One of the biggest blessings that I saw actually happened a while ago. At the time we had a very old, horrible vacuum. I was always frustrated with it. Well, one day, a Kirby vacuum salesman came to the door and did his little presentation. I wanted one SO badly. I wanted a vacuum that I could use and make it really feel clean. I was terribly tempted to buy it for $1100. But, then, I thought about how it was more debt. It would be another monthly payment and it would be more interest. It was one of the more difficult things to do to turn that offer down. I was very disappointed. I really wanted a vacuum that would do a good job.
The very next day I saw that a friend of mine was selling her very nice Kirby with most of the attachments for $100. A lot of people asked for it, but I was the lucky one that got it. I truly felt that the Lord has blessed us because I did not go into debt and followed the counsel of the prophet.
A couple of months after that our DVD player died. We didn't have the money to get one so we waited and waited for months until we could save up enough money. It never happened, though, and I was wondering what to do. Then, a friend of ours offered their DVD player in return for something. We were so happy to have one that we didn't have to buy, and it works beautifully. The man was happy to get it out of his garage, and overall, it worked out more perfectly than I could have pictures.
The Lord is so good. I love how He is always finding way to show us how much He loves us, and I am so grateful.
