Just wanted to drop a note and say "hi". :-) We're housesitting for some friends in Holmes County this week and have to use their computer, since they don't have wireless internet. Plus we'll be busy with VBS and such so I won't have much time to post.
But the Lord is teaching me things, and He has been sending special answers to prayer. Being down here for the week is an answer to prayer in itself. We had wanted to help with VBS, but didn't think we'd be able to because of the long drive. Well, a month or so ago, the S. family said, quite out of the blue, "We're going to be out of town from [such and such date to such and such date; what day is it today anyway?] and you're welcome to stay at our house that week." We looked at each other. "That's the week of VBS, isn't it?"
So here we are, and praising the Lord for knowing our needs and supplying them.
Another special answer was a little more material, but still very, very exciting. I had been praying for a way to make a little extra money because there were so patterns I wanted very much to buy. Well, in the meantime, I posted pictures of my Romantic Era dress on the forum, and Mrs. Chancey liked it so much that she included it in her most recent e-newsletter. Then I got an email from her, saying that I got a gift certificate for Sense & Sensibility patterns, because she had featured me in the newsletter!! Isn't God good to fulfil even those small desires of our hearts? :-D
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. <3
