Our Sovereign God....

This is Charlotte's blankie. It is her comfort, her strength, and her security. And today, we lost it.

I know...I felt like the worst mother ever. How could I possibly lose (or let her lose) the single most important item that she owns. We lost it at Target during one of the busiest shopping days of the year. We went back and looked everywhere, everywhere we had been which, today, wasn't very many places. Brit called Lost and Found, and they had it! But when I went to get it, it was a different white blanket with Winnie the Pooh on it. I looked again, and still no where to be found. My hope was all but lost.

And we were in line to check out, and I remembered Gretchen's rabid chipmunk story (which is long and random and really rather here nor there). So, Charlotte and I, in the checkout line at Target, prayed to God who knows all things and has power over all things that we would get the blankie back. Nothing is too small or big for Him. On our way out of the store, I stopped to check in Lost and Found again, just to see if someone had turned it in since we had been there. And there it was. So we praised God. Because He can do all things, knows all things and has power over all things. Praise God for giving us Charlotte's blankie back. A stupid thing, reminding me of God's awesome sovereignty over all things. Praise God from Whom all blessings (even security blankies) flow. :)

  1. When I saw the picture at the start of this post i thought "oh no" and I felt a little worried. I'm so happy that Charlotte has her blankie back.

  2. Ok, so I have chill bumps all over my body from reading this. Lilah has a "baby" that she cannot live without either. And she too, has once lost it at TARGET. What is with that store. When we re-retraced our steps, I was looking dow (you know, down on the ground). I was about to give up and looked up almost as if I was turning to God and there it was lying over a clothing rack (up off the floor). I guess someone found it and wanted to do a kind deed by picking it up off of the floor. Why not turn it into lost and found? Anyway, God gave Charlotte the best Christmas present she could ask for (besides the obvious). I am so glad you found it. God hears all things! Even the "silly" things.
