My reminder

A few weeks ago I was in a store at the mall (I love to go look but hate to buy anything, its just to expense to justify!), looking for new crafting ideas.   Anyways, I seen a sign I just had to have.  I picked it up, crossed my fingers and flipped it over, $3, so I bought it!  The sign now sits in the entryway, and I love coming in the door and seeing it.  It reminds me of God's love, my husband, and to be thankful because everything I have God provided for me!  It took God a lot of lessons for me to get the house the way I like it, like good things come to those who wait.  When we first got married we tried doing the rent-2-own thing for the entire house and then watched them take things back, as we couldn't afford all the payments.  Now we know to look at thrift stores, yard sales, and save up for the big stuff.   It took even more lessons from God to get my relationship to the great place we are at today.  Getting married young and not having great christian friends got in the way some, so did people giving bad advice (don't work on them, it won't get better, get a divorce, etc..) and not turning to God with our problems.   And even though God has always loved me, it was taken many, many lessons for me to realize what that love really means!  I know that I still have many lessons to learn, but having that reminder helps me to put my focus into trying to improve and learn from everything.  So what does this sign say.... 


Every life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers
