I love it when God smiles on me. I love it even more when He smiles on my kiddos.
And on Sunday, He did just that.
Dalton has been wanting a basketball hoop since… well, forever. And time has only caused it to intensify. He has a basketball – or the nerf version of a basketball – in his hands every waking, non-school moment. His tiny nerf hoop finally disintegrated from overuse.
For months he has been saving his money diligently.
And looking on Cr@igslist – daily – for something he could afford.
Problem is, we don’t really have a spot for a basketball hoop. The driveway is gravel and there isn’t a level spot big enough for a makeshift court.
It was a conundrum.
There wasn’t much there for the rest of the family, but somehow that didn’t really matter.
Because they had this. Brand new and still in the box.
Dalton had enough, more than enough, to buy it.
And his room, after some minor furniture rearrangements, had enough room to house it.
Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.
~ Psalm 37:4
