I was going to write a pantry post this evening but I had something so neat happen today, I had to share it (I'll write the pantry post tomorrow... God willing and the creek don't rise!).
It never ever ceases to amaze me how God meets needs in His time. I was sharing with a friend how I had goosebumps because of something that happened today. It all happened because I had some unexpected money come in...
On the way to the grocery store, I had this feeling to stop by the Mission Thrift Shop. I haven't been going to thrift stores or garage sales or anything because of a severely limited budget. So... I haven't been at this thrift store in awhile.
Now, another thing you should know is I had been "telling God" that I'd love to find more old Victoria magazines, just like I had found some on the free rack at the library last year. Are you ahead of me, yet? There... on the shelves where the Mission Thrift Store keeps donated magazines... were YEARS worth of old Victoria magazines for a dime a piece (a price I could afford!).
As I told my friend, you have to think of the fact that God would lead someone to donate their old magazines to the Mission store just at the time to be put on the shelf when I actually had extra money. How many women still have Victoria magazines from the late 1980s and early 1990s?
So often we go through difficult times in this world but then there are those amazing instances where something happens which can only be a "God thing". There is just no other way the circumstances can come together without Divine intervention. It always shows me I'm on His path... this isn't Heaven, yet... but He will make Himself known.
I am feeling much better but still weak enough that chicken soup sounds good. I treated myself to the luxury of a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store. It is now simmering away to become chicken noodle soup. The temperatures have cooled enough to make soup once again comfort food.
I've given up on the downstairs maids so I must go check to see if it is time to add noodles. The house is ready for hubby's return and I have a feeling chicken soup will sound good for him, too. :)
