No. I'm not blogging about Kanye West again. I'm just making the subject line clear so those of you less enthralled with the topic can skip ahead to the next page.
Things have been difficult for awhile now, with Tim's company changing hands, my illness and the like. We have a great many blessings, but we've had an awful lot of trials over the last five or six weeks. Money has been tight, and our patience has grown really thin.
I know many people would attribute the recent good events to chance or fate. But the God I love deserves all the credit, and I'll gladly praise Him. On Wednesday the company's sale was official. On Thursday we got an unexpected refund from an old airline ticket. Today I got paid by a company for whom I understood the work to be wholly voluntary.
Life is like this for everyone, and God shows His love to all of us equally. I liken these types of things to the little cheery notes mothers sometimes put in your school lunch. You're already well-provided for, but the little bit of extra Grace is the most tangible flavour of love.
