There are some stories that just can't be kept to yourself, this is one of those stories.
When my dear friend Shay emailed me the story of my precious Godson Jaden's (and hers) CHRISTmas gift I knew I had to share it with all of you.
Be blessed and enjoy.......
What present did you get for CHRISTmas that you oh so love?
Sisters, I wanted to share with you my favorite Christmas gift. A gift so awesome, God is just continuously blessing me days after Christmas. So awesome, that I had to literally stop in the middle of the Target parking lot and sit in my car just so I can write this email!
Mid November, we went to Nellis AFB with Jaden's Gram for lunch. It was there that he saw his dream bike!
Jaden even saw a shark helmet! (If you know my son you know he absolutely LOVES sharks. He is famous for his shark sunglasses which never leaves his head). The helmet was the color gray and a bit tight but it was a shark. So, to him it was cool!
Every chance we got we continued to look for a bike. We continued to look all the way up till Christmas. We drove to all the Wal-Mart, Target, Toys R Us in the greater Las Vegas & Henderson area. But none of them would do. He truly fell in love with that green camo bike & shark helmet.
During one of our shopping trips at Target we found another shark helmet. It was different than the helmet we saw in the base. The helmet was the color blue, had shark teeth and it even had the famous "Jaw's fin" sticking up like a mawhawk. It really was a hoot! Too funny! He absolutely loved it! His eyes were just big with excitement. LOL!
What Jaden didn't know was that his father woke up extra early, while he was still asleep, that November day and bought the bike without him to surprise him for Christmas. It was stored in his grandparent's shed the entire time! And his mom kept taking him bike shopping to make the reveal of surprise even greater :)
Ladies, why am I telling you this story? Because isn't our God just like this? Doesn't He have a plan that He already set up in motion behind the scenes waiting for the right time to reveal?
We often forget that our God loves us SO much that His greatest joy is...To enter our joy!
Oh what an awesome wonderful God we have! Just thought I'd share that with you ladies & hope this blesses you too!
