Desire of My Heart ~

"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart".
Psalms 37:4

Have you ever thought about this Bible verse....Really...Truly... thought about it? When we are walking with God day by day...He loves to give us the desires of our heart. Sometimes we may think it just coincidental if we just happen to find that perfect thing we have been looking for, but I think not. He loves us so much and how can He not be delighted when we are~

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Home Goods store. ( can you really be in love with a store?... I AM)
I was so excited to stop there on the way up to our daughter's house this last weekend as I haven't been there in a long time!
And the item I had pictured in my mind...the desire of my heart....THIS chalkboard. Tickled pink when I spied it underneath a pile of stuff on a clearance shelf .
It was on my list (well...my mental list) to look for a large chalkboard for our entry way that didn't cost a fortune because this girl doesn't have a fortune to spend. I was thrilled that it was only $15.00.
I hung it up today and I love it. It measures 20.5 inches x 24.5 inches and it is even the perfect color! I love the detail on the frame...thanking God for fulfilling yet another simple...tangible desire of my heart ~
My hubby thinks he is so funny...when he came in the door from work I said, "did you see the chalkboard" and he said "yes , did you see what I wrote"...he SAID he added the words, "Now that I am home"...but he really didn't. LOL Too cute!
Vintage style wine corks from Michaels. I can look all over the county for neat corks and then go to Michaels and find them! I got a few other small items, but didn't get pix taken of them. Oh and...the angel wings votive candleholder in the first photo...another Home Goods find for only 3.99. Have you found any goodies lately? I would love to hear about them ~ Blessings~

Do you know I've never been to a Home Goods? Love the frame of the chalk board but just looking at a chalk board gives me goosebumbs!!!

Your goody finds are quite lovely. That is a really good deal on that chalkboard, especially considering it is quite good sized. Very nice!

Enjoy your day!

Hi Sandi,
I am with you... I think it is not coincidental when things such as those happen! I love your chalkboard too and I so wish there was a Home Goods somewhere close to us. Maybe one day soon. Your message on the board says it all - You are blessed, as am I too.
Happy night!

I really do believe that God delights in giving us good things. So glad that you have another item to cross of your list. You are so precious.
We have a similar store in Canada. Ours is called HomeSense. I go every chance I get.
