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.

Updated: God in my life

Published May 31, 2018 by lynn k scott

I’ve been reviewing some of my previous writings.  I thought with June looming around the corner, it would be a good time to reflect on God in my life.  I wrote the original, “God In My Life” a year ago.  Since then, I have been diagnosed with Stage-3 colon cancer and my youngest sister, whom I’ve somewhat reconnected with, has been diagnosed with Stage-2 breast cancer.  While I am fighting cancer with everything I’ve got, I never went through the “why me” phase.  I truly trust God has a plan for me.

I am still with Simple Church and they have been beyond supportive.  I know I was led there before my cancer diagnosis was brought to light. For that, I am eternally grateful!  I am thankful for everyone who has prayed, and continues to pray for me.  Prayer really does work.

 

I Believe

I believe in the power of prayer.  Today, I received more bad news; not about me though.  I am asking for anyone who prayers to lift up a prayer for my son.  I am feeling helpless and there’s not much I can do.

He knows what it’s about.  I just pray truth and justice are brought to light.  This family has had far too much to deal with lately.

Thank you…

A simple text

Published January 8, 2016 by lynn k scott

My daughter has chapel every Friday morning at her school.  They sing songs, say a few prayers, etc.

I noticed a text from her teacher.  I immediately thought something was wrong.  When I opened the text I was pleasantly surprised.

There were two pictures of my daughter, with a few other students.  Everyone’s head was bowed.  The caption read,

Singing and praying over (the lil miss) for her birthday.

Just reading that misted my eyes.  How thoughtful of her school to recognize her birthday that occurred while they were on Christmas break.

We are absolutely blessed to have found such an amazing school!  Every day I am thankful we have found a safe, enriching, encouraging place for my daughter’s education to bloom like a flower in Spring.
