God's Provision

So I wanted to share with you a blessing that our family received today. This isn't done in a bragging manner towards us OR the people who shared the blessing. The only thing I have to boast in is GOD and His love for me and my family. Thank you for allowing me to indulge in this moment.

Today our family was the recipient of a tremendous blessing. An envelope full of cash, gift cards and money orders. It seems that our need was made known to a local church and we were the anonymous recipient of God's blessing and provision through these people. The neatest part of all of this is that this church has been praying for us, not even knowing who we were, for the last month. All they knew were the details...father works, mom stays at home with three kids, financial strain, special need child, battling depression. To be frank I'm not exactly what all was shared and it doesn't matter because obviously it was EXACTLY what God wanted to be shared. I was blown AWAY!!! One of the pastors and his wife of this church came by today to present us with the gift and to pray for and encourage our family.

God is an amazing God. He is faithful and loving and His hand of provision is always timely. Thank you Lord for you love!!!

Keep praying, keep believing, keep sharing. People can't help you if you don't express your needs. I made a need known. I didn't know who was listening, but God did!!!

Have a blessed weekend!!!

The Long Awaited Day

Pics to follow...

In the meantime let me tell you about my day yesterday. My family had a glorious day celebrating life and simply just enjoying each other. ALL the Morgan children, grandchildren AND great grandchildren were together at the same time UNDER ONE ROOF!!!

Mom and Dad hosted at their house in Swannanoa. It was a beautiful time. Nannie and Papa were able to come over and Grandma Morgan and Frances came over too for a brief time!! It was simply amazing to watch everyone playing, laughing and talking. Leah (the newest family member)was the highlight of the day. Philip and Tammy's daughter is 5 1/2 weeks old. She is AMAZING!!! We have been waiting for this day for many years. Philip and Tammy have lost two children in their journey to parenthood and so yesterday watching my family hold this PERFECT child was an answer to prayer. God is so gracious!!!!

There were so many wonderful moments. Watching my children feed their baby cousin. Then Uncle Philip taught JoyAnn and Jesse the "touchdown" dance. Joseph watched trains with Tante Nathalie and Aunt Tammy. Seeing my mother's face as she held Leah. Watching my grandparents hold Leah knowing it might be the last time we are all together. I was blessed! I just wanted to share with you my incredible weekend!!!
