Rejoicing in the LITTLE things that are really the BIG things!

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

As many of you know, my husband lost his job over 3 weeks ago, and I've felt bad that I wouldn't be buying my kiddos gifts this year. We decided at Thanksgiving that we would exchange names and that would be our gift to each other [although LOTS of them are deciding to get everyone a gift--SO sweet!]

Well, GOD is SO good and WONDERFULLY faithful to give us the desires of our heart--the ability to give each of our children a gift! We use our Cabela's credit card through the year [paying it off monthly] and earn points. Well, we earned $175 worth of points this year. Last night, I got on Cabelas, and went to their Bargain Cave, and to the rock bottom prices! I got the following:

3 AWESOME Gaiter hats normally $39.99 for $6.99 each

2 Cabela's hoodies normally $49.99 for $20.88 each

2 Cabela's hoodies normally $59.99 for $18.88 each

1 AWESOME camouflage hoodie normally $99.99 for $33.99 [and guess what! I just went to the site to get the picture and they RAISED the price overnight to $49.99!]

1 pair of Kamik Youth Sonic Radar boots [for Mary] $69.99 for $17.49

1 fishing tackle bag w/boxes normally $49.99 on sale for $24.99.

I had a $20 cash rebate. So with shipping and tax my GRAND total for ALL but Sammy's gift, came to…

…ARE YOU READY!!!!!!??????



I got $550 [with shipping and tax] worth of VERY good quality, USEFUL items for $5!!!!!

Is our God an AWESOME God, or what!!!!!! :-)))))

Thank you guys for REJOICING with me! I know that to some, this would be the last thing to think of when we are without a job--but I'm so blessed that God is in every single detail of our life! And NOTHING is too small for Him! Praising His Name from whom ALL blessings flow!

Love you all, Susan

    I love hearing stories like this. This will definitely be a spiritual marker your children (and you and hubby) will recall and treasure for years to come. I will be praying that the perfect job will come open at the perfect time as well:)

    Dear Lord, thank you for showing yourself strong on behalf of Susan and her family!

You have so brought to life the verses in I Thessalonians 5:16 - 18 Be joyful always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. Thanks for the reminder that even in the toughest of times - God is right there with us! emoticon
