I Feel Like A Whipped Puppy

This week my family and I have been delivering phone books to make some extra money. Yesterday alone we delivered 800! Can you believe that? The funny thing is, is that at first I was not to happy about having to do this...that was until the Lord reminded me of a few of my requests recently.

  • Lord, I need to walk more because I really want to lose some weight.
  • I need to exercise Lord, but I don't want to do it by myself...I want to do it with my family.
  • We could really use some extra money right now God...won't you help us find a way.
  • I'm tired of being stuck in the house all day Lord...I want to get outside.
I truly believe God has a sick sense of humor, because every request I made to Him, he supplied a way to meet that request. It may not be the way that I wanted it to be, but He met it nonetheless.

So this morning as I drag my tired and beaten body out of bed and out the door for more phone book delivery, I am thanking God for giving me the exercise that I was needing, for allowing my family and I to do this together, for the extra money that doing this will provide, and for getting to be in the sunshine for a few hours a day! I am so grateful to His answer to prayers!

You are just too precious! You wouldn't make much money in this little town - our phone book is about 1/4" thick. No joke!
