There are some minor renovations that are ongoing in my house right now. It all started when the refrigerator short-circuited which in turn burnt the unit. There was nothing really wrong with the electric wiring in the house. What went wrong was the cord was bitten by a mouse which in turn exposed the wire thereby causing it spark that eventually burn the unit. By the time I was aware of what was happening one wall of the kitchen was already on fire.

The fire was put out. The ref was a total wreck that I needed to buy a new one. Refrigerators are quite expensive and the choices are so varied it's hard to choose which one was best for the house. In times like this, it would have been a great help if I had some Savings Home Depot coupons. I would have saved a bunch if I had coupons for Home Depot. So I bought the refrigerator and it is now sitting mighty proud in its repainted corner.

The kitchen was looking so nice and fresh with its new paint and new refrigerator. I felt the urge to repaint the utility room too and then the basement. The minor repainting has not stopped for now I want to get some new odds and ends at Target. I wonder how many coupons at Target I need to get a major discount on a LCD TV.

Be a Blessing to Someone Today


"A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed"
(Proverbs 11:25, NIV).

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Do you need strength and encouragement to make it through a difficult time? Maybe you´ve been through a big disappointment or going through a situation right now that´s just not really fair. I challenge you today, don´t sit around feeling sorry for yourself or allow that circumstance to overwhelm you. One of the best things you can do is to go help somebody else in need.

The Bible tells us, "God turned the captivity of Job when he prayed for his friends." Isn´t it interesting, Job didn´t see breakthrough by sitting around feeling sorry for himself. He didn´t get healed when he prayed for himself. And we should pray for ourselves and present our requests to God, but if you really want to see things change, go out and be a blessing to someone else. Look for ways to refresh the people around you and watch how your own soul becomes refreshed in return. As you give, it will be given back to you, pressed down, shaken together and running over in every area of your life!


Father in heaven, thank You for Your Word which is life to my soul. Show me ways I can be a blessing to others, help me refresh those around me today. Thank You for refreshing me by Your Spirit. In Jesus´ Name. Amen.
