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.
