Lost and Found on a God Trip

OK, now I should not be surprised. 

When my daughter, Christine reached for her camera on the boat trip around Manhattan, May 10th, it was gone.  It had all  her family vacation pictures from Florida, Virginia and New York City and special ones of her visit with her best friend, Amy in Alexandria.   But as my friend, Kate always says, “God’s delays are not God’s denials.”   We both had faith it would show up some day.

So where did her camera go?   Read the email I received yesterday:

Hi!

I am emailing you because my mother found a hot pink camera in a taxi in NYC and
I found a picture of a computer with this website and recognized you! I’m sorry
for looking at the pictures, but I wanted to see if I could return the camera.

Please let me know where I can mail it to you. I live in Venezuela, but I can
send it to you during the weekend of June 18th because I will be flying to
Florida.

If it is not yours but you know who it belongs to, please let me know so I can
contact them

Thank you!

Alexandra

Yes.  Christine will get her camera back from someone in Venezuela and as God trips always go:  we have made a new friend.    Thank you, Alexandra.  You have a great Mom.   Maybe some day we can all meet in New York City.

  1. An amazing story, Mom! I cried when I read her email (and that in our country store in Germany!) So much grace and beauty. I feel so blessed! I too have blogged about it. Hugs! 🙂

  2. Cool story! The world is not always as bad as we are led to believe.

    • It sure is a good world for the most part, Tom. Look how you are taking office duty for me this morning so I can hold Suzanne and Gary’s townhouse for a broker’s lunch. Many thanks.

  3. Really awesome. Thanks for sharing that story!!!
