Two nights ago I was catching up Justin's photo blog of his mission. I like to keep it in chronological order and I needed to put a couple of memory cards on the blog. I went looking for the memory card he sent in July. I remember we were at the cabin when we first looked at it on my computer and then hadn't seen it since. I looked all over for it - in the safe place I've been keeping all of his memory cards, not there. In all sorts of other places it might be - not there. I was really starting to get stressed about it. It wasn't backed up on my external hard drive. I hadn't ever put that specific memory card on facebook - my other backup place. I was getting panicky - what if I'd lost the memory card and all those great photos on it.
Finally I dropped to my knees and pleaded with Heavenly Father - please help me find that memory card. And I was specific in my prayer - "please put a thought in my mind of where I should look." As soon as I was done with my prayer the thought came to my mind "look in your camera bag." I hadn't looked there but right when I had that thought I was comforted. I found my camera bag and inside there is a zipper pocket and I opened and in there was a memory card. I put it in my computer and it was Justin's missing memory card. I was so relieved. I said my prayer of thanks and slept well that night.
Answers to prayer are real.
