It was 1963 and I had two little girls still in diapers. (The cloth type ~ no disposable ones) We were young and struggling from paycheck to paycheck (which were small) and it was a few days before payday, and I was completely out of soap. A pile of dirty diapers in the pail and only two clean ones left.
I remember that feeling of helplessness as I fell to my knees in the bedroom and cried out to the Lord something like this:
"Lord, I got two little girls that need clean diapers and I don't have any money or any soap....Either you need to keep them from peeing or send me some soap"
I got up, and thought I heard someone at the door. When I got there, no one in sight...and then I saw it ~ A small sample box of Ajax soap in a plastic bag hanging on my door knob. I'm aware that everyone in my neighborhood got a sample that day, but I also know that the Lord heard the cry of a desperate mom. My faith was increased by leaps and bounds, and I'm sure many of you have your own milestone stories.
There is a verse that tells us to remind our children when they walk, when they sleep, when they eat of the things God has done for us. Our kids know this story and many others in our Hall of Faith Milestones.
God is good all the time, and then some!
