Peppermint Soap..and a Prayer

I kid you not.  This story is real-live-true. 

I was standing at my kitchen sink the other day....

washing my hands with the last of some watermelon 
flavored pump soap leftover from summer.

I was wishing I had some of that new 
peppermint soap for my little "sink-side."

I thought about running down to the mall for some 
Bath and Body "Pick 3 for $15"...

when I decided that was frivolous, unnecessary,  
and an unwise expense at this time of the year.

So I had a little talk with the 
One Who knows me best... the kitchen sink.

Dear Father,  if you would like for me to have 
some peppermint soap for my sink...

...would You send it to me in a special way?

This morning, on the way into my classroom, I found a little treat at my "doorstep"... a treat from a fellow teacher.  She had no idea of my silly request just a few days before... 

But God did.

(Thanks Robin!)

You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
Psalm 139:2
