Let's just be real here. I'm struggling Choosing Joy today. When I started out on this #ChooseJoy Journey I did not take into the account that the second that you decide you want to get rid of a sin in your life and focus more on God it's like a red alert goes out to Satan and he is ON YOU.
I think Satan might go to Starbucks or at least have an espresso machine because he is alive and well and quite perky at all hours of the day, and night. Good thing I serve the God who CREATED Day and Night!
On to the week.
Last weekend I was at Payless getting some groceries and wandered down the ice cream aisle. As I was strolling by and looking into the ice boxes I noticed this paper hanging out of an ice cream treat box. So of course I had to stop and open the door to see what it was! It was a coupon for 1.25 off of the particular product. (No I did not buy it and use it!)
These coupons are printed off at the cash register and given to you when you check out. So whoever put this coupon there, received it at check out and then kept it and took it back to the store and put it where someone else could use it! I just thought that was SO COOL!
It's just another reminder that being a #JoyGiver365 does not require a huge effort or cost! This didn't cost them anything, but whoever was craving these (expensive) ice cream bars, got a huge treat and blessing!
I coupon, and always have extra coupons that I don't use, I am going to start placing coupons around the store on items each time I head to the grocery store!
I've mentioned on here before about how I like holding doors open for people, it's just a fun very small way to put a smile on someone's face. Yesterday I was at Jimmy John's buying some day old bread, and as I walked in, two office workers were heading out with their arms full of food. I purposely stood there and held the door open for them both to go through. They were so surprised and grateful! It might have only been 3 degrees outside but both of their smiles warmed me up!
This week I have been working on a way for my Piano Studio to get in on the #JoyGivers365 and next week I will share some details on what we will be doing!
