The giving tree....

The kids and I went to the front of the house to see the storm clouded sky. The kids noticed a box on the side of the house.
It has happened again...
I have a hand held mixer and of course my big kitchen aide mixer. Now we have a stand mixer like a hand mixer but for hands free.
Beloved insisted I call the police. Just encase it is stolen and left at our house to be picked up later. There have been no reports of stolen items in our neighborhood.

Well after speaking with the police we were told to post it on the blog encase any of you sweet dears left it for us. This is an expensive mixer!
Upon close examination it has a broken dial. Of course knowing Mr U it is sure to be reparable.

It may have been a display model it show a little use but I am not too sure that it was used it is clean.
Thank you who ever left this fine tool.
The officer asked to request a bow or note in the future so that we could be at ease in receiving it. If it is stolen someone is missing a nice mixer.
We may send it to the lost and found for 90 days but the officer said with it being new that there is little reasoning in it for any owner would not have an ID number or anything for it.
I guess we keep it.
The giving tree has offered many things over the years.
Plastic container (I had prayed for)
a dress (that was my size)
yard table and chairs
a mop
a rug sweeper

Now a very nice hand mixer replacement. I will be able to do two jobs at once.
Yes...I can just hear your giggling now...
"Only me:)"

Praise God for awesome surprises.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
