Thankful for the Kindness of God
Yesterday I took my six younger ones to stay with some friends and play, while Hannah and I and her friend and friend's mom (also my friend) went clothes shopping at the thrift store. We had a wonderful time, visiting over lunch and looking for bargains. I ended up staying out later than I had planned, and was quite tired from being gone so much this week, and from being a single mom while the guys are in Arkansas. I hardly said a word on the way home, just ready for bed. When we got home and sluggishly unloaded everyone and everything, I checked email to see about future showings and such. What I saw was that somebody was putting together an offer on our home. Our older, lived in, but prettied-up home was going to bless another family! And the offer is really good. I know there are many days until we actually close, and we have to walk through all the stuff and paperwork, but I am so thankful for this most generous bid on our little place! Truly thankful for God answering back to those who have prayed for a quick sale. I have seen the hand of God this season, walking us through a lot of things. Covering us and leading us even as we have felt discouraged, exhausted, and unsure. Yesterday as my mind and body seemed to be like a balloon letting air out, I struggled to stay patient with my crew of kiddos. I was at the bottom of the barrel, having many demands from many darling people who weren't seeming so darling at the time. I read this blog post, written by our friend from church, and was relieved and encouraged. God is working, and we don't have to bring a whole lot to the table. What kind of God is this that we serve? He is better than we think. Hallelujah!! http://barnabasscrolls.blogspot.com/2013/05/who-am-i.html
