffed in and forgotten earlier!!!!! We were amazed, humbled, and excited that the Lord our God held such a little request as; earning enough money from a lemonade stand to go on a trip to an amusement park; so highly.
Then to add to that, he blessed us with $7 more because some lady's that had attended Aunt Kim's Tupperware party tonight bought our left over cookies. The Lord has been so gracious to us and needless to say, we are all going to CAROWINDS tomorrow, and are all looking forward to it. (I honestly don't know how we are going to sleep tonight! :)

I hope this has encouraged everyone tonight who feels like God will not take notice of little requests. If he can answer the prayer of some kids trying to go to an amusement park, than he can certainly answer yours!
In Christ,
