In June I wrote about how I was feeling like a 1950s housewife - cloth diapers and potty training with no dryer, dangling on the clothes line. One car broken, leaving Herb and I to share the good car, usually meaning I stayed home all day or walked to wherever I needed to go. Windows thrown open, avoiding the installation of air conditioning units (which was changed two weeks later).
In the last 2 months, both of these things have been remedied...for free.
Hence the title, Blessed.
We were given a car (a 1995 Toyota with 220,000 miles on it, hehe, but it goes from A to B!) AND a clothes dryer.
The point of this is
a. to follow up and make sure you don't think I'm some kind of martyr
b. to publically thank Denise, Cali, and Candy for literally making my life so much simpler and blessing Herb and I in ways they probably don't even know
c. to remind myself again that God provides and give Him credit where it is due. It didn't happen right away, but just when we needed it most. The car and dryer are both older models - but they WORK perfectly and meet our needs exactly.
He is good, He is sovereign, and He cares about the minor stuff, too.
Therefore, do now worry about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with Thanksgiving, present your requests to God, and the peace the transcends all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
