For those who haven't heard the story: David had asked for 2 things for Christmas a laptop and an ipod. So I sat David down and explained that we would not be able to get him either one of these gifts as they cost too much. He replied " I know, but why do you have to take my hope? Jesus came to be the Hope of the world and you you just crushed my hope." Needless to say, I felt bad. As a Mom I want to give my kids what they want, and David hardly asks for anything. Little did I know that God had a plan. One of our house mates in Fort Hood had upgraded his ipod to the ipod touch and wanted to sell his ipod. The price he offered was well within the hope range!!
