I’m just now able to sit and post. Sorry for the delay. It’s been a very busy day full of activity.
I’m blessed this week by many things. God has shown how awesome He is in so many amazing ways that I’m astounded by his works this week.
*I wasn’t sure how I was going to make ends meet this month. I knew I would have to not pay some bills because the money just wasn’t there to pay. My wonderful Sunday School teacher called me and told me (out of the blue) about a community outreach the church has to meet financial needs. He told he’d been thinking of me, and wanted me to call the director in charge of that ministry.
I didn’t feel like I was one of those families, that needed financial aid in times of trouble, but God humbled my heart and I made the call. I’m sitting in awe of how God has graciously provided for my family this month. I know He listens and provides, but it’s just amazing to see how big He is and how powerful He is. We’re able to make ends meet this month now, and I’m so thankful.
*The church called me again this week to ask me to come interview for a connections outreach position they’ve just had come open. The pastor in charge of this outreach, said more than one person told him about me. Keep in mind I wasn’t ‘actively’ looking for a full time job yet. I was going to start on Monday. Well — I had an awesome interview today and feel so peaceful about it. I wouldn’t be surprised if God opens this door for me, but he still has a few more interviews lined up. I will know something by Wednesday. The big blessing here is obvious – more money, benefits so I can cancel the policy I’m paying almost $300 for a month, and I can still take my son to school.
PRAY FOR ME THAT THIS WORKS OUT!!!
*I haven’t gone to the grocery store in a while, because we’re using every last bit of food and products we have – so that we don’t spend any money. I ran out of soap in the shower, which I thought was my last bar. I was positive it was as I remembered throwing away the plastic wrap, that held 4 dove soaps, when I pulled the last bar out. My first thought was, “crap how am I supposed to get clean today?” A little voice said, look under your sink. I found an extra bar of dove that I didn’t know I had. This was a HUGE blessing to me. Trust me I didn’t want to be stinky…no one wants to be around stinky people. LOL.
*My son, although pretty sick this week, bounced back fast. I’m so blessed that God answered my prayers to allow the stomach bug to pass through quickly. The last few times ended us up in the ER due to de-hydration. What a blessing to see a happy little face yesterday morning, with bright eyes, and to hear, “Mommy, I’m hungry.”
*My parents and sis are back from Hawaii so I’m not quite so isolated without them. I missed having them here so much.
*And currently both my nieces are in my living room playing with my son. I was blessed enough to be able to pick them up after school today. I love that so much.
*My wonderful aunt, who moved here from California, helped me out this week and watched my son when I had some errands to do. I’m blessed to have such a wonderful family. She’s a huge blessing to me.
