From Ice Skates to Prayer

Published June 8, 2018 by lynn k scott

I have been trying to sell my daughter’s ice skates for the last five years.  They were only worn about 3 times and then she outgrew them.  I had a few inquiries, but the deal was never sealed.  I recently reposted them and someone finally wanted to buy them.

The mom, who I had been corresponding with, said she was blessed to be able to get them for her daughter.  I was selling them for $20 as they were in mint condition.  I decided to surprise her but she had sent her husband instead.

I let him know that I was gifting the skates to his daughter and appreciated all he was doing.  He said he appreciated me.  I should mention, the father is currently serving in the Air Force.  As an Army mom, I do what I can to help out our military (past and present).

Later, I received a text from the mom.  She said her entire family was moved by my generosity.  Her daughter was so excited with her “new” skates.  I simply told her that I was recovering from a serious illness and I had been blessed with a lot of support and now I am able to pay it forward.

We traded a few more texts.  I told her it was meant to be, as I had held onto those skates for so many years.  She asked if she could pray for me.  I thanked her as prayers are always welcomed and appreciated.  I extended an invite to Simple Church, in case they didn’t have a home church.  God works in mysterious ways.  It was a blessing to be able to give a little girl a pair of skates and in turn, I received something much greater.

Boots

Published August 10, 2016 by lynn k scott

Facebook was nice enough to remind me of a short poem I wrote five years ago.  I had forgotten about it; really.  It was a time when I was trying to keep busy; be normal.

It was my son’s first (and only, if i get my wish) deployment.  I was a mess and writing helped.  I wrote to those deployed, other military moms and even new Gold Star moms (hard to do with a deployed child).

I am passionate about supporting our military because I know how much it helps their morale; esp. when being so far from home.  I will be sharing more about that and how others can help, but for now…a simple poem that gave me something to look forward to…

 

I have a spot on the floor
Right near the front door
There’s supposed to be a pair of boots there
But I can’t find them anywhere
I know where they’ve gone
Hopefully, it won’t be too long
For them to be replaced
And I see my son’s smiling face!

Proud Military Mom

I am a proud Army mom!  My son is making a career in the Army, he is doing extremely well and I support his choice 100%. While I have always been supportive of our military, nothing kicks that support into high-gear when someone in your immediate family joins the military.

I can accept not everyone supports war or what orders the military follows, however, I will support my son, military personnel and their families.  I have been actively involved in troop support for several years now.  I currently live close to an Air Force base and am proud to know some families and the fact I can call them friends.

I will post various ways you can help, if you so choose, to support our military.
