God Provides Even in Little Ways


Bless us, O Lord,
and these, Thy gifts,
which we are about
to receive from Thy bounty. Through Christ, Our Lord. Amen


God provides every single time. I see it in big ways and I see it in little ways. It is as if God is reminding us to cast every care (even the smallest ones) upon Him.

Case in point, I stock up on certain foods for my pantry because I know we will use them and I do my best to buy them on sale. When I am running low and are either out of something or almost out of something, what I need goes on sale at a great price.

My husband and I no longer drink soda (diet or regular). Instead we drink OceanSpray Cranberry Juice Light (50% less sugar ~ not the diet one). We mix it one part juice to three parts ice water. This juice can be expensive (normally $3.98 ea). I really don't want to pay that much. It never fails ~ when I am down to almost my last bottle, my store has a great sale. Buy one get one free! This week my store had this sale and I stocked up juice. I make sure the expiration dates are at least four to five months away.

My store also had a great sale on BBQ sauce and Hidden Valley Farm Ranch Dressing. The BBQ sauce was buy two and get three free! With my coupons and the sale, I only spent 65 cents a bottle (16 oz ea and with an expiration date late 2018). The dressings were also on sale and with my coupons I paid 80 cents a bottle (16 oz ea and with an expiration date of early 2018).

I get so excited and am so thankful to be able to save money as I grocery shop. I want to be wise with our money and be able to give more to others as well. ♥

  2. Wow you certainly do find great sales, it seems everything we eat is never on sale :( I agree that God always provides in His time!

    1. Connie, we eat a lot of produce and meat (which are seldom on sale) but the condiments or dressings I wait for until they are a bargain. :-)
