I was blessed by my new daughter in love this week.
She gifted me with these salt and pepper shakers that she made with her own two little hands!
They're my favorite color ... and are recycled from Carter's baby food jars.
I love them, and after my trip to Walmart today; I'm seeing them through new eyes.
After getting my groceries, the clerk had a horrible time scanning my items. When I used my debit card; the reader went haywire and after the third time putting my pin in, a manager came to help. Not being able to figure it out; they opened up a new line and took all my groceries back out of the bags and started rescanning them all over again. When the checker finished; I had to slide my card yet again and punch in my pin. Every time I typed in those numbers; I had this sinking thought; "Was this ordeal possibly draining my acct three..- now four times of $144.47? I remember asking the clerk if that was possible, back in the other line. She answered yes with her eyebrows and expression, no with her mouth and then shrugging said, "You might want to check your bank acct just to be certain." From that point on; the rest of our conversation was a .... hurried blurr on my part. Can't say I remember much after that.
--Realizing my attitude, walking back to my vehicle ... I felt conviction. When dollar signs started flashing before my eyes with that big fat minus sign in front of it; I forgot all about loving my neighbors- (the two employees who were ready to pull their own hair out trying to help me).... and instead my heart began loving our bank acct "more."
Forgive me God.
Thankfully the printout from the bank showed only one transaction.
My balance was good-
just like His grace.
...I know my heart... was overdrawn though.
I needed more salt.
