provision

Sometimes I feel like God's provision is a little messy & something we shouldn't talk about because it's shameful or when people are involved, a little weird. But, I think God should get glory all the time when he takes care of us and so I'm going to use this little blog to do just that. I won't list names of the people who've helped us, though I'd really like to, because I don't want to embarrass them and because I know they are giving and generous not for praise, 
but for love. 

So, thank you Jesus and thank you so much to the peopl
who have been so giving and helped us through
 this time with a gift or a loan. 

This month our rent, our massive car repair bill, cell phone, and a few trips to the grocery store have been taken care of. Also, Nick has been working for a sweet friend who offered him work to help us through this time. And as of last night, two very crazy people paid for our internet and basic cable for a year. A whole year. Is that for real? Any of it? 

While my diligent husband works super hard to find a job that will provide for us, I'm so thankful for God's provision that really never lapses - not during a tough economy, not during a job transition, not during a move. He always shows up, always provides. Gift giving is the major way I show love for people and not being able to do it in medium-sized or big ways for a while is hard for me, but I can't wait to give back to these people. To call them & say we've paid for a plane ticket for them to come visit, or a fruit bouquet on their front door, or some groceries for them as well. I can't wait. 

Until then, thanks Jesus & thanks friends/family.
