Well, I Guess I Believe It Now!

Ever notice those ads running in my right sidebar?  Well, I happened to notice one of the Kodak ads a couple of months ago...."Spending too much on ink?"  You know it!  So I clicked over to enter a contest they had going for a new printer.  I signed up, and then forgot all about it.

THEN...I got an email telling me that I'd been selected as a winner.  All I had to do was fill out some info and send it back to them.  I was thinking "If they want my checking account number or social security number, I'm outa here."  But they didn't, so I followed up.

THEN...I got an email looking for more info.  Seemed legit again, so I followed up again.

Luke asked me what was up, I said something like "I've supposedly won a printer or something, but I'll believe it when the thing shows up at the doorstep."  I don't win things...never really have...but that doesn't stop me from buying a lotto ticket from time to time ;-)

And THEN...look what showed up on my doorstep yesterday!

Well, I'll be.  I actually won something!!!  I won a Kodak ESP 5SE, to be precise. 

What a gift!  My printer was 8 years old and having a hard time interfacing with my new computer.  I was trying to figure out where to get the money for a new one, and then this thing was literally dropped at my front door!

So the moral of this story?  1.  God sometimes works in mysterious ways...but sometimes He has blessings dropped right on your front stoop  2.  I'm going to pay closer attention to the ads running over there!  3.  Real people like me actually win stuff from time to time   

PS.  I've been asking the Lord to help me to really know and accept His love for me.  Well, you never know....nothing says "I love you" quite like $100 million.  I'm going to go buy a lotto ticket now.  Just kidding.  Maybe ;-)

Awesome! I thought we weren't allowed to click on our own ads? I see so many that I want to hit...maybe I should try it! Congrats on your prize ;)

I'm sorry, I didn't mean for that to sound like a criticism at all! I truly am terrified of clicking on one and losing my hard earned $16.35, LOL.
Thanks for checking out my blog - I even included a link to yours in my post of some of my favorite things :)
God bless!
