Thank You God!!!

Do you know how much God loves you? Here is a story that just proves how He cares about what we think is pretty insignificant!~!~!

About 2 weeks ago, I was laying down in our bedroom on the floor, playing with KC. KC lives inside with us most of the time because he has some minor back issues. This is my boy KC:

Anyway, while I was playing with him, I smelled this musty dirty smell and I immediately said, "KC! What did you roll in? You need a bath!" I leaned down to smell the back of his neck and realized that the smell was not coming from KC, but rather our carpet!!!

Oh the dread!!! I vacuum often, spot clean as needed and even use carpet deodorizer on a regular basis since we do have inside animals, but I never imagined that our carpet could still smell so musty!!!

Fast forward a week:
While I was shopping at Walmart, I made my way over to the appliance area just so I could check out the carpet cleaners. I love my Bissell vacuum, so I knew what I wanted...and there is was; a Pro-heat Bissell carpet cleaner:

A friend of mine has one of these and swears by it..(and her house is ALWAYS cleaner than mine!!) Looking closer, I saw that the exact machine that I wanted had a price tag of $250.00. OUCH! I thought.. I could buy it. I had the money. I could charge it too...but something told me.. that little inside voice.. that sense of NO... Do you know what I am talking about? I just knew that I knew NOT to buy it. Honestly, I felt a bit disappointed too.. but I left the store without the carpet cleaner.

If you read my blog on a regular basis, you know that I love to go to a local auction house. Well - only 4 days later, this very auction had a special Tuesday auction because she had so many estates backed up for her usual Saturday nights. Tuesday auctions are usually not as fun as the Saturday night ones. Typically, Tuesday auctions are for house hold items.. rarely are there any antiques and fewer people show up for these auctions. BUT - with that said, the items she has on this night also typically go for a lot less than they would on Saturday nights too. ....and guess what she had in this auction??? snicker snicker... God is just soooo good!!! Yep - I am now the owner of a brand new Bissell Pro-heat carpet cleaner for .... are you ready????

$60.00 BUCKS!!!

Yep. Proof that God loves a clean heart :) lol!

Seriously, that is wonderful. I know sometimes I get that little voice too, and its nice to know that He has our best intersts at heart at all times...

Now, have you had a whiff of your carpet afterwards? Did it clean it well?

I am so excited to see your post. I have the same belief, borne from three specific retail experiences, in which, inexplicably, I found an item I had long wanted for pennies on the dollar. Each of those three times, I had a strong feeling that it was a gift from God. I've never heard anyone else explain it the same way. Thank you for sharing that story.

What a score! Only $60.00?! You were rewarded for listening to God's whisper.

We have no carpet in our house...only brick floors, hardwood and tile. I love not having carpet.
