Unexpected Blessings

I’m typing a series of sermons for my pastor in which he teaches that the love of God is eternally giving and is a daily, provisional covenant from which we should expect provision, favor and blessings. Psalm 68:19 tells us that God “daily loads us with benefits.”

Therefore, we should expect to receive good things from God – and I do!

But the unexpected blessings mean the most to me…a phone call or card from an old friend, a luncheon where I’m treated, finding money in the parking lot.

This week I received an unexpected blessing and not only did it make my whole week brighter, it made my whole Christmas brighter!

In August I switched jobs, new hours, same pay, new benefits package, but I NEVER expected to receive a Christmas bonus! When I was told to check my account and see if the funds were there – I got another surprise as it was far more than I ever imagined much less expected.
Many may know that I prayed for God to find me a “nice quiet office” somewhere and this job was all I asked for and even though I’d rather be home and not have to work, I KNOW He is providing for me and I’m right where I’m supposed to be.

Have you ever received an unexpected blessing?

I’d love to hear about it!

Remember – Dec. 15th is the deadline for the Sony E-Reader contest;
Cindy K Green’s Christmas Jubilee is this week only
The White Roses in Bloom are Celebrating Christmas ALL MONTH LONG and I'm giving away an ADVANCE copy of Winter Madness to one lucky commenter - so drop on by!

And don’t forget to come back Saturday when we’re Spotlighting Wendy Davy and her book A Matter of Trust.

Until later, take care, God Bless and remember….tis the Season to spread Joy!

Merry Christmas!

I remember back in college it was near the end of the semester and I was completely out of money. I didn't want to call my parents and ask them to send $$ because I hadn't done a good job with budgeting. I figured if I had $50-60, it would get me through the last two weeks for food.

One night on the way home from the library, I found $60 on the ground--$5 here, a $20 bill there--all spread out over a few blocks. Who says prayers aren't answered, eh?
