I have animals. LOTS of animals. And they can get expensive.
The other day, I was talking to God about how to pay for the things that they need … I was mostly just musing, not really stressing, but I did sort of say, "How are we going to do this, God?" (Because I feel like it was mostly His responsibility to provide in some way – you know – He "cares for the sparrows" and all that).
Anyway, that very day, I had an animal-helper-type-person suggest a trade: something I could do, for what they could do. No exchange of money; just swap skills. Like in the olden days.
Sometimes I have to think about things, but occasionally, it is so very clear: do it.
So I said YES!
Trades are pretty awesome – and more possible than you think. You just have to be open to them.
