Tender Mercies

Sometimes things happen and you just know the hand of the Lord was in it.
 Last week, out of the blue, our sweet neighbor-friend dropped off a huge pile (I'm talking crammed-packed garbage bag full) of clothes her cute little daughter had outgrown.
It couldn't have come at a better time as I had just (seriously the day before) gone through the girls' closet and assessed that #5 had outgrown most all of her clothes.  Which meant that #6 now had a ton of clothes to wear and #5 was basically down to just her underwear.  (Okay not really, but I was going to need to go buy her some more clothes.)
This girl was giddy with joy going through one by one, each and every single piece of clothing, while her little sister looked on hoping there would be something in there for her.  No such luck!
 After looking at the clothes, there was a few hours spent trying on each and every single thing.  Most of that time was spent posing in the mirror.
 Posing some more, assessing how she looked in each outfit, and then discussing with her little sister  which hair bow or accessory they each thought would look good with it.  Because that's what little girls do.?!?
She's had a blast this past week dressing up in her brand new wardrobe, and Lucky Me -all I had to buy her was a new pair of boots! 

"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." 
-Philippians 4:19
