Are you ever just drawn to people or places and are so glad you decided to listen to your heart...I have been reading this blog of someone who happened upon my blog. She is such an inspiration and this blog entry really does portray the true meaning of the 30 Day Random Act of Kindness.
I know it's a tough time financially right now for many in our nation, including us. But God is faithful and when we choose to place HIM first He provides all we need!
WOW! I can't begin to tell you how faithful the LORD is! I will give you a quick peek into our last couple of months and you will see how God has provided in so many ways! He is good! Even in tough times!
Well, it has been tough on us financially lately. With little room to spare in our budget for extras, a recent flat tire ($200.00) and a light tap/ fingernail scratch (accident) to another car (me :() ) this last weekend ($600) has put us in a tough spot. Not to mention we had about 10 dollars in our account until next pay period and just enough food to scrap by on some canned foods and bread. I am not exaggerating. I don't like talking about how we struggle financially when there are people all over the world without half of what we have, so I know I am blessed to have so much. However, this is a time I want to share to show the faithfulness of God and how He cares about all the details of our lives! Anyway, we I made some decisions not to go placed to save on gas, so we would make it to the next pay period, and on Saturday, while at home, I went to check the mail (which is right outside our house) and I found a envelope that said, "Thank you Price family for all you do" I opened it, thinking it was a thank you note from one of the players on Tu's team. Well, I still don't know who's hands dropped it in our box, but I know it was a direct answer to prayer and a true gift from GOD!
Thank you JESUS! Inside the envelope was a $40.00 gift card to Trader Joe's(groceries) , and a $50.00 (gas) gift card to Shell. As I held it in my hands all I could do was cry, and say...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~THANK YOU JESUS~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It was the two things that we desperately needed to get us to through. Man, I stand in awe of the Lord's faithfulness! God is soooooooo good! I went to Trader Joe's Yesterday and got some food for the week as I was walking out the Lord spoke to my heart and gently reminded me of three things:
**********1. Prayer of Wisdom: The importance of praying for our needs and asking Him for wisdom and balance to know how to manage the funds He provides
2. Prayer of blessing: Praying blessing upon those who have blessed us!
3. Prayer of being a blessing: Praying the Lord would show us who and when to bless someone else with what He has given us!
4. Prayer of Thanks: Just praising Jesus for all we have and all HE is!!!
I am overjoyed and thankful to the Lord for providing, I pray the Lord blesses those who gave ten fold, and I pray that I continue to pray and rejoice in His faithfulness to Provide! God is sooooooo good! Luke 11:9-13!!! THANK YOU JESUS!
Thanks for praising our Provider Our KING; JESUS!

Isnt this so beautiful and the fact that someone just dropped it off, not wanting any recognition but wanting to help a family in a time of need. That is what I call COMPASSION and an ACT OF KINDNESS.
I HOPE YOU WILL VISIT HER WEBSITE SOON. I HOPE I GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET TO KNOW HER BETTER. I SO APPRECIATE HER BLOGGING ABOUT HER FAITHFULNESS AND LOVE FOR JESUS SO THAT WE COULD ALL SEE GOD'S LOVE AND ANSWERED PRAYERS.
Again I hope you enjoyed your day, our day was wonderful and filled with laughter from my 2 very energetic girls boxing each other on the Wii. The best sound in the world and like my friend here we are so blessed and thankful for another day to experience God's love!!
