Uh huh :) 

Yep, this is what it has come to :) I finally got the glasses that were ordered before the virus took over. The company called me in mid March. “You’re glasses are here.”

The safest option at the time, based on all the information was to wait and get them later :) I had readers and could still see so they were not an “essential”

Thankfully when “later” came God had blessed me with masks. Hubby had found some on line. They were great. The masks had charcoal filters. A round filter thing for easier breathing. Sadly they ate a hole in the bridge of my nose in one trip to the store. Dreading wearing them again was an understatement.

My birthday was this past week and I had ordered myself some shoes. Keens to be exact. I love Keens. They last me forever. I have a couple of pairs that are going on 11 years old! They are pricey so that’s why it has to be my birthday or something special for me to splurge on a pair :)

Once at Keen’s website, they are running a 25% off sale. Blessing! I found some shoes and added them to the cart. In the cart it showed they were on clearance too and the savings was a total of 75%. Blessings! Thank You LORD.

The box arrives. I shred it open and there are these unexpected KEEN mask inside with my new shoes! Praise the LORD.8A22D988-6344-487F-9B55-832B6E1AD2DF

The masks are wonderful! AND there are 4 of them! They fit your face perfectly. No gaps under the eyes, on the sides, or the bottom. They didn’t eat a hole in my nose. Praise God.  Blessing! They are so comfy, you forget you have them on. :)

Blessing, blessing, blessing! Thank You LORD!

I also cut my hair. God blessed me with an outcome that is pleasing. For that I am thankful. We aren’t suppose be vain but does any one really like a bad haircut? :) It is the shortest I have ever attempted to cut it on my own. Although, was I really own my own? Not in the least! You know I asked the LORD to help me, and He was there every snip of the way :) Thank You LORD.

The picture on the left is from our trip to London back in January. The one on the right is after I cut my hair. Obviously the hair was a few months longer when I cut it, than in the picture from London but it gives you an idea of how much courage the LORD gave me :)

It always makes me stand in awe of God. The masks didn’t turn out to be what we thought but we thanked God anyway, and He blessed us with better masks.

I’m not a hairdresser but with faith, prayer, and belief all things are possible and God blessed me with a haircut that I like.

People want signs, miracles, mountains moved when in reality God blesses us every single day. In all kinds of ways. If we are willing to see it.

Now there are some that will say(because I have heard it) “do you really think God blessed you with 75% off shoes/masks/a haircut you like?

YES! YES! YES! I sure do. I am not special. God has blessed you too. With EVERYTHING. There is nothing that we have that God did not create or provide for us.

Thank You LORD for everything. I ask You to bless everyone that is reading this and every one who isn’t and give all of us eyes to see ALL that You do for us every second, of every minute, of every day.
