Ask....

....and if it's God's will....you will receive!!!


I've posted on Facebook a couple of times about wanting a bicycle.
A few months ago I asked if anybody had one in their barn, or storage shed that they would be willing to get rid of.  I didn't want a "mountain bike", or anything with gears, or hand brakes....just an old-fashioned granny bike.  Our boys like to ride their bikes in the road in front of our house and I get out there with  them and walk up and down the road....which I know is good for me....but I want to  "ride like the wind" and be "Speedy Gonzales" like they do.  If I had $170 dollars to spare....which I don't....this is the bike I would get....
Isn't she beautiful?
You know why I picked her?
Because this is a HUFFY Panama JACK bicycle!!!
In case you're wondering why that's important....
...well....Huffy is what I call Pappy because of our last name....
....and Pappy's "real" name is Jack!!!
So, don't you agree, this is the perfect bike for me?!?!


One day this week, this was my FB post....
"I want a purple bicycle!!! ;-)"


Well....Pappy has a friend whose nephew gets bicycles and fixes them up for sale.  He sent a text picture of one to Pappy yesterday....ladies' bike....plain old cruiser....no frills.  I told Pappy to ask him if the tires were good....and out of curiosity....what color is it?


You know what's coming next, don't you?!?!?
Yes....the bike is PURPLE!!!!
And....he only wants TWENTY DOLLARS for it....
....$150 less than the Panama Jack!!!
I don't know yet if it's a HUFFY!!!


Isn't this proof positive that God is in the details....
....even if it is a purple bicycle for Nannie!!!!

Psalm 37:4
Take delight in the LORD, 
      and he will give you your heart’s desires.



And, yes Ms. Becky....I'm already on the look-out for a bike basket!!!!  ;-)

 Hope you have a fantastic Friday, Sweet Reader!!!

In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  4. Yay for purple Nannie bikes! This is such a fun post! All 3 of our teens wanted these kind of bikes for Christmas and my married daughter has one too! Although none of theirs are purple! Your grandkids are going to love hot wheelin' it with their Nanna! I have no doubt you'll get your basket!

  6. I got a granny bike a couple of years ago. It was a no frills one. My hubby painted it purple with a real pale sage green accent. I didn't ride it too much last summer, but this summer, I plan to!

  7. That is great! How cool is that!! I found a bike recently off of freecycle but it needs a new chain and new tires. God does answer prayers!
