God is good!

Ok I could not be more relieved right now! I sold my old camera on ebay. I made an exception and let a person from Canada purchase it – I usually don’t ship to Canada on ebay because it takes so long to get there. Well…..it never showed up! I mean like I mailed it Jan 16th – priority international with insurance. And it got there TODAY! I’ve been praying so hard the past two days that it would just show up here or with the buyer. I had put together all the info to file with the post office – but it turns out they gave me the wrong insurance form so it wasn’t track-able! Arg! And I found the insurance slip, but not my receipt. So it was going to be a huge headache.

I had resigned myself to just eating the cost and refunding the buyer their $200. Totally would have sucked! But it came today! I wanna do a happy dance now! Seriously, I am so happy that it got there! Saved me a major headache….and the stress of trying to come up with the refund. Anyway, woohoo! That’s all. Totally a small thing, but I’m so happy!

    Whoo-hoo!!! Doing the happy dance with you!!!

  • Hey, Em, I know EXACTLY what you mean. I have an ebay store and have been selling for years and there’s no worse feeling in the world than knowing you’re item is gone, AND you have to refund the buyer’s $$$$.

    I’ll never forget: I had sold at auction an altered book .. lots of work and time spent and it fetched a great price. Unfortunately, days turned into weeks and still the winning buyer didn’t receive it. The very day I was set to refund her money, it arrived! Only took a month, but it got there.

    So, yeah, I know what you’re feeling and I’m so glad that you got a happy ending!

    Oh Emily – I soooo understand since my package to you took more than a week as well. CRAZY and I too am very glad that it arrived.

    So happy for you that it arrived—I KNOW that sick feeling! On another note—I flew to Bangkok alone 2 summers ago—I had been overseas, but never alone….so I totally understand how intimidating this seems on this side of the trip. You will find, however, that English is EVERYWHERE and it makes it much easier to get around everywhere. I know you will have an amazing time with Kimberly while getting to experience another culture! What a TREAT for you both to be together again! Blessings~

  • Glad it arrived okay! I live in Canada and things get stuck at the border FOREVER! It really stops me from ordering online a LOT….you must have patience if you live here and want something from the US…lol
    My stamp orders from SU! take 10 days and other companies usually two to three weeks.

    I think God just smiles when He blesses us and we get way excited about it!!!

  • I am so happy for you…I would have hated that feeling, especially loosing out the cash..when you know you mailed it. I have sold so many things on eBay and fortunately have not had issues with lost stuff. Once I sold a print that ended up being bent…and I shelled out the money to have it professionally wrapped..UGH!!

    Not a small thing at all! I am soooooo happy it got to the buyer! WooHoo is right!

    Hi Emily– Did you get my email re: the card calender file?? Don’t mean to nag- but was just worried maybe it got sent to spam or something? Anyway, I’d like to purchase it– can pay with paypal. Thanks– and your trip sounds awesome!

    Emily, Beth Moore claps and claps when God does a God thing! I hope you give Him a Big Hand! Have a wonderful trip!

    We must remember that the small and big blessings are from God’s heart to ours. I am so happy with/for you, Emily.

    God is Good….All the time,

  • Oh wow…that’s not a small thing at all! So glad it finally came through! I would have been stressed to the max!! Congratulations on officially becoming a DSLR user, now that you’ve sold your old camera…there is NO going back!! LOL!
