burlap is really popular in decorating these days. it's been in the back of my mind that i wanted a burlap purse. but i'm not gonna spend $40 or 50 or more for one.
it's so neat how God provides not only our needs but He throws in a few wants every now & then!!!
one of the guys at work got a package delivered to my office from a vendor. he came in to the office yesterday & i gave it to him. he opened it in my office & it was a burlap bag with a cosmetic bag with lotions. he said, "what the heck am i going to do with a PURSE?! i don't want this PURSE!!!" i said, "ohmygosh - i love it!!!" he said, "do you want it?" i said, "YOUBETCHA!!!!!" the wheels were already turning in my head how i would "redecorate" this plain bag with the vendor logo on the front & make it my new burlap purse!!!!
so here's the before:
nice big bag, ugly logo (well, not really ugly, just not what i'd want)
nice cosmetic bag, attached to inside with a cord so it doesn't get lost.
here's the after:
so there's my FREE, stylin' burlap purse that didn't cost me a dime!!!!! and i can carry EVERYTHING in it!!!!!
a few of the guys at work had seen the bag yesterday & they were pretty impressed with how it turned out!!! the guys at my office are cool!!!
(& the lotions -- they were sunscreen & after sun lotion & a tube of lip balm-----just what i'll need for next summer!!!!!!! God is sooooooooooo good!!!)
so how has God blessed YOU today?
how have YOU blessed others??
