A couple of days ago, I posted some of the things that are going on around here. One thing I didn’t mention is that we are in dire need of new living room furniture, you literally sit down on the couch and wind up sitting on the floor. Earlier today, I started cruising craigslist and a local trade paper looking for freebies or low cost couches/futons. The problem with freebies and low cost ones, is that they are usually in bad shape themselves. Stud and I have never had brand new furniture except our mattress/box springs. Our furniture has always been 2nd or 3rd hand stuff that was pretty much on its last legs when we get it.
Well tonight, Stud comes in from work and asks if my parents want a huge TV, I say prolly so, then they could actually see what was going on…. and then he lets me know that a guy he works with… his family bought their parents all new living room stuff… and need to get rid of the tv… oh, and by the way… they are giving us a sectional sofa!
I haven’t seen it, neither has he, but evidently the parents didnt’ want new furniture, they wanted to keep their original stuff, its in that good of shape!
Talk about intervention! God does work in mysterious ways! Here I was looking for freebies, and hadn’t mentioned it to Stud, and he comes home with the very thing I was looking for!
And besides getting a new sofa, I also got a faith boost. I’ve been feeling rather down and out about it, stressed beyond belief, and here, something I hadn’t even given thought to pray about, was answered!
