You might think, ‘Here she goes again.’ Cue the eye roll. Or maybe ‘I’m so happy…for you.’
Today was like any ordinary day. My husband Dave and I had a few errands to run. I suppose you’re going to remind me COVID-19 is still lurking about and our lockdown continues.
We are doing our best to stay home, but life does go on. Besides we were wearing our masks.
Because of the mask that I had this incident. I lost one of my hearing aids. There is only so much room for things around my ears and I maxed out. My hair is thick, I wear glasses, and donning my mask took me over the top.
I never felt it go or heard it drop. Of course not, we were in a store among other shoppers.
When I finally did realize my loss, I retraced my steps. An employee was near the entrance, when I inquired if he might have seen it?
“No, but I can alert the people at Customer Service for you. “
Maybe it happened in the parking lot. Nope. Inside the car maybe? Nothing.
Thoughts of having to replace it brought me down. We can’t afford this. But I also knew Jesus was on this. Nothing gets by him.
Mentally I started thanking him for how he was going to provide. Either by unexpected funds coming our way or my finding it.
All the while Dave is conducting our shopping with some help from a store employee.
“Is there anything else I can help you with?”
“Only finding my hearing aid I lost.”
“Oh, someone found a hearing aid and turned it in at Customer Service. I just heard it on my two way radio.”
Arriving at the front desk, I had to wait my turn to be helped.
I hadn’t even opened my mouth when the clerk asked, “Are you here for your hearing aid?” I marveled at how he knew what I was there for. Then it dawned on me, I’m old. I look like some lady that would wear hearing aids. The truth hurts.
The reason I share this little saga is I want you to be aware of Jesus in a life. It pleases him to meet our needs. But we gotta acknowledge his presence.
Extraordinary things can happen in an ordinary life. I’m proof.
