Look at his smile!

Today is a beautiful day!

A warm 50 degrees and sunny. We have a wonderfully fresh breeze blowing through our windows.

You might remember this post about how Elijah was praying for a bike of his own.

Would you like to see the answer to that prayer?


Pat and Ruth found this bike in their garage when they moved in last autumn. It sat there until they heard of Elijah's wish. And then they brought it over for him and he has been "working" with his new bike for the last two days!

So today he decided he was going to wash his bike...

He loves the basket on the front. It's perfect for loading treasures like rocks and bottles of bubbles.

Elijah got to see how God some times works through people to answer prayer.

It's amazing to see how God takes care of even little boy's prayers. He cares about the small things too!

God gave Elijah a bike!!! How wonderful for our little E to learn the power of prayer!!! And not only did God give him a bike but it looks to be the perfect size. Wow, awesome! Do they sell training wheels over there Liss?

He is just the right age to understand that his prayer was answered too! Simple faith... now if I could just be more like that!

Oh, how precious! And look! He's learning to be a good steward of what the Lord gave him, by taking care of his bike and washing it! So many lessons for such a little guy!

Oh, and it should be easy to paint...Uncle Tim did it lots of times for the kids...automotive spray paint in a can...can be blue or green or yellow etc, in a very short time!

What an awesome answer to his prayer!
