Goodwill or God's Will?

When our daughter had to dressed like a saint, we chose St. Agnes for her.  Part of her costume is carrying a lamb on her arm so we tried every store in the area and we couldn't find one.  Two days before the event, I fell asleep at my FIL's couch and  hubby said "Are you ready to go?"  I replied "Okay, let's go to Goodwill."  My husband was puzzled with my reply but we went anyway.  And there we found a stuffed toy lamb, thanks God!
That was the first time we went to Goodwill.  As I walked around  and explore the store, I found this pretty blue vase.  I inspected it for any chips or damage but I found none, I looked at the price and it says $3, I said "Sweet."
I kept thinking, maybe it's God's will that we did not find any lamb in the store except in Goodwill because not only we found the lamb but also found the vase.  Sorry Lord, I didn't mean to associate You with material things.  I am just happy that we  find some good stuff for cheap unexpectedly lol.

  11. I think it's okay to thank God for those kinds of things. Thanking God is always a good thing. Saying "God, I want to find another vase at Goodwill" might be a little bit pushy, however.

  15. Good find. Sometimes I find interesting things to draw at these shops, or baskets to put my plants in. Great coz they don't cost much and when I'm done and I decide not to keep them, I just donate it back to the store.

  19. Hi! I found your blog following links.

    Serendipitous finds are always great. Especially when they are priced way below what is expected.

  27. Your first time to visit Goodwill Mommy Rose, hmmm I am a Goodwill diva. I find their stuff cheaper than Salvation Army. Anyway, I think God showed you the way where to find a lamb, and to tell you I haven't seen a lamb in my Goodwill conquest, it is intended for you ^_^ By the way love Rye's costume and choose of the saint. Happy Monday!

  28. When things like that happen to me I am reminded of just how much God loves me. Even down to the tiniest detail. So happy you were able to find the lamb and the vase.

  29. True, it is the will of the Lord that you find your stuffed lamb and that beautiful vase at Goodwill. To others, that is plain coincidence. But to those who trust in the Lord, it's called favor from God and men. You will experience more of that in your life as you keep on trusting the Lord for all your needs. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
