This little sprinkle was a family effort. Our local pregnancy resource center was holding a bake sale fundraiser, and it seemed a perfect way for our family to become involved in supporting their important work. I baked brownies and bread, stopping only when I ran out of flour.
To my great surprise (why was I surprised... isn't this happening every day?) joy was sprinkled back on me! The two women who ended up staying most of the time with me, both knew people from my church. One of the women was new to the area and our church had prayed for her. The other woman looked familiar, and I finally figured out I had met her two and a half years ago at a conference several hours away from our area. We had corresponded by email a few times.
It was a beautiful reminder of how we are a family in Christ, all tenderly interwoven, each needing and blessing each other.
