"Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,
and He will show you which path to take."
~~Proverbs 3:5-6~~
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. Jesus is Lord of my life and I strive daily to draw closer to Him. I love being a homemaker---taking care of my family and home. I enjoy couponing, cleaning, and cooking. I love to get the best deal on everything and find that yard sales and thrift stores are the perfect places for that. I have recently felt lead to write a Bible study and have been working on it in my spare time. I truly enjoy leading women's groups as we all seek to grow closer to the Lord. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy reading about what happens as I strive do all of this.

Yard Sale Fun

Yesterday, my mom, daughter, and I went to a yard sale that my church was having.  I went with the thought that I would not find anything and really did not need anything.  As usual, I was sucked in and found several things.  One was something I have wanted for a while, one was something I could not leave there, another was something I collect, and the rest was free.  
So here they are:
This is a large bowl and pitcher.  It has chips and other imperfections, but that is what made me like it.  It was well worth $2.
I have wanted to find one of this thermal coffee servers.  My husband swings shifts so we do not always drink our coffee at the same time.  I also will drink coffee all throughout the day.  This is a way to save it without it having to be reheated.  This was $3.
I collect Starbucks things with the old logo.  My daughter spotted this at the yard sale and it was only 25¢.  A great find at a great price!
As I was leaving the yard sale, I saw a friend that asked if I wanted some books.  These are all brand-new books that she had taken out of her Sunday school class.  I am excited to read each of them and use them to lead my small group.
