Free, You Say?

i couldn't sleep last night. i just laid in bed thinking and thinking, pondering life - where i'm at in mine and how it has shaped who i am, and the forces behind it all.

then i had a thought... when you pray for patience, god doesn't give you patience. instead, he gives you opportunities to be patient. when you pray for humility, he gives you reasons to be humble...and so on. we always get the means to the end, rather than the end result.

so, i decided to cheat the system. i'm going to start praying for gratitude, that way he'll give me lots of things to be grateful for! free stuff! ;)

and in the spirit of getting free stuff, i found this quote the other day (LOVE it!) and decided to use it to put together my first printable and am giving it away to you for $100 free! come on, who doesn't like free stuff?

***also, please take a moment to visit maria at every day is a country song. she got some bad news this week. the pregnancy that we've all be so hopeful for is coming to an early end. she has suffered through several miscarriages, but remains so strong. however, even the strongest among us need support.
