The Amazing Timing of God...

Today, Jody became a licensed contractor. This has been a dream of his for a long time. He enjoys working with his hands and is really good at it.

Since we have been back from Africa, Jody has singlehandedly supported us doing handyman work (something he had done on the side for quite awhile). All the while looking for a job at the same time, because he is very limited in what he can do as a handy man without a license.

He had several interview, and even had a very promising job that fell through. So he began to study for his contractors test and we began to save so he could get his license.

Then, out of the blue, he gets a job. God held off, and saved this job just for him. His boss has encouraged him to get his license, and promised to make him a sub contractor once he did.

So, today Jody is a business owner, licensed contractor, and has a client with enough work to support our family.

I sit back in awe looking at how God perfectly orchestrated the timing of events to bring this all to pass, and at how He made provision for us every step of the way. He is a good God, a good Father, who gives good gifts to His children.

My Girl

My daughter turned 6 this past week. I can't believe it. She is getting so big, and growing into a beautiful, sweet, smart, young lady. She and I are more alike than we are diffrent, so raising her has been a challenge. But a challenge I would do 1000 times over. I love her more than words can say and am so very proud of her.
I know that she is going to do great things for the Kingdom. When we were in Africa, she told me God wants her to be "like the girls on tv that Nana likes" (aka Joyce Meyer and the like), and teach people about Jesus and the Bible.
I am so blessed and honored that God has entrusted her and her brother to us, and pray each day for the grace and wisdom to raise them in the fear and knowledge of Him.

Happy Birthday, baby girl!
