Found money

Scene: One day remaining until payday, two days until company arrives.
Cue the sound effects: a constant grinding rumble from the refrigerator.

We bought the $100 appliance service plan from Lowes, but the receipt was NOT in our warranty file. I tore the house apart in vain. After much prayer, I remembered the expandable file I toted while shopping for the new house.

There was the warranty! Better yet, there was also a bank envelope with $90 inside. It was the last of my appliance budget, tucked away in the chaos of moving. I would have been happy with just the warranty, but I'll rejoice all the same!

I LOVE that the envelope you found the money in says "Thank you"! How true it is. Thank you, Lord, for caring for the lilies of the field.

As I read this post I found myself saying Thankyou Jesus! Then as I did I looked and I too saw the Thank you on the bank envelope!! Yes I agree the photo is a sermon in itself! Thank you sooooo much for sharing........I can't stop smiling and thanking Him. He knew the very day you put the warranty and the money away you would share your blessing with us when you found it too.
