Testify: A diaper bag

THE bag, different color


Have you ever thought about something and wanted it but couldn't have it and didn't tell anyone? You wished that somehow someone would know and buy it for you just because. James 1:17 says “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”

I received a very special gift recently, a new diaper bag from a friend who was cleaning out and thought I might like it along with some miscellaneous boy clothes she had for Caleb. She told me 3 things when she called to let me know she had them for me. It was from Eddie Bauer, it was big, and it was Khaki in color.

What she didn't know was in July when I was finishing preparing for Caleb's arrival a new larger diaper bag was on my list of wants. I went to the store and browsed and picked one out, but was waiting for the right time when I could use coupons to purchase the bag. When the coupons were usable I went back and second guessed my previous choice and spent another hour in the store looking and choosing. I settled on a different bag than I had originally chosen. The bag I bought was black with green trim and lined with vinyl. It was long and narrow and hung on the stroller well. It was a grat bag until we took it to the beach and I couldn't get all the sand out of it, because it was sticking to the vinyl. I got out what I could but was annoyed. Then I got this phone call about another bag that she had for me.

It was the exact bag I had wanted the first time! And now it is mine. It has 6 pockets on the outside for keeping things handy, and both a shoulder strap and shorter handles, it has lots of pockets inside (I like to keep things organized). The only downside is that being canvas it is a heavier bag. But it is very special and makes me smile when I see it and how God gave me the bag I wanted.
