On Sunday I lost an envelope with $445 cash in it- left over from some money I had as emergency cash for a day in on a Mexico Missions trip.

On Monday I found it under the seat in my car, in some random location I swear I looked at least 10 times before. I literally stuck my head out the window and yelled, “Thank you Jesus!” as loud as I could. I guess maybe I thought Jesus was deaf, cuz I can yell loud. I’m sure the mall parking lot thought I was nuts. I had been praying like crazy I’d find this envelope and searched my house and cars for like an hour plus too.

Maybe God stuck it there. Maybe it was there the whole time. Either way. I was super stoked. I can’t afford to lose almost $500. I’m just not that lucrative.


  1. One sweet thing about that kind of stress is the tremendous relief you feel on the other side.

    I’ve been there recently too…(not that amount of money, actually not money at all) but still the same I understand. I too ended up finding my lost item in a common place that I had looked a dozen times. Why is that? In the moment are we too frazzled with stress to really look for the lost item sufficiently? Maybe next time I lose something I’m just going to give up and not even try looking until at least a few hours later.

    Sorry to ramble here, this is a bit of a sensitive subject with me over the past few weeks. Happy for you.

    Now if you can just find a camera, too, I’d be grateful.

    Love, Dad

  3. Will you scream thank you Jesus if I do?

    Where do I have to go to yell? Will the neighborhood suffice? Dad
