Pampered and Touched

Here I am: still on this theme of wants and needs. Does God give them to us? Sometimes - sometimes it seems not. Still struggling with asking and trusting and being honest with Him. So, listen to what He went and did for me!

David's out of town all weekend, so I've really been craving a spa treatment. Anything would do: manicure, facial, massage - just to feel pampered and touched. Yes, when David is around I get pampered and touched quite regularly :) And, I'll admit: I miss it!!!

Can't afford the spa. No $ right now. Bummer.

Last night I was making cards (my favorite way to enjoy life and avoid it all at the same time right now) and I thought about my friend Laura. Called her up and she was free to come over. When she walked in the door, she had a big mysterious CHAIR with her...

As the evening progressed and we kept chatting and chatting, she revealed that she's a certified relexologist and this chair was a special chair that she used during treatments. She also said that she believed God had told her to give me a foot massage. A PROFESSIONAL quality foot massage. MY FAVORITE!

No way.

Yes way. God had sent my very own private spa treatment in the comfort of my own home. He used my dear friend to deliver His pampering and touch in my life. Thank you, Laura. Thank you, Jesus!

Why do I ever doubt?????

And, another "serendipity" moment. Here was the Language of Letting Go (by Melodie Beattie) daily reading for March 7:
"Everything I need shall be provided today. Everything." Say it, until you believe it. Say it at the beginning of the day. Say it throughout the day.
Sometimes, it helps to know what we want and need. But, if we don't, we can trust that God does.
When we ask, trust, and believe that our needs will be met, our needs will be met. Sometimes God cares about the silliest little things, if we do.
Today I will affirm that my needs will be met. I will affirm that God cares and is the Source of my supply. Then I will let go and see that what I have risked to believe is the truth.
