Out of the ordinary

It was one of those moments when the Lord nudges my heart.

In need of new hardware for the grey buffet, we’d gone to Hobby Lobby.

I pray a lot when I’m there, because they have so many lovely things.

I’m always on my guard about what God would have me purchase, and not going with my own desires.

This time, I felt led to buy some pretty paper.

At first I couldn’t figure out why.

But I prayed again and got some.

It was later that the Lord brought to mind the reason.


Due to our move and my inability to talk on the phone, I’ve been writing more letters.

Although, plain lined paper is useful it lacks “pretty”.

I’ve been praying about how to “pretty” up my snail mail.

The paper sat, forgotten until this week.

I’ve had a migraine for most of the week and have been resting as much as possible.

But as I felt better, I was able to make some cards and “pretty” paper.

I showed my hubby last night and his words really blessed me.

“…Honey, it’s these little things you do that bless people.”

Smiling, I lacked the words to express myself, but managed to respond:

“I hope so.”

Luke 19:17 NKJV — “And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant; because you were faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities.’”

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for these kind words of my husband. Lord, I so want to be used by You to bless others. Lord, You know my failings. You know my restrictions. You are aware of every detail of every part. Please continue to use me as You see fit. Please help me to hear Your voice and to walk in Your ways. Lord, I don’t want to sin against You in anything, not thought, not word, not action. Please hone my heart and help me to walk in Your ways. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.
