    Love the tree! Love the story! Love it that your girls squealed with excitement when the men carried it into the house! But, most of all I LOVE it when God does special things like this just for us! He is so good!

    Thanks for sharing your heart. You are right-when you know HIM personally you know how He blesses you specifically. What an amazing God we have that loves us enough to send His son in such an awesome and unexpected way. And that same God wants to know us and have a relationship with us. I'm thinking more about these things everyday…

    It is a beautiful tree! Wow! Have you read the book One Thousand Gifts? I think you would like it. It is about recording all our blessings and being thankful to God. Ann Voskamp is the author.

    Great story! I wish it hadn't taken me so long to realize God's huge presence, but at least I hound him. I'm not convinced he knows my design style but you never know!

    What a sweet story Julie! I do believe that God gives us things that might seem trivial – He loves us after all and He is our Father and likes to give us treats as much as we like to give them to our children πŸ™‚ We are just so spoiled that we don't realize everything that He gives to us! Thanks for sharing this story and your faith πŸ™‚
