Another Blond Moment

I opened the new box of garbage-bags to get one out and replace the full bag. As I unfolded it, I discovered to my big surprise they were only half the length of the ones we had. That's odd, I was so certain I had gotten the right kind and made sure it said 13 gallons on the box. No matter how I looked and even shook the new bag, it was only half size.

Me: "Oh no!"
Kc: "What is it?"
Me: " The garbage-bag! Look at this."
I held up the half-sized bag.
”Kc: " I have never seen such an odd size. Who would use such a size? Are you sure you got the right bags?"
Me: " Yes, I am very sure. Oh well, they will have to do for now."

Of course, in no time the bag was full and I pulled it out to be replaced. While I was tying a knot in it, I noticed a little piece of plastic sticking out on both sided at the top. Odd, what is that? Curious me pulls it and... the lower half of the garbage-bag revealed itself! It had clung together so well, I totally overlooked it. Both Kc and myself got a real good laugh out of it. It sure solved the mystery of the odd-shaped garbage-bags, haha.

Even when we know we are doing the best and right thing, it may seem like things are still not improving, or taking the turn they should. Patience is needed then. In His time God will reveal and all will fall in place! :-)

Romans 1:17
For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

Grandpaw,
It sure is!
Our lil' buddy sends a big hug back and I hope to get a pic of him soon with that cute grin, showing his 3 little teeth. But each time he sees the camera, he gets so interested in it, I can hardly get him to smile.

Keeping your Mom in our prayers!
May this day be a very blessed one.

Audrey,
Awww, that's so sweet of you to say! Thank you so much, but I couldn't do it without Him! :-)

As for the bag... that was prolly pure stupidity on my part, hahaha.

Have a very blessed day, Lieve Zus!

God's Grace.

or things aren't always what they appear to be?

Blogger Corry said...

Saija,
Nope, not by any means may they be as they appear! :-D
I guess mostly they are not what we want, but there is a world of difference between want and need. And God sees to all our needs!

Have a very blessed day!

God's Grace.
