The empty cupboard isn't always as it appears...

Pappa Hubard went to his cupboard and at first glance, it sure did look bare, for breakfast... But then remembering God's grace and favor, he looked deeper and found two packets of pancake mix and then digging deeper, found that birthday gift his son bought for him a year ago at a yard sale...a waffle maker... Now he and the 4 kids are not just full...but very content! Thank you, Father!

Hey what's new?

Saturday, May 2nd, 2009

Kyle's has posted his latest blog, but I warn you…you will laugh and then realize that your are also being challenged… So why not challenge or encourage him by leaving a comment, he will appreciate it.

I also need to thank God for a wonderful, grace filled day. Our church had their yard sale today to raise funds for our annual Harvest Festival, which if you have never been you are missing the best community event…everything is free and it's a fun alternative for the whole family on Halloween. Anyway, last night we had a heavy storm come through and they were calling for more storms today, but we just prayed and got up at 5:30 am ready to have a great day. We set up an Usborne Booth, under our tent…just in case and ended up needing it to keep the sun off us instead of the rain. The weather was great. But we have to admit that we really didn't expect a lot of sales, after all this was a yard sale event attracting the bargain hunters, but with God's favor we had a great day, our books sell themselves, they are of the highest quality and our customers recognize this fact. Of course we had a few who tried to talk our prices down, can’t blame them, but when we told them we couldn't they understood and bought anyway. So after 8 hours we had a very beneficial day, we were blessed and in turn we are able to bless our church. This is a direct result in our being faithful on Thursday, Payday…in these tough times, our income is not enough to cover our bills, but we were determined to be faithful to God and pay our tithes before paying our bills… Having no idea how this was going to work, but we know that if we are faithful, He will show us favor. Not 4 hours later we got a call from a customer who we never had contact with, but heard about our books through another customer. She wants to hold a book sale at her apartment club house, not so she can get free books or to get free books for the complex but just as a community outreach…when she heard that she could earn free books she decided that they will find charity that they could bless. But the bottom line here is that we didn't have to do anything to earn this event, no phone call or visit made on our behalf. God is so good. Then on Friday Paula went to work an event with our supervisor and we were blessed with two recruits who wanted to join this business. So here we are three days after being faithful and we have rec'd favor all three days… Praise God!
