It's all how you choose to see it...

It’s 5:45 and my alarm goes off. As I stumble out of bed, inevitably nature calls. I head to the bathroom and am faced once again with this...

I begin praying to God for His help, envisioning Him blessing me with one of these...



Yet I am reminded of Isaiah 55:8- "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," because after all, sometimes God doesn't answer our prayers the way we had planned them...

Sometimes He blesses us in ways we had never imagined...

As I sat trying to decide how to 'fix' this situation I had found myself in- I glanced out the window to discover this...



And I was reminded once again that God is good ALL THE TIME in ways we could have never thought of ourselves.
(plus, this paper was even FREE!)

A special thanks to whoever blessed us when we needed it most!
