We've had so many financial bumps in the last few weeks....Our van bit the dust (our mechanic begged us to "please let this van die"), our other car started giving us some trouble (hasn't been a problem since a strange piece of metal fell off the bottom....hope we didn't need that!), a cracked tooth, and a digital camera that ended up in the Huzzah River were just the highlights from the last 2 weeks!
The thing with being totally bankrupt (metaphorically, okay? Don't worry, mom!) is that here is where God gets to show off....now is when He gets my undivided attention. Friday, we received a large refund check in the mail - - what we saw as a stressful adoption problem actually allowed us to get this money back to put towards a vehicle.....Yesterday at church we were given a new digital camera from amazingly ridiculous friends...and I'm confident that God will continue to provide for us in ways we can't predict. My 4th grade youth group has been memorizing this verse from Jeremiah 33: "Call out to me, and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." I love not knowing what God's gonna do next. Okay, sometimes I panic and get impatient...but I love being surprised by God!
