a life of gratitude (1062- 1083)

Times when God’s love completely overwhelms. Why am I surprised when He does actually what He says He will do? Why do I try to take control when letting Him have complete control is so much better?

We prayed about it. It is time to move – put feet to the ground and be His hands and feet. We prayed. Introduce the girls to international missions. But how we will ever come up with the money for five people to travel to another country. We prayed again.

He provided – our Jehovah Jireh. He isn’t finished yet. We continue to wait for Him to complete it. And we know He will. He overwhelms.

1067. some AMAZING items donated to the yard sale
1068. talking with a friend in Montana – knowing that if we go years without talking that we will be able to pick up like we spoke yesterday. Love her!!!
