Bad News

I have some bad news.

I do.

I have been putting off posting this for the simple fact that I don't want to make anyone reading this feel badly.

Okay - here it goes....

Jesus loves me the best. I am His favorite.

Ahhhhhhhhhh.....it is out. I feel so much better now. :)

I am sorry if I hurt any of you, but the truth must be spoken. Jesus loves me. He loves me the best. Do you know how I know this to be true? Let me just share 2 of the many, MANY proofs that Jesus loves DEBBIE the best... :)

Proof #1:
A few weeks ago, on my usual Thursday grocery day, I loaded the girls into the van, grabbed my bags and my Aldi quarter (:)) and off I went. After getting halfway to the store I realized that I had forgotten my coupon for the baby wipes that I needed. UGHHHHHHHHHHHH. Well, I was too far from home to turn around so I continued on - but I was frustrated with myself. After our Aldi stop we proceeded to Wal-Mart. For some reason that day I decided to get the baby wipes in the front of the store - at the health and beauty section - instead of in the baby section at the back of the store. As I walked out of the health and beauty area a man walked up to me. I had never seen this man before in my life. (and we live in a small-ish town, so you know almost everyone!)

"You have kids. I bet you can use these coupons!" He handed me a stack of coupons and walked away while I tried to get out a surprised 'thank you'.

I started to walk away and then I looked in my hand. The coupon on the top of the stack was for BABY WIPES!!!!!!!!!!

It might as well been on the speaker system at Wal-Mart, because I heard Jesus yell, "I LOVE YOU, DEBBIE!!!!!!!" and in my amazement I said, "I see you, Jesus. I love you, too!!"

Proof #2: (this one involves shopping again, but I assure you, I really do more than shop and eat. :))

The day before Easter I had to go to Wal-Mart because I had forgotten to get potatoes earlier in the week. We were having company on Monday and I HAD to have potatoes. I went to get them and WAL-MART WAS OUT OF POTATOES! How does that happen? Well, it happened. I was busy, a bit frazzled and now I was going to have to stop at another store for these potatoes that I SHOULD have bought on Thursday. I was getting ready check out with a purchase that my husband needed, and as I walked into the checkout lane I looked to my right. There, sitting on the water bottle display was ONE BAG OF POTATOES!!!!!!!!! Again, I heard, "I LOVE YOU, DEBBIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and again, I replied, "I see you Jesus, and I love you, too!"

So - there you have it. Two of many proofs that I am Jesus' favorite.

Jesus loves you so much. I pray you feel like His favorite, too!
