School Carnival: Tender Mercies

by This is Carrie on October 21, 2009

I can’t let the School Carnival posts go by without mentioning the miracles that happened during the carnival:

1. We were still very short on booth workers with 5 minutes until the start of the carnival until 15 fraternity brothers walked in from our local university and asked if we needed any help. I held in the tears as I walked them over to their assignments. Because of them, the booths ran smoothly all night long.

2. I had been waiting for a UPS box of prizes all week. Finally I was promised it was on a truck to be delivered the day of the carnival. Waited all day. No box. I nervously watched the prizes we did have all night, praying they would last until the box came. It was like the 2 fish and 5 loaves that fed 5000. We actually had enough and the box came 1/2 hour after the carnival ended.

Oh how absolutely wonderful. I am so happy you had the help you needed from such an unlikely source!

Please do tell…were they Sigma Chi? Were they Phi Delta Theta? Were they FIJIs? Would love to give the Greek world a shout out – and prove stereotypes wrong!

MMW- They were from Delta Tau Delta and they were AMAZING with the kids. They must have read the book "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" about a million times, entertaining the kids in line. One time I walked by they were doing the rap version. So funny.

As my mother always used to tell me, "You and the Lord can do anything!" … followed by, "You do all that you can and the Lord will take care of the rest". I'm a total believer in those words.

Good things happen when you do good things.
