There's a story with that line. And since, I am sure that everyone in bloggyland is hanging on to every word I write, I felt as though I MUST share!
My dear friend at The House that Jack Built, was notorious for getting really nice free goods. Friends, I am serious, when I say, that girl had a knack for finding everything from beautifully handmade kids houses, to porches, to furniture, to a swing set. Infact, it became a running joke amongst her friends that if it was for free...it was for (insert her name here) them.
I fondly, remember saying to her one day, "girl, you need to pray for us. I want the anointing of free stuff too!"
Well, THTJB, guess what? God answered that prayer!
Behold, the beautiful porch furniture and kids house that was given to us for FREE. I am so thankful at how the Lord gives to us, even the extras! He goes above and beyond. He is extravagant and I am deeply thankful!
Isn't it all just so gorgeous? Can you believe it?? I am so excited! I had to share. The kids and I scrubbed out the house. And the furniture is mostly arranged beautifully on our porch. One of the students from school even bought us some citronella candles as a gift - which was super sweet, too!
I'm so thankful!
