~Does God care about a bike rack? YES! HE DOES!! The bicycles here are sold WITHOUT kickstands! And the way they make houses here...our garage door IS OUR FRONT DOOR. I didn't like it that our kids bikes were always laying down on the floor, looking messy. (We didn't want them leaning against the walls, for the paint is a peach color and gets DIRTY so FAST!!) So, A couple weeks ago I was telling Phillip that I would LOVE to find a bike rack (like they have in front of stores to lock your bikes to) that would just hold 3 bikes, so that our garage and front door would look neater. The next day as we walked to our Fruit and Veggie market, there was a bike rack right beside the guard shack of the guard of our street. So, I asked him if he knew where I could buy one of those. He told me that he would try to find out and let me know. I went on home and then Phillip left to teach his Bible class. About 5 minutes later, our doorbell rang, and it was the street guard WITH THE BIKE RACK IN HIS HANDS. HE SAID THAT PHILLIP HAD ALREADY PAID HIM FOR IT, AND IT WAS OURS NOW!
AND YES...IT HELD JUST 3 BIKES!!
Here recently, Our family has been REALLY PRAYING about 2 HUGE SPECIAL UNSPOKEN REQUEST...and when God gave us the bike rack (for about $7.50) WITHOUT ME EVEN PRAYING ABOUT IT...I told our girls that if He cared about a bike rack...then HE CARES about our unspoken requests! God has already answered one of those request and for that we PRAISE HIM! Isn't God Awesome?!!!
