Patti's Fender Bender: My friend Patti stopped at a garage sale and barely bumped a parked car with hers as she was leaving. Patti has a nice mustang; the other car is a piece of junk. It looks like it has been rolled 5 or 6 times. She is hoping they won't try to make her pay for old dents. She is worried. Would you pray about this? Patti did report the incident to the police and her insurance. Thanks!
Praises: We sell furniture using the internet (craigslist). We are retired, and it helps supplement our income. God has been blessing our socks off. A friend said "If you help me sell a full bed, I'll give you half." So we sold it in one day for $120 plus asked for a $20 delivery fee. That was a quick $60 for us and $60 for our friend. We kept the $20 delivery fee of course. The woman lived approx. 6 miles away so not too far but she lived on the 2nd floor of an apt. and it was very hard to wrangle it up there. We are in our 60s! Older than dirt! Or feel like it sometimes. I could not do much; too weak, bad knees. But the bed buyer helped my husband. Then, at 3 p.m. today (Sat.) we are selling a bed that is gently used but like new for $225. This price includes a frame and delivery to their home. They live about 11 miles from us. Okay here is the good news: we got the bed and frame FREE. A woman was moving and thanked us for taking it off her hands. Praise God. The free beds are like money in the bank. If clean and nice very sellable. Here in Oregon it is okay to sell "used" beds. Not sure how it is in other states. Then we just bought a beautiful bed for $50 that we listed right away for $250 for it's like brand new and super clean. I am pretty sure it will sell. The higher priced beds sometimes take a bit longer to sell. Don't sell in one day. But you just wait. Different clientelle.
Anyway, we have more stories but I already write too much! Just know that we are blessed. We had asked for God's favor and for help with finances. There must be some pretty powerful prayer warriors out there in WCIC land because WOW. Please pray now that our other 2 beds that have not sold yet will sell. The $ will help us pay bills. And sometimes I take a bit of the money we make and "reinvest" it. We dont always find FREE beds. Like the $50 bed we purchased today. It's like money in the bank. So if you are contemplating selling things through this internet sales channel but not sure about it, it is lucrative. Get pics; set the price fair; have a phone number or email; get ready to sell!!!! ~ A Pastor's Wife
