Grammy was not happy when she sat down next to me at church.
“I lost my hearing aid,” she said.
I knew what this meant. Even with the hearing aid, she barely could hear the pastor. Today, she would hear nothing and, yet, she came because it was that important for her to be with God’s people.
Thankfully, the service hadn’t started yet so I said loudly, into her better ear, “I’ll come home with you after church and look for it.”
When I arrived at her house, I asked the obvious question, “Where were you when you lost it?”
“In the yard,” she replied.
The yard? That big, double lot?
Needle meet haystack.
She pointed me to an area where she had been doing some yard work. I slowly started walking back and forth in the area and suddenly, inexplicably quckly, I found it.
“Oh!” Grammy exclaimed. “God led you right to it.”
Grammy’s like that. These litte, everyday experiences are tiny displays of God’s majestic grace and a sign of his deep care for even the mundane parts of our lives.
