Yes to sharing!
  Sharing is caring. 
Wise words from a two year old at our church.

I couldn't help but smile when I saw my hubby walk through the front door carrying two heavy grocery sacks.  He was coming home from the church and hauled back the food I asked him to bring.

Only a few hours earlier I received a phone call from my m-i-l saying one of the church ladies had given her beans and carrots and asked me if I wanted some.  I said sure.

I never turn down food.

She said she would divide it up and leave our share at the church.

 I was standing at the table going through the bags when I remembered the prayer I said earlier that day.  It's a request I make often when I pray for our family.   I said Lord please bless us financially. It's not necessarily a selfish prayer.  The Lord knows our finances and our living situation and from time to time I'll ask Him if He sees fit to send a little something our way.

 As I stood there I imagined God looking down from above, winking at me.  God doesn't always give us what we want, but he always gives us what we need.  Sure, it's not a million dollars.  A million dollars would have been totally ok with me, but this is nice too.

It's nourishment,

it's generosity from a friend,

and it will save a little on the grocery bill if ever so slightly.

Yes to free!
Free is always good.


Thank you Lord for your provision.
This family of five is truly thankful.
