I got it for free!

Hallelujah! He is so worthy to be praised. You ask for a nickel, He gives you a dollar. You ask for a sandwich, He gives you bag of groceries. I asked for a washing machine and He gave me a washing machine and a 36" TV--for FREE! Say what?!

That's right, people. Craigslist came through for me. I had been checking it pretty regularly, but things were moving so fast. I was Blessed to find a posting for a free washer, dryer and TV on Friday. I emailed the guy and he responded right away. After about 4 or 5 emails, I had his address and my son was on his way to Purcellville, VA. I have no idea where that is, but I hear the homes there are big and beautiful.

I had my prayer circle going the entire time he was en route and back. His girlfriend went along for the ride. She called after they had loaded up the car and asked, "Ma, did you want the TV too?" Before I could respond she said, "cause we got it." LOL I didn't even know both the washer and TV would fit in my Pacifica. It's roomier than I thought.

Needless to say, all our clothes are cleaned and put away now. I just need to take down the curtains and give them a refresher.

It's true what they say: you really don't appreciate the things you have until they are gone. But, God, in his infinite wisdom, has provided us with so many blessings and we take them for granted every single day.

We complain about the high prices of gasoline; but forget to be thankful for a car to drive. We complain about the high rent and mortgages we pay; but forget to be thankful for a roof over our head. We complain and complain about so many things, but forget to be thankful that he woke us up and gave us another chance. It could have been another way.

That's all for now. Stay Blessed and happy.
