REDNESDAY


Well folks, we have St. Patrick's Day and Easter both in March, so I decided to combine the Rednesday pic to include them both!

I'll be frank with you guys this week - life sucks! Or a good part of it anyways - financial problems, Asperger kids problems, insurance problems, car problems, sometimes health problems - you know the drill. But, I'm not ready to bow out of the human race just yet. God will take care of me, "His eye is on the sparrow"!

That's why I look forward to the blog world. Bloggers inspire me so much! Whether it's in faith, emotions, crafts, home decorating, or just plain old humor. You guys are the best!!

Now, in keeping with that last word, humor, look what I found at the thrift store this week. The most adorable trio of Lefton angels! They are beat up but, boy, do they have personality!



The store had them priced at $8 each, which shocked me for the condition they're in. But when I questioned the dear Sister clerk about it, she lowered the price to $4 for all three - I'm glad I spoke up!

This first one is my favorite. What an expression of mischief! And with that slingshot behind her back - priceless! (Now, she reminds me of Angela from Free Spirit Haven. I wonder if she takes a slingshot to WalMart? LOL!)


Don't wake the dolly!


This one looks serious. I think she might be the "big sister", trying to keep the other two in line! Good luck to her!

I know life isn't easy but I like to dwell on the fact that God will not waste all of our experiences. The sorrow and the grief all works out for our betterment.

Sorry to hear that you're having a bad week. Hope that things will get better very soon. Maybe your spunky new "guardian angels" from the thrift store will bring you some good luck. :)

Hard times for sure but happy times, too! Thank God for mixing it up!

such cute little angels! I wish I was as brave as you and would "speak up" about prices. ♥

ThrifterSisters said...

Yay on your discount! It sure doesn't hurt to ask, does it? I collect Lefton angels but at $8 apiece, I would have had to have passed on these.

Happy Rednesday, Sue!

The Lord is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Psalm 16:8....

and it's kick a** safety boots girl that I bring to Walmart..lol....

I am fearless and confident and can face my foes triumphantly. Psalm 112:8

I keep reminding myself of the above scripture as I'm facing all the trials and stresses that come our way....keep on keeping on girl...your doing an awesome job!~

Kaye Swain - SandwichINK said...

Oh my, I can so relate! Both with the life frustrations AND the eyes fixed on God for our care and provision. Thank you for the encouragement and the cute Rednesday angels. And speaking of angels, have you heard the song by Chris Tomlin - Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies) - VERY encouraging and a wonderful reminder of the angels God surrounds us with. :) Have a blessed week!
