All the time. I just wanted to share. We all know that it's that time of year when we start thinking about what we can give each other. Well, I had two really awesome God things happen yesterday at church. Plus lots of other awesome things, it's just that these two really jumped out at me to share with you.
1. I really wanted to get Hannah a Christmas mug. We normally have a hot drink on Christmas morning, like Egg Nog lattes or something equally yummy. There were four big beautiful mugs that we bought years ago, but the paint was chipping on them and they were tossed at the end of last Christmas season. We had two whimsical mugs that are Christmas themed. I had been on the look out for another set. Then I decided that I was just going to get Hannah her own Christmas mug this year and we would have three all together. Yesterday, we went to church, someone walked in to the class I was in and asked if anyone needed ONE Christmas mug. Needless to say, Hannah loves it :)
2. As we were sitting in Joel's office yesterday. I decided that I would get him a new jar of candy. He likes to keep candy in the office and his supply was pretty much done. There was a luncheon after the service and we won one of the prizes, which was....a big container of Jelly Bellys.
I'm not sure exactly what it is that God wants me to spend my money on this season, but He has made it pretty clear that He's willing to help me out in some areas in order to insure that I will have the funds when it presents itself. I am thankful that God provides for me in such small ways, because it always reminds me that if He's in the mundane then He is definitely in the extraordinary.
