More Thoughts on Thursday

This is a postscript to this morning's post............
I met my friend at the thrift store where she proceeded to purchase a huge stack of unmounted rubber stamps for use at a small Christian school where she works on art with the students. She had permission to stamp the images so she could tell if they were something she could use. She and the guys who runs the place were talking as she showed him the stamped images and he gave her the stamps and a bunch or Rice Krispie Treats for the school. The thrift store we were at is a ministry, hence the gifted rubber stamps.
I have to back up a bit....I arrived at the thrift store first and dropped a donation. Jim asked if I wanted a receipt, I did not, so he offered a prayer, I said 'Yes'. Jim, I, and a woman who was going in for foot surgery, held hands and he prayed.
Afterward Kathy and I talked and had a delicious bowl of homemade soup. We talked and she told me I needed to pray hard and be specific.
Next I picked up my 2 grandsons and we hung out at my house. My sister in law and her son came over so the boys could play. Most of the time they got along good, MOST of the time. They boys colored eggs and they all turned out the same color......I think the pinky purple color was just really dominate so everything that went into that cup came out pinky purple. At one point grandson J pulled out his children's devotional book (that I keep front and center on the coffee table) and said "Let's do today's devotion." We haven't read a devotion from that book in over a month. Today's devotion is Proverbs 3:5: "Trust in the Lord with your whole heart and lean not on your own understanding."
Coincidence? Just last night I was thinking that if a person relies only on mere mortals (whether yourself or some other person) that person will always be let down. I don't believe it was just chance that 3 times I was given a distinct message.....God knows me and how hard headed I can be so He had to tell me 3 times. Nope, it's not the first time He has spoken to me like this.....I am so thankful He doesn't give up on me!
Tomorrow I have to stay home and be a housewife....the boys picked up some of their toys, but not everything. I don't care, it was worth it to spend the afternoon with them.

  1. Proverbs 3:5 is one of my favorite verses! He was definitely trying to "reach" you.
