Are Your Tweezers in the Washer????

I’m at home today.

Heading to the doctor in about an hour.

I’ve been fighting a cough and head cold for three weeks now, and I finally decided that I probably need more than an occasional Tylenol.

As I was thinking of what to write today, I ran across these pictures from the morning before Erich’s reception and I was reminded of how God used tweezers in my washer to help me prepare for that particular day.

See, the Friday night before the reception I had looked everywhere for my tweezers with no luck.

On Saturday morning as I was switching some laundry from the washer to the dryer, I felt a poke on my hand and, lo and behold, there lay my tweezers…nestled quietly between the folds of two blankets.

I felt the need to take a picture (imagine that!), but at the same time, I didn’t really know why.

When I went to take the picture, I realized that my battery was almost totally dead in my camera and had I not taken this picture I wouldn’t have had my battery charged for Erich and Mallory’s reception.

I was thankful that very moment for tweezers in my washer, and I knew why I had wanted to take the picture!!!

So, today, as I sit here sniffling, coughing, and feeling rather “blah,” it seemed like a perfect time to say,

Be thankful for things like tweezers in your washer!  You never know how God might be using them to make some other part of your life a little better!”

Ephesians 5:20

…….always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

(After the last two posts, you may never ask me to do a load of laundry for you, but it was a risk I had to take. 🙂  )

    My nephew and sister-in-law are on their way to our house, so I’d better be feeling better quickly! 🙂 Tomorrow Evan turns 21!!
