Scripture to Live By:
1 John 4:7-12
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
1 Cor 13:4-8a
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Fugal Find Post:
We sold our home several months ago and we are still sorting through some 35 years of accumulations.
The other day my husband came in carry a bag that had towels in it. He told me they were all new and still had the tags on them. To my surprise they were towels I had purchased after Valentines Day last year and that I didn't even remember that I had them. In the bag was six white hand towels and four red hand towels that have hearts of the same color woven in the fabric. I know I got a bargain on them or I would have never bought any of them. Usually the day after the holiday
you can get at least 50% off of items that are being sold for that holiday.
The second bag had three Kiss Pillows in it. Each pillow had the marked down price on it.
I had gotten 90% off each of the pillows. They had originally been $2.99 and I got each of them for ,29 cents each.
Their was also a Valentine bear in the bag and it was also marked down.
The original price was $1.99 and I got it for .19 cents.
I am always looking for bargain. I work with children and we give them prizes for certain achievements. From time to time they get to pick out a prize from the prize box. These will make a good prize for the this Valentine Day.
I can always use towels and I like having them on hand to give to friends with just a note of appreciation,what ever the occasion might be.
Keep your eyes open the day after Valentines Day or any holiday and see what you can find for the next year that would be a real frugal find. I know I will.
