I just want to remember

I just want to remember what happened in Hobby Lobby today.

I was there alone which gave me the chance to take my time and go up and down each aisle. If I had some serious fun money, I could have redecorated each room in our house. There are some serious markdowns going on right now. Hobby Lobby is ministry to me. :) They have such beautiful things and I never fail to see the Word all over the place.

After drooling over iron crosses and peacock feathers...I made my way to check out. My one purchase was a package of invitations for Chloe's upcoming birthday party. This is where God surprised me.

There was one lady in front of me. She handed the cashier a coupon only to be told she couldn't use it on her purchases because everything she bought was on sale. She turned around and asked me if what I was purchasing was on sale. I told her no and she handed me her coupon. It was for 25% off my item.

I thought that was so cool. It may seem like a little thing, but God knows that I'm doing my best to keep every penny accounted for. Today He gave me a $5 pack of invitations for less than $3. Just one more way He is reminding me that He hears and cares about each part of our life.

One more thing, remember that "thing" that consumed my heart and mind over the last few weeks? Well...God took care of that too. I still don't have the okay to share details, but I can tell you that God came through. BIG TIME.

It's seeing Him in what we view as little things that build and strengthen my faith.

praising the Father for meeting your needs today... especially the little things... and doubly especially that thing that's been hanging over your head. I'm sure it's a load lifted off your shoulders.

Thanks for reminding us that God is in the details--small and big. I've never been to Hobby Lobby. Maybe I need to check it out next time I am in Atlanta.

Sooooooooo true! We went the other night to a senior citizens auction and won Braves tickets for $50. There were 4 tickets BEHIND the dugout, a parking pass (valued at about $240). The cool thing is...it's my son's 13th birthday August 10th so that is his present. He wanted to go last year but we could not afford $200 for tickets. It was a lesson for him too!

You are so great about giving credit where credit is due.

PS-Hobby Lobby has 40% off coupons on their website. Don't leave home without it! :)

Oops, I should have checked before I wrote 40% off. I thought that's what my mom told me, but I just went to their site and it's a 25% off coupon. Sorry! But it's still something!
