If you have been here before then you should know by now that I am a believer and I believe God is into details.
Our journey is still on going in designing and building a new home, just found land that we love or should I say the land found us....I believe God did this also and I think I would be correct in saying the seller thinks so too, since his account where he listed the land shut down right after posting and I had emailed about it:). The Lord closed the door on land we had already committed to, seller decided not to sell to us and now here we are with 4 acres in a little town we never even considered. Four acres of huge oaks, beautiful tree covered country roads, scenic drive to our place of rolling hills and hay meadows, and NO restrictions on chickens, lol!!
I really want some chickens for fresh eggs and a nice garden, maybe a barn full of cats and another dog?
Anyway back to details. This weekend I ventured out to a few tag sales, one in particular that I had been to last year caught my attention. When I pulled onto the street, there were about 13 cars waiting in line for the gate to open, I knew the competition was going to be fierce. Finally right at 8:00 the gate swings open and we all start flying in, one lady zips in front of us that had not been waiting and had us all in a huff!
I went in and was disappointed at first not eyeing anything I thought I could use. Then I saw a vintage cooler on a stand with a storage underneath, thought this would be cute on our screened in porch, a Cuisinart coffee maker "Two to Go" new in the box, vintage stand for mail, and was just about to pay when I spotted a box underneath the table, a large new box. I walked over and opened it up and could not believe my eyes! I found this beautiful glass disco ball that is about 22 inches in diameter. New!! The price was less than a tenth of what it would cost me new so of course I nabbed it up:)!!
I had seen one of these in a magazine a few months ago and thought how cute this would be in Mavis' new room. After looking online though and seeing prices, just tucked it in the back of my mind knowing that I had to prioritize where to spend the budget and spending $$$ on a trinket would not do:).
So what am I saying??? I just think the Lord is such a sweet, kind, generous Heavenly Father that knew by giving me this would just burn in my heart that this was something only He and I knew I wanted and that He loves surprising us with little detailed gifts that we have not mentioned to anyone. Most of those sweet gifts are my children laughing so hard with me that we have tears running down our face or the grandchildren calling me to see if I want to ask them to come over because mommy won't let them invite themselves, lol. Watching little A make his first goal in soccer (even if it was an accident), big A talking about the Bible and loving on his baby brother. Being contacted by a teacher at our co op about how they love having our kids in their class.....I'll take all He has for me. I feel my cup runneth over with how He loves me.
My friend He does not love just me this way, He loves all his children this way. You just have to fellowship with Him, abide with Him and wait and watch. He Loves You !!
