My Life Being Renewed: A Ray of Hope....

A Ray of Hope....

November 27, 2012

Vest- Belongs to my FIL

Bracelet- vintage

Shirt- Hubby's Hollister, Flats- thrifted

These photos were taken at my MIL Home Thanksgiving Week- honestly, I just threw this on to walk the dog because Turkey juice was accidentally spilled on my blouse & jeans.

On Another Note, This Thanksgiving week has been a little tough on us, because no one has called back with job offers yet {most likely because of the Holidays} and I'm not going to lie, even with my faith in God, it's difficult when you are getting low on $$ and wondering what is going to happen next. My point is, I prayed for just a small ray of HOPE from God, just something to hold onto & to give us some hope. And I believe he are some things that happened this week that were blessings..

I won a $25 American Express Gift Card through FB
The hubby & I won $25 JcPenny Gift Certificate
The hubby & I won a second JcPenny Gift Certificate for $20
Hubby found a $6 Crockpot that is the perfect size for us!
Hubby went on an Interview for a Nursery Manager last Saturday
Two jobs opened up at the Hospital & I applied for them
Someone might be interested in buying our Suburban {praying!}
Our online House views are increasing, despite the Holidays
We received the $50 credit for Amex Small Business Saturday
My MIL sent us home with lots of groceries, so I won't have to spend $$ on groceries for a little while
We found 6 boxes of Kcups for cheap prices
I also opened my new Etsy Shop! Be sure to check it out in a day or two- I have a gorgeous vintage coat, Italian Scarf & vintage sunglasses, plus more that I will be putting in my shop!

What is so amazing is the fact that we had money to spend at JcPenny's for Christmas- we went yesterday and bought a gift for one another and we still have $25 left to spend for at least 2 more gifts! I honestly didn't think we were even going to have a Christmas and I had come to terms with it already. I don't care what anyone says, God does care about what may seem like small things to us/others- it matters to him about his Children..GOD is so good!

Hope you are all having a fabulous week as well!!
