  • My son has had some desperate financial needs which we prayed about on Wednesday evening at dinner.  On Thursday morning I found an envelope with his name on it in our letter box.  This amazing envelope had a note from someone saying the Lord had layed it on their heart to bless him.  The amount in the envelope was the EXACT amount he was in need of.  Our God is an AWESOME God and supplies our needs according to His glory.  Please continue to pray for him.

  1. Wow, how incredible that the exact amount your son needed was in your mailbox the next day! Praise God! Sounds like another great week and I completely agree, there are never too many books! Have a great weekend! Many blessings, Lisa :-)

    1. Lisa it was an amazing experience and I cried buckets I was so overwhelmed with His goodness. Blessings

  2. LOL - never too many books. I quite agree. :o)

    1. I agree Deborah. Although the latter part of the statement is becoming a problem

  3. What a great week! We love books! Thanks for sharing!
    Blessings, Dawn

  4. A busy week for you. The story of your son's need being met warms my heart and brings back great memories of various times the Lord has blessed us in a similar way.

    1. I love those kinds of memories too Ruby but I do find that I struggle to remember them when I'm in the thick of a situation

    2. Hello again Chareen, I am JCG from Face Book :-) where I use my real name. I thought Susan had posted that status on Aussie Homeschool. Come on over, you a welcome.

    3. Hello Ruby. That's so funny :) Sorry for the mix up ! I'll change to my name next time on the FB group. Blessings

  5. What a wonderful blessing that the money was provided for your son's need! God is good!

    Love the "too many books/not enough room" picture! So true!

    1. It was an amazing blessing to experience and one that my faith definately needed.
      We definately have issues with the latter part of the picture :)

  6. Chareen, Thanks so much for linking up with Its a Wrap and promoting it here. I hope you'll come back this week.
