God Is Good!

It started with a car and ended with a blessing. Our car had broken down right after Christmas due to timing belt issues. David and I discussed looking for another car, but when we puts things into perspective it would not have worked out. So, we decided to do the cheaper option and fix the car, but we did not have the money to do that. Luckily my mother generously lent us money to get the car fixed and we were able to get our car back. Time had passed and we and tried to travel with the car again, and again we were faced with a broken car a month later. This really discouraged David and I with our plans and our finances. We could not continue planning for the future without knowing where I finances stood. As of that moment, we were already in debt, had broken car, and many other things to worry about on top of that.
We immediately were put to our knees and prayed for a miracle of some sort. The next day, God answered our prayers and we received an anonymous donation to help us through. Right now we are in the midst of praying about what is the right thing to do with our blessing. Either we fix the car again or we get another car. We are so grateful for God's provision of over our lives. Praise God!

Valentines Day Is Coming

So it's that time again. Valentines day! You either love it or hate it.
This year I decided to do the 14 days of Valentine. I folded up little boxes and inserted tickets of "I owe yous" into them for my husband to use at his leisure. So far they are working wonderfully. He is enjoying it the tickets and is eager for the next ones to come. I get to show my love to my husband each day and not just on Valentine. I figure that it will be good thing to do outside of Valentines day in the future too.

Here is the link to making the box

Tickets of love

I've been back and forth on the day and now that I have someone it is definitely exciting to show how much you love them. I also started to realize that  it doesn't have to always be just because you have a significant other for you to participate. You can definitely show love to your friends, family, and acquaintances on this holiday. Not only your love but also the love of Christ. Christ loves us so much that he gave us the gift of his son taking our place and bearing the burden of our sin. To really know what love is and how to give it to others we need to take a look at Jesus' life and what he did for us. I pray that I can always show that love to my friends, family, and especially to the people around me.
