3 Dimes – 2 Days

 

Yesterday as I was running errands, I found two dimes in two separate locations.  I didn’t think much of the first one. I was in a store where people could easily drop change.  The second, I thought, it may be a dime from heaven.  But, again, I was in a store where people could easily drop change.

This morning, I found a dime in my bedroom! Continue reading “3 Dimes – 2 Days”

Angel in Disguise or Friendly Neighbor?

Last Spring, after seven years of marriage and renting an apartment, my husband and I finally bought our first home, a condo. My office allows employees to take leftover boxes from deliveries before they are thrown out. Once a week, I scoured each floor of the office in search of free boxes to start packing up our apartment. The timing had to be perfect: 1) the contents of the boxes had to be unpacked (there were days I stalked the delivery guy, waiting for him to unpack the boxes and put them in the designated area and 2) you had to get there before someone else did!

I started praising God like this on the morning of March 3.  The same day my beloved kitten, Scout died (read more about his story at Lessons from a Kitten).  The first day I asked God for something good to happen I lost my kitten, suddenly and unexpectedly.  But that didn’t stop me from repeating it again and again.  In the beginning, I would remember to say it on most days. Like any new habit it takes time to become routine. 

I feel like praising God instead of worrying, begging, complaining to Him helps manifest what we want and need quicker.   The past few days I’ve been in a slump as it happens to most people.  I was complaining and worrying a lot more than usual.  Then, it dawned on me (probably after all the hours I spent listening to Joel Osteen) “I am going to be happy now.  Continue reading “Today Was a Good Day”

Blessings After Work

After a particularly stressful day from work I saw three encouraging signs on my way home. The first is the license plate above, “BI F8TH.” I wasn’t sure what this meant so I asked my trusty advisors, my Dad and brother 🙂 One interpretation is “Blessed Faith.” The other “By Faith,” short for by faith alone. What do you think this license plate means?

I took a few steps and then found Continue reading “Blessings After Work”
