This might not excite some of you… but I had a very nice surprise a few days ago. While looking for something else on the Stampin’ Up! website, I learned that they are rewarding their demonstrators with a free set of stamps based on the amount of sales they had during their just-ended Sale-A-Bration campaign. With lots of help from my friends (thank you all very much), I earned a free set! Woo-hoo!
And, it’s not the lowest reward offered… it’s the next step up! — so I get a free stamp set valued up to $31.95. Of course, if you know me, you know I already had a set on my wish list that was just under that price. It’s a larger set that I just wasn’t ready to pay the cost of yet. So now it’s FREE!!! I don’t even have to pay any shipping or sales tax on it.
One of my favorite scriptures is Psalm 37:4, Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart, so, I shouldn’t be surprised at getting what I’ve been wanting at a price I’m willing to pay (zero!). God loves us and wants us to be happy. I also believe He wants to amaze us every so often with gifts that we know come from Him. But still, every time it happens, I’m amazed that God “is mindful of me” and blesses me with things I want instead of only things I need. I just have to be patient and wait for His timing.
Hope you’re blessed today in some unexpected way, too!
