I Serve An AMAZING God!!!

I sit here writing in tears...you see, money has been extremely tight. If you read below, I was going to get Belle a Twinn doll for her birthday. That was until I found out I will only be working 12 hours this week and my husband gets no Christmas bonus...nor do I.

I called my husband this evening and he knew something was wrong. I told him I was so stressed out...I wasn't sure how we would finish our Christmas shopping and I didn't know how we could afford extras, which includes a tree. He told me not to worry. He would come home and we would discuss what we could sell. Everything would be alright.

I know he's right. God promises to take care of his children (I know Christmas isn't a necessity...) and we would be fine. I also know God promises to give back in abundance to those who tithe (which we can't afford, but we can't not afford...know what I mean?) So we give to our church as commanded.

Well, God has shown up in a big way. Along comes an angel. My friend Jessica's MIL had a nine foot, pre-lit Christmas tree she was giving away. Jess called to see if I wanted it. You bet!

Well, when Linda came over to drop it off, she also dropped off a TON of food and she just happened to have diapers in the sizes I need. I literally only had 2 of Raef's diapers left and 4 of Marcus'. She didn't know my situation, she just had them left over...how great is our God!

Mrs. B.,
So happy to hear that Christmas will be working out this year for you all. I know money is a huge stress - wish is wasn't! I lost my job two months ago, so I understand that stress for sure.

I read your comment on Amy Beth's blog, ministrysofabulous, this is Roomie by the way, and I was really hurt. I know you don't know me, therefore you have no way of knowing what is really true, but her blog posts are frequently embellished, this one is no different. I just wanted to try to set the record straight. I hate to be painted as selfish and mean - no one has ever referred to me in that manner. But please don't think that of me. It really hurts.
Your blog is rather cute FYI.
