Prayer answered...

...problem solved.

Creative Clutter
I know you've heard the saying about creative clutter... Sometimes my creativity spreads from my office to the bedroom. (big cheesy grin) Last week (or the week before) after I completely cleaned my bedroom for the appraisal, I got to thinking about finding a way to keep it like that especially in the new house. I've put on my mental list of "things to do" to find a solution for bringing my coloring to my bedroom at night, but to easily remove it in the morning. I thought about it and then put it in the back of my mind because I have more immediate things to remember right now.

And then out of the "Blue"...
I got an email the other day from Louise, a fellow Gingerwoodie and blogger (Kard Krazy). She wanted my mailing address because she had something to send to me. I thought, "how sweet" she knows how crazy my life is right now and she wants to send me one of her beautiful cards to encourage me.

On Monday, a box arrived?!
I saw the box and assumed it was for my daughter from my sister because she told me she was sending something. It sat here for a couple minutes while we looked at the other mail before I noticed that my name was on the box. When I saw the return address, I thought, "What in the world???"

It's Purple... it's Black...

and it's PERFECT! I can't wait to load it up!
The amazing part is she didn't know I needed it and I wasn't even thinking about it now. This is one of those time were God proves to me that He is listening and working even on little seemingly insignificant parts of my life. Louise wrote in her note to me that she "bought a wheeled cart which included this handheld organizer" but she didn't need it or have room for it. She thought of me because of the color. She was kind and generous and sweet to make the effort to box it up and go to the post office to mail it to me. What she didn't know is that God was using her to solve a problem for me and I am extremely grateful for her generosity! Thank You, thank you, Louise!

That's a God Wink. He loves to do things that just stops us in our tracks to makes us notice Him. (So much better than those God smacks!)
