And who then is willing to consecrate his service this day unto the Lord? 1 Chronicles 29:5
It doesn't seem to me that it is money, or time, or strength, or talent, that is lacking, it is the consecrated heart. A heart that is given first to Christ, and secondly, to His work, whatever form it may take, or whatever may be the door that opens.
The top of Bud's (iguana) house was a catch-all for things so I cleaned it off and Dimples the cat thought she was hiding from me by sitting on top of some of my picnic baskets. She did not like having me cleaning everything today.
This is a bench by my back door. It is usually piled with items I have brought in from the car or things that need to be mailed or taken to the shed. In my cleaning today I cleaned it off and put things away and decided to give it a good polish. At least one entryway is clean and looking uncluttered.
I got these books, a pair of jeans, a queen size flannel sheet, 2 pillow cases, and 4 placemats for a grand total of $2.46 at my favorite thrift store on Saturday. The manager there is a sweet lady and always gives me a deal when I go up to pay for my finds. The horse book and the one below it are for my granddaughter Gabby.
This is a electric teapot I picked up at the flea market Sunday for $1.00 and it actually works! I also got 5 aprons for $1.00 each that I will be giving as Christmas gifts. A almost new pair of tennis shoes for $2.00 and a brand new pair of wrangler jeans for $2.00. I even got some nice big carrots, celery and green onions for $1.50 for all. It was a nice day.
