Tonight while out in a field on the farm, I lost one of my pearl earrings! I was in knee deep grass and weeds playing with Teague my 6 1/2 month old Great Dane when I realized it was gone. My heart sunk. My pearls were a present from my dad my senior year of college. I am pretty sure I was in shock. I thought to myself, “how will I ever find a single pearl in the middle of a 10 acre field that was knee high?” I had my checkbook in my pocket, so I dropped where I thought my earring fell out. With a heavy heart, I went to feed the horses. While at the horses, I called a very special guy quickly to calm me down.
After feeding the horses, I decided that I would head back to my checkbook and look for my earring until dark. I figured that I had about 45 minutes, being generous to myself. It took me 10 mins to find my checkbook in the grass. Only a few minutes later, dad pulled in the driveway and he came out to help look.
My dad is the earring whisperer in the family. He has always been able to help me find a missing earing and I was hoping this times was no different. When I first got my ears pierced he taught me a trick– one that has come in very handy! When looking for a missing earring, take the remaining earring and place it on the same flooring. Your eyes will see how the earing looks on the floor. Keep scanning the floor. AND BAM! All of the sudden– there it is! That missing earring.
I had gently placed the remaining earring in the grass to see if dad’s trick would work. We were both crawling around on our knees, praying, and looking for the missing earring. I thought I caught a glimpse of the earing but it turned out to be a bug, my heart dropped a little more. We were discussing getting a weed eater and systematically working through the area…when the earring was spotted.
I carefully dug it out of the weeds it was hiding. Instantly, I
felt feel completely blessed. I have a dad that is willing to come help search for a lost earring and a Heavenly Father that showed us it’s hiding spot.
What are some of your blessings?
