Where to start, whew, I am so over joyed and filled up and very thankful for the friends that God has put in our path, I have been blessed by them all this week, our life seems like the hymn, "Showers of Blessings", and God just keep pouring it down on me.
Okay I am going to start with the photo I have used for my Thankful Thursday, that is material a dear friend of mine bought so I can make a apron out it, and she will not let me pay her for it, now is that sweet or what, she is such a giving woman, she give us a wonderful wood picnic table Monday, last night she brought us this fabulous swirl, it consists of sausage, and biscuit mix, roll it like a pumpkin roll and slice it in 1 slices, bake and it is the most wonderful breakfast you can ever put to your lips, I put two fresh eggs on top of my dear husbands this morning, I ate it like a piece of toast, it is out of this world good. So you getting an idea of this wonderful friend. That is was just a few blessings, Tuesday some friends took us out to lunch, after we ate dinner we stopped at Good Will , we got some really good deals, and when I went to check out my lady friend told the cashier, I have hers too, wow, just unreal, oh but that is not all yet, whewwwww... Had to stop give God a little praise and wipe a few tears back, now continuing, with our blessings from God, and how he works through people. When we got back to our friends home after lunch and a time of shopping, my husband and her husband were talking and the subject came up about push lawn mowers, Chuck's arms hurt when using the weed eater a lot, so he wanted a push lawn mower, well this brother said well come on I have some in my shed, you can have one. So he has the push mower now, and his wife asked what size suit do you wear brother Chuck, he did not know, giggles, so I said a 42 regular, she said well try this suit on, I bought it for my brother and it was too small, and she had bought it when on vacation so could not take it back. Well you guessed it fit him perfect, looked like it was made for it, still has the tags on it and the legs have never been hemmed. So my dh has a brand new suit, Bass dress shoes, a push lawn mower, a full tummy, and a blessed soul, we both have been overly and undeserving ways by our precious heavenly Father, God has just poured out his blessings on us this week like I have never seen, and all we have did is to do his will, and try to be obedient to him, this is the blessings he has poured out upon us, I am thinking about the verse in Luke 6:38 "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again".
Find out just how much God has given you, and take what you need; the remainder is needed by others. There is always some one you can bless. Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier, for being with you. We have the God given ability to make others Happy, we should use this talent every chance we get, let us put others first, and it is amazing how you cannot out do God, he will not let you bless some one more than he blesses you, just no way can you out give him. When we give our all unto him, for his glory, he sure gives rewards and pours it out on us.
"You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give."
Amen and amen, Have a very Thankful Thursday, and may God bless you real good.
