My budget was $50. We had my old twin bed frame, but no mattress.
Is it impossible to find a mattress set for under $50? No, but its not an easy find. So, I decided to pray for a twin mattress set for Suhn.
I ran across several ads, but they were either too expensive or had already sold.
So I kept praying.
Last week I noticed a garage sale ad that listed a twin mattress set. I marked my calendar and showed up at the sale two minutes after it was scheduled to open. The woman was still setting up when I drove by. I only saw a mattress, no box spring, but decided to stop anyway.
"Yes, the mattress comes with a box springs," she said.
When I asked how much, she threw out "$10?".
And then she asked, "Are you Kory's wife?"
It turns out Kory had been her daughter's physical therapist a few years back.
She told me we could have the bed for FREE!
I left praising God.
It was a small request, maybe even a little silly, but God answered!
I'm so thankful He cares about the little things.
