I had to take a minute and blog about some of my most recent praises! First, I don't know if any of you remember my blog rant from October about how I had lost my change purse. Well, on Saturday night I cam home to a message on my answering machine. I almost deleted it without even listening to it because the first words I heard were a strange man introducing himself. We get lots of "courtesy" messages so as my hand was reaching towards the delete button I heard him say he was from "On the Border". Why is the Mexican restaurant calling me? Well, he went on to say he had my change purse! The one from three months ago! Fully intact! We serve an amazing God, not really sure why He wanted my change purse to be returned but I sure am glad!
Second, I had bought a DVD player for Josie. We used it a couple of times and it worked fine. Then I went to attach the battery to it. It refused to stay on. I could have rigged it but I was more than a little frustrated that it was defective. I was really frustrated that I had tossed the box (I am religious about saving boxes for expensive items and usually hang onto them for three months or until the warranty expires whichever comes first). I had purchased it at Target and I was more than a little concerned that they were going to refuse to take it back sans box. However, I took it back tonight and the clerk didn't even bat an eyelash. She slapped a defective tag on it and promptly refunded my money. Score!
Probably my most important praise is that a dear friend of my who is having some tough times agreed to come to PWOC (my Fort Carson Bible study). She attended this morning and is planning on coming back! I am so excited to be able to share God's love with her. I am defintely the most thankful of all to be allowed to pass on what is most important to me. Keep both of us in your prayers.
In all, it is just nice to be able to record what the Lord is doing for me. It may seem silly, but it reminds me of how gracious He is to care for even the tiniest details of our lives. I think it would be even more silly to not give Him all the credit!
