Craigslist Free ; a field to glean

One mans junk is another mans treasure
One mans problem can be another mans solution.

Remember the old Story of Ruth in the scriptures. She had the humility and loyalty to glean. It is a simple task really. The main thing one needs is humility. Walking into the service of another.

A single mom needed this thing out of her second story apartment. She put it on for free as a joke thinking no one would be interested. This is exactly what I saw for $200 except it was painted white.
I said that would be perfect to my Papa God, He knew. He served us all. Now I had no idea what this would be like. Just as Steve was leaving to make a dumpster run for her, the very thing she was concerned about happened. She was served with summons for a ticket.

Steve felt so bad. She thought it was Steve knocking returning after doing the dumpster run for her. While gone he saw himself giving her all the cash in his wallet. Now mind you we very seldom have cash on hand. He had returned some copy ink. He was able to make a difference. She refused it and He asked her to let him bless her.

The Box was half full of toys and whatnot's. Dash kept everything in the left bag while the other bag will be passed on. On the table NO JOKE was a microphone (I once wanted to get one for Dove).
A very pretty stone bead. Pencil erasers that I literally had just made mention to HIM that I could use more of. While decorating my master bath Monday I wished I could make a triad of shells :) the third one was right in there. I told Dove we needed to get her a few more pony tail holders. That I would get her some when I go to the store. Oh by the way she loves red. See the pony holder on the corner.
There was a crane that is a remote control, a remote car.

I had made note of needing to get a few infant toys for when my Great Nephew comes to visit.
Get this there is even the dry eraser that I had spoke aloud of...that I missed the one I used to have on the end of my black marker.

A little butterfly button that can be used in the kids bathroom theme. A small tape recorder for me to use if needed when at an appointment or something. I am very forgetful under stress. Several times family and friends told me to get one.

Being loved by God is like
'Christ'mas every day!

Thanks for sharing.

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
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
