Yummy! I just finished eating the BEST salad. I LOVE when food is better than you were hoping it would be! I even had multi-grain Crackers to go with it.
Let's be honest. The "Multi-grain" is probably some crumbs they had left from a previous batch of something, so they put it in the crackers and called it multi-grain, making people think it would be healthier, and then buy more...YEP, I'm one of those suckers!
No, my life would have gone on without having gotten these, BUT I have a Heavenly Father, who allowed me to have something that I wanted.
I learned another lesson in FAITH, that He wants us to have some things that our heart desires.
Yes, I KNOW they are just "things" but these are SPECIAL THINGS made by a person who BELIEVES, Trusts and uses her talents for good...to put smiles on the faces of people...who is exactly as she claims to be. Wendy is one of those special people who always goes the extra mile and turns the other cheek. She is willing to be used as an instrument of peace--I have seen it!
I in no way want to EVER compare myself to the hell that JOB experienced in his life, but it is a lesson we are taught in the Bible about faithfulness. We ALL go through tough times, and there are always different people around~~some just can't wait for us to fail, or to see bad things happen to us, some cheer us on, even though they have nothing specific to offer, other than support, and those who do what they can to help.
We need all of these people in our lives. Yes, even those nasty ones, whom I believe, are in our lives to keep us focused on our journey and to remind us that we CAN make it because the 23rd Psalm tells us that He prepares a FEAST before our enemies.
WOW...just WOW...I am so glad that I am learning that good things happen to me, not because of something I have done, but because of special people who are, well, just special!
Thank you, Wendy. I don't think you truly know what a blessing this is to me, but I hope that I have explained it some.
Oh, and I went and bought Charcoal some treats with that other $100 I had stashed away, because, I have tried to make sure he has what he has needed, and he deserved some new treats, too!
Now, I need to see what I can create with these items
and MAYBE I will have a craft post for this week!!
