I was walking through a local store the other day. {Okay, make that a few weeks ago, but it just popped back into my brain.} I was randomly meandering around the store when I discovered something that threw me and just HAD to share the oddity of it.

A closer shot.......

Okay, I know that I'm a lot bit out of the loop since we've now lived in Europe for 8 years, but really?!?! Since when do we need a "Console French Fry Holder"? Ummmmm don't most American vehicles already have a cup holder? And last time we were actually in America, fries fit into said cup holders.  Apparently I'm not the only one that thinks has been marked down. Although, there were only a handful left....unless they only sent a box and only a few fit in a box. Hmmmmm Okay...head hurts from contemplating all of the possibilities.

And what's your opinion on fry holders? Do you have one? Or think they're a useless piece of hard plastic?

God is So Loving

I did quite a few things yesterday...a LOT of running around. It wasn't that hot, boy it was humid. I got waaaay to hot from the high humidity. I sprayed my pony tail with cool water, rubbed the back of my neck with cool water, and rinsed my face off thoroughly with cool water (all wonderful remedies for excess heat). I finished my day with a Bible study at Home Group at our pastor's house. Busy, but no more than a normal "errand day."

Then today. Woke up with my left foot swollen and the top part red (it still is). It hurt off and on (not too bad until the evening). I was mentally complaining...."really?!?! Why me..Again! It's not fair. *pout" Okay...more whining I guess. The gracious God in Heaven I serve didn't "zap" me or slap me on the back of the head (both I deserve). Nope. He listened.
He reminded me of a previous lesson (give thanks in all things).
He urged me and have me the strength to do dishes (one of my nightly goals I'm trying to turn into a habit).
And the most humbling? This was my devotion that I normally read in the morning, but hadn't until a few minutes ago.

God is so amazing and so loving. Even in my whining He loves me.
