We often-times read this verse in scripture and don't really stop to ponder it. We just kind of say "yea, I am or will be blessed beyond measure".
This verse came to mind on Wednesday while I was....being blessed beyind measure!
When we were preparing to move back to Florida I literally sold everything. We brought no furniture, no household items....nothing. The grand total of what we brought consisted of my sewing things, Ronnie's garage and Kyle's toys.
I did bring one set of pots and pans also. As soon as we arrived my best friend brought me over 4 plates, 4 forks, 4 spoons, etc and some spare plastic and glass cups, and a few other misc items. (yay!!)
I still needed to buy EVERYTHING for a household. everything! things you take for granted that you have....a shower curtain, cookware....I went to bake chicken and realized I have no bakeware!!!
suff like that.
So...here is how awesome God is..........
I got an email Wed from Lisa about a lady in our homeschool group who is having a HUGE moving sale. She's moving to NC and wants to take nothing but her furniture and essentials for the home.
Her husband is a chef!! so they have tons of kitchen items!
I called to talk with her and let her know that my husbands first paycheck won't be for two weeks but that if she had anything left at that point I would like to buy whatever household items she has.
.......................ready for this???........................
She called me back about an hour later and told me to come over THAT night and go through everything that they would be putting in their yard sale. Her and her husband had spoken and decided that they would rather see the stuff go to someone who actually needs it that someone who wants to haggle over a quarter!
I couldn't believe it! I got there and was completely and utterly overwhelmed with their generosity! She gave me a complete set of dishes, bakeware, tupperware, organizers for the home, food, bathroom items, homeschool items....boxes and boxes and boxes of things that we need!
We filled up the entire back of Ronnie's truck AND all of my Liberty!
Would you ever think this type of thing would happen???
I was almost in tears at the sheer thought of the blessing!!
It's like "here you go, Lisa....your needs are met".
