An example comes to mind. My wife needed a new pair of sandals. She had only one pair of shoes, heeled, but they were not suitable for walking around in all the time. We were very poor in our early married life and as she knew our money was "tight", she didn't say a word to me about the much needed sandals. (This was in the days before we had such a thing as the wonderful Opportunity Shop.) I left her with the children and went off to a meeting in a nearby town. On the way home, driving around a long sweeping country bend, I saw on the side of that lonely Gippsland road, what looked like a pair of sandals. I stopped the car, walked back and there, placed neatly, looking as though someone had just stepped out of them, was a beautiful, new pair of sandals. I called out for the owner, but no one came. I waited, holding the sandals for some time. Still no one came, so I took them home; and the look of surprised delight on my wife's face was a picture. She wanted to know how I knew she needed a pair of sandals, how I had obtained the money, and how I had known the exact colour, type, and size. They were perfect! I then told her the circumstances of the acquiring of the sandals. Her smile shifted to serious mode, and she exclaimed, "The Providence of God!" And it certainly was. She was very grateful for her new sandals and wore them for a long time.
