February 22---My Mystery Bill
When I left Nashville in December I took with me my dad's copy of "The Shack" and have recently begun reading it.
It wasn't until yesterday that I was flipping through the back pages [looking for my bookmark] and quickly noticed something green & unexpected.
I quickly flipped back to the end of the book anxious to see if my eyes had deceived me or if there really was, in fact, a bill of some sort hiding from me.
Within seconds I found the page I was looking for and sitting there, staring me in the face was a gloriously unexpected $10 bill.
When I looked closer I saw the words, "enjoy this journey" written on it. Without giving it much thought, I put it in my wallet as my friend Katie was waiting for me to come back to earth and join back in our conversation.
It wasn't until today that I thought back to the mystery $10 bill, & when I went to my wallet to further examine the evidence, I realized I had used it to buy my lamp yesterday.
Expecting that this note was placed in this book by either Hunter or my Dad, I wasn't too unhappy about the fact that I spent this money (especially since I have a freakin' awesome lamp to show for it).
But, when I texted my Dad & Hunter, neither of them had any idea where the money had come from (like they would actually leave me a note on a $10 bill anyways) so the only explanation I have until I get to the bottom of this, is that God left it for me; which if you have read this book, is ironic (and mostly to blame for me coming to this conclusion).
P.S. this photo was recreated using a $1 bill since I so obviously didn't have the original when I took this photo today.
