Isn't God good??

Our sweet son gave DH Tampa Bay Rays tickets for his birthday. We decided to give DH the choice of which game he wanted to attend, rather than trying to guess his work schedule. Since we have a joint account, it's really his money anyway, so he didn't mind having to buy the tickets at the game. We have had some extra expenses lately involving eating out, so I had this feeling that maybe they shouldn't go today since we've had unexpected expenses this week. DH said that they both were really looking forward to it, and he wanted to go. Today's game was a Family Fun day, so the tickets are the cheapest you will find all season at $25 each and it includes a free drink and hot dog. Nevertheless, $50 is $50. It seemed like too much after the week we've had, but it WAS DH's bday gift, so they happily left for the game with the intent of buying tickets at the box office.

DH just called and said, "Isn't God good?"

I replied, "Yes, are you all having fun?"

DH "You won't believe this! I asked a woman where to go to buy tickets, and she said, 'Here you go. I have extra tickets from work. Use these.'" She then handed DH 2 tickets, which are GREAT seats and include the drinks and food. They were ecstatic! The Lord honored DH's intentions to make a special memory with his son, despite the fact that we were all "spent out" for this week. Thank you, Lord, for your provision in ALL things, especially when we least expect it. I wish I had sent a camera with them!

What a wonderful story! God is good--and sees even our smallest needs! That little miracle will make that fun experience even more memorable! I miss the days (just a few years ago) we used to be able to see the "Devil Rays" play for $5--no cheap seats anymore :( !

That is a great story! Your boys were able to completely enjoy the day...no strings. That is provision. I am so glad they had a special day together.
