A Generous Surprise This Morning…

Posted by: Julie on Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

img00080.jpgThis past weekend when I was campus pastoring at the Yellow Box, my left shoe (in the pic at the right) fell apart just before it was time to start the services Saturday night.  These shoes are my favorite shoes – the only brown sandals I have!  I bought them at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Tulsa a couple of years ago – normal price was $8 but they were on clearance for $2!  I love a good Wal-Mart deal.  They have been close to wearing out for a few weeks now, but I haven’t yet made it to the end of my shopping fast (August 9th!) so it isn’t yet time to purchase a replacement pair.  Well, just before service I was running around upstairs and the left shoe fell apart.  I fixed it with some clear packing tape (as you can see in the picture), and I was on my way!  But it may have been kinda noticeable from stage, as the packing tape was a little shiny and crackly-sounding.  Well, I’m not sure who noticed it this weekend, but this morning there was an anonymous REALLY sweet card and a $40 gift card to Shoe Carnival in my mailbox at the church!  I couldn’t believe it!  (For one thing, I can’t remember the last time I spent $40 on a pair of shoes, but I suppose if they’re non-Wal-Mart, then they’re probably about that price.)  But more importantly, I was completely blown away by this generosity!  Whoever you are, thank you so much.  I really appreciated your encouragement in the card, and I really appreciated your generosity with this gift.  I’m so thankful for our generous church family at Community!

What a sweet story. God is at work.

Thanks for living your Christian life out of the cage we seem to have put ourselves in. We need more adventure and risk in our walk to inspire and draw others.

Thanks Julie

I went with the Nigerian scam. I played along , and when their look at for about 30k arrived, I called the bank who had issued it. They not surprisingly reported it was a forgery. We contacted the FBI. I dont really know what happened future , I was glad for being away from it.

All things are unscripted and completely real. There’s no director and no scripts, just real solo. Watch their encounters flush, their toes curl and their bodies sheen with fret as they release orgasm after orgasm. Preview what’s coming upwards throughout the site before everyone else, and stay updated with the newest news from Abby Winters
