For the weekend before Christmas we had some long time friends, summer camp staff (who got married) come and stay with us before flying back to Iowa for Christmas. Joe and Lisa are wonderful friends and we enjoy having them with us!
Some friends bought our whole family pizza (hey this is a huge blessing!)
One of our boys busted a pipe outside our home. Unfortunately Jason felt this was slightly outside his realm because of how it was broken.....so we called a plumber- who is a man of God and has done work for us before at very low prices. He decided that even though he came out on an evening on the weekend to charge us- Nothing! WHAT? YES!!
We got another unexpected monetary gift from a family member :).
We got a gift card at our Christmas party for volunteers at our church's children's ministry- for free ICE CREAM at Coldstone!
We just yesterday had a pastor give us tons of bread - for real too many loaves to count, along with bagels, and English muffins.
Pretty much a supply for a few months (in the freezer). And then another pastor and his wife who also love our kiddos took all but the "twins" to the movies to see Nemo in 3D!!!
In fact that is one lie satan tells us all the time. Maybe you shouldn't have adopted all these children I mean you aren't that good of a parent- look at all of your mistakes. Yep- we totally feel that all the time, and when we do- we have to pray! God remind me of who I am IN YOU!
HERE IS A LINK- you can see it for yourself at this link and if you don't want to watch the whole service- although I highly recommend it- watch from about 19 minutes on.....right before the lights fade the last time on Jason reading.....is the kiss :)
***HA- had people ask me if that was planned. My response- ummmm......she is 2- you can't plan anything with a 2 year old! ;)
