A penny saved is a penny earned!!

This is the picture I chose to use on our Christmas cards. I ordered 100 cards using the totally FREE deals that Money Saving Mom posted. 100 cards TOTALLY free!!!! What a blessing!

Speaking of blessings, this week I went in to Goodwill and found a much needed pair of LANDS END winter boots (in brand new condition) for my daughter for only $3.99!! I looked them up when I got home and found out that right now they are on sale at Lands End for $44... LOVE that $40 savings! God is GOOD!!

If you have a need today PRAY about it! Ask God to open up doors and watch for the ways he meets your needs. It is so much fun to see how God chooses to provide... he always does. The key is knowing the difference between a want and a need.... sometimes I perceive things as needs and they really aren't! God is FAITHFUL!!!! Sometimes God meets a need by giving us a fresh dose of creativity. Using your skills, abilities and resources is one way that God meets our needs. Sometimes making and re-purposing things our self is how God provides.... just some thoughts!

Have a BLESSED day, BE a BLESSING!

You're so right, but how easy it is to forget and expect God to dump the requested blessings and answers right in our lap!!! Kevin DeYoung had an interesting post on prayer here ~ good combination, your post with his!
