This morning I dropped my wallet as I got in the car at Walmart. Without going into all the events that brought about, I will simply say the wallet was turned in at Mike’s, where it was found near the garbage cans late this afternoon. David’s niece, Julia, and her husband, Keith, own the restaurant. I was called to pick up my wallet. The only thing missing was the cash.

David and I prayed again and again that the wallet would be returned. I felt like the house phone would have a message for me about my wallet when we got home, but no message. A few hours later, we got the call we had prayed for all day. At the restaurant, we talked with the lady who turned it in and learned she lives near us!

What a day! What a God!!!
