witnessing greatness- part II; free movies, kindle stuff
Wednesday, 4/28, is Baskin Robbins 31 Cent scoop day. Don't forget that most Dunkin Donuts have a BR...so go get yourself some cheap ice cream!! I plan to treat the whole family...a rare occasion!!
Walgreens alert: There is a deal this week on Hallmark cards that just got a whole lot better. $5 RR wyb (8) or $2 RR wyb (4) Hallmark Cards. The 49¢ “Kid’s” Cards are participating. Buy (8) for $3.92 and get $5 back! You make $1.08. Great chance to stock up on kid's b'day cards!! There are lots of ( 9, I think) FAR items this week. Check out http://www.southernsavers.com/ to see them all!
Here's an unadvertised deal at CVS: CVS brand sunscreen is buy 2, get $5 in ECB. If you get the 2 oz size, you will get them both for free!!
You can check by state if you have a Cinemark theater near you. They are going to have their "Summer Movie Clubhouse" again, where admission is $1 per show for kids. Or purchase in advance and get 10 shows for $5. All shows are rated G or PG. Click on the link for the theater near you to see the rundown of movie dates and the times. For example: Ice Age 3, Alvin The Squeakquel, Night at the Museum, Tooth Fairy, Tale of Despereaux, Aliens in the Attic, Planet 51, Veggie Tales, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Curious George. There is not a theater in the Triad, but one summer we were at Myrtle Beach during this time and took the kids to two free ( they were free that summer) movies. Sweet deal!
Did you know that even if you don't have a Kindle (Amazon's electronic book system), that you can download the app for free on your iphone or i touch? Click here to do so: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&ref_=amb_link_85648511_3&docId=1000301301
Then you can download lots of free Kindle books and read away! I bought my son a Kindle for his birthday and I am all the time downloading freebies on to it while he's at school. So when he gets home, I hear, " "Aww, Mom...another 'How Joanie Cleans Her Bathroom in 10 Seconds??' This is embarassing!!" Ha...I usually delete them after I look through them;) I do love his Kindle, but not enough to buy one myself!! Most of the classics are free (including ALL Jane Austens!) and new releases are almost always $9.99.
Got several emails about my "greatness" post...which was super. One friend found it interesting that I would mention Tiger...and therein lies his "schtick, " so to speak. Tiger is a great golfer, probably the greatest of all time. Morally, he's a mess...Mickelson has him on that. But my point is, God gifts us all differently. Watching Tiger make a shot that looks impossible is a thing of beauty...regardless of the fact that he's out sleeping around. So the question is, can our talents bring glory to God even when we have sin in out lives--because, let's face it, we might like to rag on Tiger, but there ain't one of us who's perfect. I think the answer is "yes." I think that anything well done causes people to stop and say "Whoa, amazing!" And that in turn, points us to a creator who makes us thus....OK, enough on that for today:). I do love this subject: finding your "sweet spot" and doing it with passion...
