according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Yesterday afternoon Don received an email that said,
July 15, 2011
Your entry was chosen as a winner for a
$100 Mother’s Market & Kitchen gift card.
What can I say! I felt that our Lord had scored a touchdown for us. My arms went into the air and I couldn’t stop thanking Him! Don was dazed and Noah laughed. Our God reminded us that He is mindful of us and provides for us when we are in need and in ways that surprise us:
This morning I was thinking about going to Mother’s and getting the oat flour for my oat bread. I was wondering how I was going to pay for it — it’s been one of those months.
But God saw the need and provided — before I even had the thought or need! He knew when I listened to a Mother’s radio show* on thyroid health; got the coupon code word, clicked the “Redeem Your Coupon Code” banner, and followed the directions that I was automatically entered to win a $100 Mother’s Market gift card.
Last night I told Noah that the Mother’s gift card was like an oasis in the desert. “It’s as if you’re traveling through a desert, your water is almost gone, and you keep getting thirstier and thirstier. Then, there it is! An oasis! The water refreshes you and the dates in the trees nourish and strengthen you; now you can continue on to your destination.”
She said, “Cool, Mom.”
We are so thankful that He is mindful of us and loves to surprise us!
O LORD, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth,
Who have set Your glory above the heavens!
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
O LORD, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth!
~ Psalm 8:1,4,9 ~
Have a blessed day!
