Every good and perfect gift...

Sometimes blessings come in unexpected ways from unexpected sources.

On Saturday, I joined with several girls from my Sunday School class for a prayer breakfast. Amy's mom, Linda, came and shared a bit of her testimony. She was great -- very warm and engaging. In addition to sharing her testimony, she also shared goodie bags! Each package had an assortment of odds and ends: gum, pencil, chocolate etc... But the BEST part was the Starbucks gift card tucked inside! That's right! Without even knowing it, she blessed me with the one thing I was desperate for!

I am treasuring up my little Starbucks card. I plan to use it on Saturday. I have promised not to schedule anything on Saturday and have written the words "DO NOTHING" in my planner. Part of my "do nothing" day will include a delightful trip to my beloved Starbucks. I'm counting the hours until we can be together again.

Laurie,
You loved Starbuck's and let it go. It came back to you. Now it is meant to be yours.

wow! He is faithful! haha. I found that just writing DO NOTHING in my planner did not keep me from overscheduling Saturday down time... I actually write "do nothing" and then color the whole box in with Crayola! The wax cannot be written on... you wouldnt believe the faces of the girls as I tell them I am sorry I really cant meet with them because my pen wont write anymore on "Saturday!" Its great! love you, miss you!

Doesn't this mean you have something scheduled on your 'do nothing' day?

I think if we want to get really technical about my "do nothing" day, I'd have to be dead to actually do nothing.
