Cheerful Giver...

Hello Everyone!!
I have been SUPER busy lately, but even in the CRAZINESS of life...there are lessons to be learned

I have known for some time that I was placed on this earth to be a servant,
and I TRY  to do so cheefully!  I LOVE to share with others and I
will help you in any way that I CAN.

Unfortunately...I have a hard time accepting gifts or help from ANYONE even family. 
Now this is not necessarily a bad thing but...
the Lord wants to Bless ALL of his children
EVEN  his servants.  Right?

It is easy to Bless your family with a kind word, or a home baked dessert, or maybe help them financially if they are going thru hard times but has the Lord ever used you to be a Blessing to a stranger?  Well today I was reminded that the Lord does know our heart and he pays attention to the "simple" things that we get excited about.  I have been collecting rubber stamps for about a year now but lately there are more important things that we need so I had not been able to add to my collection. 

Today I had a new FRIEND stop by to bring me a gift...
yeap you guessed it...STAMPS!!!
I just have to say that...there is no question in my mind that this was from the LORD...
My friend Gloria
(she & I met through our husbands who work together)
 had no clue that I {heart} stamps! 

The reason I wanted to share this with you is because I want you to know that the "little things" that we do for others can make such a difference. 
I am EXCITED about all my new stamps but...
 ECSTATIC about the new friend God has placed in my life...

(there are 5 Close to My Heart sets and 15 Stampin Up sets)

(and 16 single stamps)

Thank you for stopping by....
Have a BLESSED weekend  :-D
