Ice Cream Maker Love

For awhile now I've been wanting an ice cream maker. This, of course, isn't a necessity for our life, and our budget laughed at my desire to purchase one (not to mention our waistbands don't need a steady diet of ice cream). So I put it on my to-want list for my birthday or Christmas.

A couple weeks ago my friend Elora and her husband were over for supper. She mentioned she was selling an ice cream maker on Craigslist and then she asked, "Do you want it? I know you said awhile back you wanted to get an ice cream maker sometime. I don't think I'm going to get what I want out of it anyway, so I'd rather give it to someone who I know will use it."

Last Saturday, I became the owner of a counter-top, stainless steel Cuisinart ice cream maker (it matches my rice cooker, toaster, and my coffeemaker!). I haven't used it yet, but I look forward to that first batch of homemade ice cream!

My mom likes to say that this is the way that God loves us. In little ways He reminds us that He's there and He cares. For this week, He showed me love through an ice cream maker.

I'm SO happy for you!!! I just sold our handcrank one on ebay and so now have money to buy a cuisinart just like you have. So, can you tell me what you think of it after you use it a bit? I want to make sure I buy the right one.

What a wonderful thought! It is amazing the little ways God demonstrates His great love!

Heather, I'll definitely let you know what I think after I use it. I will say, that my friend loved it! The only reason she was parting with it was because someone gave them a Kitchenaid mixer and an ice cream maker attachment came with. She felt like she didn't need to keep both. In truth, she was a little sad to pass it along. :)
