Bananas

I rummaged through my closet this afternoon looking for a t-shirt to throw on. I pulled a turquoise, flowy tank out, and right then, my "Banana" tee caught my eye. I smiled. My banana tee has a story behind it.

One morning, a few years ago, I remember complaining because we had nothing in the house for breakfast. I specifically made the biggest deal that we didn't even have bananas. When I got home late that evening, there was this ginormous box of bananas on the counter! A huge box completely filled with bananas! Not squash, not potatoes, not apples; BANANAS. Apparently, the grocery store had just received a fresh shipment, so the produce manager gave my mom this box, for free.

Before they call, I will answer. While they are still speaking, I will hear.
Isaiah 65:24
Bananas is a good reminder to me that there are answers. That there is One who hears. One who hears the little things, even when it's in the form of a complaint. No matter in what form we come to Him, He always hears. Today, "Bananas" reminded me that He is hearing us in all of our questions and concerns with the tortilla business.

I love this, Kara! And the Louis Voutton (sp?) piece, too! You make my days better with what you share! I need these reminders to give to others, and to remember that God ALWAYS provides!
