When I saw this photo, I wondered.

How did they get to this box?

Who wrote them?

Who received them?

What are their stories?

Would they want their letters read years later?

family music 174 | Sheltered in the Arms of God


It is a meaningful song to Karrilee.

Dad dug it out, so I could record him and send it to her.

One of my little  friends shared how her dad dislocated his shoulder playing hockey.

After she went off to play, another little one said,

   "My dad never gets sick."

   "He eats Advil every morning."

On Monday, I received an email from a parent of a former student. She asked if I would like a winter coat that her son outgrew. I replied with a yes, as there are times when we need coats for students, and I was thinking about next year.

On Thursday, a co-worker brought the coat to me. When dropping off her son, the parent had passed it along to her to give to me.

What else happened on Thursday was interesting!

On that same morning, one of my parents sent a text asking if her son could borrow a coat because he was cold on the way to school.

I had one. It was delivered to me.

Perfect timing.

God's timing.
