I'm still alive

Its been a week sense I have posted anything, sorry about that. We are still hanging on and still waiting. Ethan's birthday was fun, thanks to a lovely lady that anonymously stopped by my home the day before his birthday and dropped off a walmart card for us to specifically use for Ethan and any extras we needed. Isn't that beautiful! Thank You So Much!!

I have to tell you its been a very special time and a time of heartache these past few weeks. Folks that I don't even know have pitched in to help pay this bill or buy some groceries. My sister in law whom we really never spoke with a whole lot until these past few months, has come over the past two weekends (she lives an hour away) and takes me to buy milk and bread and cheese. What a blessing! My dear friends father whom I had never met, showed up at my door with the money to pay my utilities bill last month. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about the love and support that has been given to us. So whats the sad part you ask? Well, lets just say that in times of trouble you know very quickly who has your back and for us its not who we thought. So I want to thank all of you who have helped us and prayed for us, you are greatly appreciated and loved! We are still not out of the woods but we serve a Glorious King and I trust Him!

We had the same thing happen to us, Audrey. When we didn't make enough to pay rent (for an entire year!), we were amazed at who God used to help us - not the people we expected. And, the people we thought would help, really didn't. I remember sitting in our (rich) church, and asking God why these people weren't helping us. He answered me loud and clear: They don't provide for you, I do. I had to trust Him to provide in His way, and not hold a grudge against those who didn't help us. I sure am more sensitive now to the needs of those around us! We can't financially help people yet, but we can pray and support them!

What goes around comes around. :) We are helping out a family and they constantly ask how can they repay us. Our response is to help other when you can. It may not be now, tomorrow or next month. But if you are able.. help someone else. It's such a good feeling to help. My prayers continue for yall!

Isn't that AWESOME! We had some close friends of ours (they live in Texas, we live in Louisiana, so the closeness is of heart) GIVE US.. (not LOAN) us money to pay our house note and car note... even though we hadn't shared with them our financial position. We needed it SO bad.. and I'm just so thankful that they were praying for us and allowed themselves to be moved by God! (And give without expecting return)

Hi,
Thanks for leavinng a comment on my blog. I didn' realize it but I have been keeping up with your family through the RSS feeds. :)
I know the MOMYS group is so big but it does feel so small and close when we reach out to each other. Thanks again,

Cute boy.

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
