I prayed and I talked to my husband (no advice there, except "whatever you think") and I asked my facebook friends for prayer.
I had to make a quick decision as the sale was only good for one day so I took the chance and purchased 3500 crayon/pencil sharpeners and 2800 radios with batteries. I asked the seller to be sure the radios worked and he said he'd check.
Today the order was delivered and God answered prayer for them to be delivered after I got out of school on a gorgeous day. Pictured above are the two pallets waiting for me to unload and store them in the container.
I really like the crayon/pencil sharpeners--
Now, about those radios--
As I hauled all those boxes, I couldn't stop thinking that maybe I'd made a big mistake in this purchase. But, by God's grace, I determined not to worry about it. If it was a mistake, I'll learn from it and move on.
When I got home and tried new batteries in the radio it works perfectly with great sound. Not bad for 10 cents (well, closer to 14 cents when you add in shipping).
But how am I going to check 2800 radios to be sure they all work? Maybe I'll be looking for a good deal on AAA batteries.
On the other hand, God may have a purpose for these. I do know He is omniscient and He is in control--
and about that I know I am not mistaken.
