Have you ever been thinking about and wanting something
and maybe only you and God knew about it?
Maybe you have been hoping for a certain doodad for your home,
or a relationship mended or I don't know, just anything?
And you have waited for the answer and out of nowhere, it shows up?
That very miracle, that very THING that you had hoped for?
It stops you in your tracks because it was so unexpected,
and you know it was meant JUST FOR YOU, and no one else?
Well, it happened to ME today.
I call it a hug from God.
I have had this paint swatch on my wall(s) for months
(tell me you do this too, please!):
This is in our dining room:
In our kitchen (on the iron thingy):
Just another shot of our kitchen above the French doors:
I know what you are thinking.
I think I do, anyway.
You are thinking, "The walls are yellow,
and she wants to paint them yellow again, so what's the big deal?"
Well, the paint swatch color is called Soft Pebble,
and is actually a khaki-ish yellow,
a more mature shade of yellow.
Hard to capture, it is!
So, I have an affection for Kilz Paint, yes, paint.
This paint gets used in all my staged homes.
But made by the same company as the primer:
We subscribe to Consumer Reports,
so we can get the best products for the best price
with the best ratings of items that have already been tested.
We do this with cars, tools, appliances.
Kilz Paint is one of CR's Best buys, see?

So, back to the hugging part.
I was wandering through Wal-Mart today, and thought,
"Maybe I should just by a quart of "Soft Pebble", to see if I really like it.
I priced the quarts at $12.00.
Hmmm... the gallons were only $10 more for 75% more paint...
Hmmmm...lemme check the oops! paint aisle.
Guess what is WAITING FOR ME, on the end,
in the front of all the other cans of oops! paint on the shelf???
Can you guess????
If not, here's a picture to help you:
Another of the front to help some more:
Yep. A can of oops! Soft Pebble, just for ME.
And the WHOLE gallon was $11.22!
God gave me a hug right there in the Wal-Mart.
Where have you been hugged by God?
The Lord looks down from heaven and sees all His children.
