Busy Weekend~

We had lovely and busy weekend even though I have been down for the count. I spent the whole day Friday resting in bed for Saturday~ Tom , Gabby and I have been volunteering at church with the special needs horse ministry. It has been such a blessing to us~ Tom spent the morning setting up and the afternoon helping in the kitchen! Which gave me quite the chuckle because he is not handy in the kitchen at all but they put him to work bagging bread and setting food up~ Gabby spent the morning in Signing class and then she helped in Art class...She has really been blessed in that this has lifted her spirits quite a bit and the Lord has blessed her by opening the door for her to have several riding lessons something which we could never afford at this point~ God is so good! And what a blessing to have lunch and bible study afterward...and we never leave there without their blessing us with food...enough even for our hungry teens for several days~ We have truly been blessed. God's provision for our family has been tremendous...He has been meeting all our needs~ I need to remember this as the days to Tom's leaving us for going out on the road nears. My prayer is that we are in His will every step of the way and that He would plant our family right where we need to be~ I had a lovely surprise yesterday when Chris and the kids brought us a wonderful dinner and the kids made me a beautiful and very large Valentine~ It was wonderful to see Emily and Eddie after not seeing them for a week...Haily and I get to spend time together every day as I take her to school and pick her up. Amanda spent the night as today is Presidents Day and I am still on the mend ~ She is watching the kids while Chris is in school..I am sure she will be quite tired when she gets home! Those munchkins are active....Just like Amanda, Austin and Gabby were~ Oh how I miss those days! But God is so kind in that I have been able to enjoy Eddie, Emily and Haily~


MATTHEW 6:31
THEREFORE DO NOT WORRY AND BE ANXIOUS, SAYING, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO TO HAVE TO EAT? OR, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO HAVE TO DRINK? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO WEAR? SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD ABOVE ALL ELSE, AND LIVE RIGHTEOUSLY, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED!

Dear Vicki, I spent some time reading back through your posts, and it sounded very familiar to me, as we have been through similar circumstances in the past. God is good and He does provide in marvelous ways. I can see that you believe that and that you praise HIm in your writings.
How Satan would love to trip us. I heard David Jeremiah speak on the radio tonight (he's a preacher) regarding Meshak, Shadrak and Ibednigo; not saved from the fire, saved in the the fire. And they came out without their clothes singed or smelling like smoke.
God bless you and your precious family and praise God for you faith, as it is such an encouragement to others like me.........
