Sometimes it's the little things that remind you how blessed you are!

Sorry to be remiss in posting lately. I have just been really busy with the back to school stuff. Man life gets busy when school starts up again.

Today I got an odd envelope in the mail addressed by hand to me. I opened it and inside I found a gift card for Wal Mart. I turned it over and the amount showed was $100. I was confused. I could not figure out why it had been sent. The envelope had a business name and address in the return address spot; one that I did not recognize. Inside was only the gift card and a piece of business stationary folded over the card...no letter, no information. On the bottom of the business stationary there was a phone number. I was confused so I gave the number a call to inquire...I didn't want to have received a card that someone else was expecting. It turned out I had won a contest over at sheknows.com. I do enter their contest occasionally, but have never won anything and had not received any communication from them regarding my win! It truly made me feel so blessed.

I am truly feeling so blessed by my Heavenly Father right now. I know, it is just a gift card, and I had entered the contest, but such an unexpected blessing has reminded me how much He loves each and every one of us and how He knows exactly what we need, and so wants to bless us.

What a nice surprise for you. I agree too that blessings come when we least expect them, but when we need them the most. If anyone deserves a random $100 it is you!! See you at Walmart :).

Awe, Chris, that's awesome... what a nice blessing to be on the receiving end. That definitely puts a simple on my face. Sorry for the cliche' the Lord works in mysterious ways, he knows what you need, when you need it.

GranShoo sez, "It just blessed me when I read your story of the $100 gift card and how it made you realize that our Heavenly Father is watching over us and knows what we need and when we need it. We are so blessed to have HIS blessings every single day. Hugs."
