31 for 21:Thankful Sunday

I'm getting in under the wire!!!! But I'm in!  have to make it short and sweet this week, my Hubby is timing me. Since I'm using his computer, guess I can't put up a fight.

I had to run to the dollar store the other day. We've had a lot on our minds lately and pretty heavy hearts over our finances. Anyway, I got what I needed and was on my way to check out.  I didn't want to go down isles I didn't need, no need to tempt myself. I love the dollar store but you can easily get carried away.  Well I went to the last isle and then realized it was all gift bags and  I wasn't interested, so I backed up. Staring me straight in the eye was this   

I took it as a personal message.  I had to laugh because I'm always telling God to just give it to me straight. No hidden messages or things I have to figure out. I'm no good at that. I need it in black and white! LOL  Well I guess I got it.

It's a gift bag BTW!

And it was surrounded by other bags with inspirational messages on them. I don't know how long I stood there reading them,  because I am convinced Jesus is always in the background finagling things for us, I found a dollar in a pair of jeans before I went to the store. See He even covered the cost of the bag . 

So I am thankful for Jesus showing us that He is present in our lives , He knows our needs and He is with us, even in the Dollar Store.

Isn't is awesome how God gives us little "nuggets of gold" just when we need them. Beautiful. Hugs
