I’ve missed miracle Monday, and perhaps some of my personal unhappiness is because I haven’t been looking for all the amazing blessings that god blesses us with.
Anyway, I trudged off to Walmart thinking of our bleak economic situation (seriously, it’s not that bleak people, it’s especially bleak until Mr. Tax return gets into our bank account — THAT will be a happy day!). Anyway, just wondering what God had in store for us (later, btw — P broke out with a giant fever, so I’m glad I didn’t pass that onto the babysitter and the other kids that would have been there that day, plus Drew had a REALLY stressful Thursday, in retrospect, it was one of those days I just needed to be home!).
ANYWAY, I get into Walmart and I think that maybe we could use some crackers, and lo and behold there are ONE DOLLAR peelies on the wheat thins (aka, the square crackers, they are always P’s favorites). I picked up like 12 boxes of them, because they are her fav’s, and we go through crackers pretty heartily lately.
Then, I make my way back to granola bars and there’s dollar peelies on those too. I just stopped and thought. I just thought about how much God loves me and he always takes care of me. Chocolate granola bars and all.
Tonight’s FHE is about Elder Ballard’s last conference talk about waiting upon the Lord. I am mostly taking the spin (for my kids) that I hope they realize how their needs were so miraculously taken care of in our move. I talk a lot about it on this here blog, but I just REALLY want them to realize it, and maybe embed it in their hearts for another ugly day. Because they are sure to come, and we could all use a reminder that waiting upon the Lord brings blessings.
In other news, I’m gonna make this yummy cookie recipe I found online. I was just THINKING about making cookies, but then thinking about how unhealthy they can be, but I could counteract that with some soup. Now I can have soup AND some healthy/ier cookies.
