1000 Blessings Friday & Friday Fill Ins


296. I'm a wheeler and a dealer and always try to get the best bargain I can. We needed a nice printer for our business and I was able to get one. A nice one. Dirt cheap! It is a Samsung all-in-one laser printer. Original price was $999.00. After all my deals and negotiations I was able to get it for (drum roll please)....$237.00!!! Thank you Lord for this huge blessing!

297. We made a trip to Pennsylvania a couple of weekends ago. We were delivering a car to our customer so we were pulling the trailer. We stopped for dinner and noticed that a tire on the trailer had a split in it. When my husband changed it the back of the tire was ready to explode. I don't want to even think what might have happened on down the road. Thank you Lord for drawing this to our attention!

298. When we stopped for diesel our truck decided to die. It was very late in a remote part of town with nothing...and I do mean nothing nearby. Some sweet little man that barely spoke English stopped to help. It took a really long time to jump start our big diesel truck with his tiny little car, but we did. Thank you to the kind man for his patience and thank you Lord for helping me keep my sanity and patience by sending him our way!

299. Also on this trip I was able to see my dearest friend, Teresa and her family. I met them years ago when we all went on vacation together without even knowing them. But that's a whole different post. It was great to spend the day with them and I can't wait to see them again!

300. Our Awana clubs start next Wednesday and I couldn't be happier or more excited. We got together last night to discuss our plans and decorate our room. Our theme this year is Handmade By God, the only label that counts. There are so many wonderful Bible stories that are centered around hands. It is going to be a wonderful year!!! Can you tell I am excited?

1. When I'm sick I'm truly thinking that others are in worse off situations and thanking God that this is just temporary.

2. When I take a walk, I think about how much further I am able to walk without my crutches! My back still gives out, but I can walk for almost a half of a block now!!

3. Money can't buy happiness but it can help out others who are having a hard time.

4. Cotton makes me feel like home and leather makes me feel a little rebellious!

5. The strangest person/character I've had lewd thoughts about was ...honestly no one. Sorry.

6. My favorite color these days is and always will be blue because plain and simple, it just makes me smile!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to spending time with my husband, tomorrow my plans include keeping up with the laundry and paperwork and Sunday, I want to go to church, relax in the afternoon and go back for the evening service!

Great deal on the lasar printer..The one we have was twice that, and it's time to get another one.

Have a great weekend Amy!

Love your post!
Enjoy the start of Awana. My daughter is done with that but what an awesome program. She did it for our first 2 years at our new church and learned so much. I loved being a Cubbies leader and miss it but we are now into a different ministry.
You are imparting great Truths for these Awana kids....God bless you!
