We have sickness going on around here. Rumbling tummies, hugging the potty, lots of washing going on. And it seems our washer decided she had had enough. One to many blankets and pillow cases. We looked yesterday for a new washer, boy the decisions and choices. Too many for one visit. So we came home. D posted on some board online about wanting a Consumers Report article about washers, and a friend offered their used washer for FREE. We were not anticipating buying such a large object now and I was really stressed about it. But our GOD is GREAT and KIND, and LOVING, and GRACIOUS, and just WONDERFUL. He offered us through a friend what we needed.
I had great plans for this week, which have not been brought to fruition. I am working through great disappointment and feelings of inadequacy, feelings that my kids are going to be so disappointed on Christmas morning, feelings that this Christmas has not been focused on the Lord as I have wanted. Feelings that living with....well living is stressful. I had not been reading my advents readings, or any Bible for a couple of days and I was feeling it. So I got out the dusty book, pulled up the reading list and began going through the days readings. God is AMAZING, He's a GENIUS. He knows what we need, how we need it, and how to bring all things to completion. If you are feeling stressed, overwhelmed. depressed, get out God's Word, and begin reading about who He is, what He has done, and how much He loved us. It is sure to put some things in perspective. Praise Him for these things, and go on about your day.
thanks for reading,
