Winning $1 Million

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. (Romans 12:10, NIV)

Yesterday I received a phone call and on the other end of the line I heard the question, "So, do you have plans for dinner tonight?" At first, I was dumb-founded because I wasn't sure what the person on the other end of the line was talking about. So, this person went on and said, "Well, I want to offer you dinner tonight so that you don't have to worry about cooking." When I finally understood that I was being offered dinner, I rejoiced with much gladness and actually felt like I won $1 million.

DearFriend Tah-Dah, over at Beneath the Couch Cushions, called me yesterday to just check up on me, to see if I was doing ok, and to let me know that she was praying for us. I was very encouraged because I don't normally get a phone call where the person on the other end of the line calls specifically just to hear about how I'm doing. I must admit myself, being short on time with the girls, that I hardly call anyone either just to hear how they're doing. I usually like to quickly take care of business and get off the phone.

Therefore, just the mere fact that Mrs. Tah-Dah took a moment of her time to call and talk to me encouraged me highly and I was very uplifted by that alone. When she offered to provide dinner for us, I literally felt like I won the lottery. You see, Mrs. Tah-Dah, lives a good 1 1/2 to 2 hours from me, and yet despite the distance, she was still able to provide dinner through the internet; online pizza ordering. As a result of receiving dinner and not having to cook, I was able to get the house picked up and in order before 7:30pm. The girls were in bed by 7:30pm also and DearHubby and I were able to spend some time relaxing and enjoying time with each other, a rarity here lately.

What an extraordinary example of what being devoted to one another looks like and to honor another above one's self!

Thanks Trish for your loving care!
