I was pretty upset before this happened about changes occurring in my neighborhood. So while walking I was thanking God for all He had given me and trying to redirect my negativity to "thank yous". Today was no exception, in the fact, that God did not let me down when I focused on Him. I found a dime, a penny, and a few other things too. But the most intereseting thing I found was a reminder of who's child I am. Here is the button I found. On it reads "I am God's Child". I guess He said it all for me.
But when computer went down I reverted back to my old ways.
Complaining! I finally drove to the library to see if I could get on up there. No mail connection but I did reach Fannie's blog and leave my message.
While I was at the library I thought to myself I may as well check out books. I found some rather interesting reads. Maybe God was redirecting my steps totally, bc I had not planned on going to the library. But before I stepped up to the desk to checkout guess what was laying on the floor in front of me. You guessed it!! a penny.
When I called my friend to share about answered prayer, I told her about my button find. Her response, "Button, Button who's got the button." Do you remember that children's game. We laughed and stood amazed at how God had answered my prayers from earlier in the morning, just not in my way. Another interesting thing - my friend told me of a mutual friend she saw at church on Sunday and while I was walking guess who I ran in to. Our friend and her daughter, who is expecting their first child, a son. Coincidence - I think not!
I picked a variety of books up while at the library. I had to post them. Moments of Grace by Neale Walsch, Haiku by Patricia Donegan, Painted Paper by Alisa Golden, and Invisible Acts of Power by Caroline Myss. I had just asked God to help me with my project I am doing with paper and the Painted Paper book was a brand new book just placed in the library. Just for me, lol. God does answer prayer, no matter how small the request.
This post is rather long today but there is so much I want to share about God. On the way home from the library I heard the neatest story on the radio.
Seems a couple actually have honey dripping from the walls in their home. They live in an historic home in CA and there are so many bees inside their walls that honey is literally dripping from their walls. Now that is a "honey-do list"!! They said they won't bother the bees bc they don't want the historic home damaged. That's one big honeycomb. They say when you walk up to the home is smells of honey. Maybe they should name the home "Sweet Nectar" or "HoneyComb".
