Some days are great, others not so much and by the end of the day, my prayer is “if it your will, PLEASE let tomorrow be better.” 😀 Do you relate?
I had 11 errands/stops on 5/15/21 and was pretty tired (ok, exhausted) by the end of my day’s jaunt.
At our house, I am working on redecorating, after purging, one room at a time. My husband was away and I was hoping when he returned, it would be a pleasant surprise to have a “new” look.
I bought extra goods like comforters, blankets, pillows, wall hangings etc, to try with the intention of returning those items that didn’t work. Some store policies nowadays have no problem using your credit card to return but the places I went to, specifically said I must have the receipt. No problem, as I’m very organized and keep those little gems.
I tried my merchandise at home and made my selections, and piled up the items to be returned. BUT the return pile didn’t have receipts! I spent about 2 hours searching everywhere possible. Nothing. And I got minimal sleep that night, backtracking all my steps of the 8 hour day, because it is so out of character for me to lose receipts.
The next morning, before I rolled out of bed, I said to Jesus “Good morning, I feel like I’m losing it sometimes and need your help in this smallest of matter please.” I dragged my bleary-eyed self from the bed and started looking again.
The sun was shining in the living room now and I saw a glimpse of paper, under the dresser, by the shredder. This was definitely not evident (like the only time I’d notice is if I moved the dresser to clean underneath and who does that other than to paint the room? 🤪)
Yes, it was my receipts in question! I burst into tears because I spent much time and energy on the the receipt searching project and Jesus showed me where they were!
After settling down, I looked at my banking receipt, also done on my long day of 11 stops. A nice young “WOMAN 👧” had done the transaction. Nothing unusual occurred.
But then I saw it…there was something most extraordinary. The receipt didn’t have my female bank teller’s name. Look at my picture above.
JESUS HAD TAKEN CARE OF ME! ❤❤❤❤❤
Thank you Jesus for ALWAYS taking care of me! I love you too!
