Blessings

by adustyframe ~ December 23rd, 2006

This week I am feeling so blessed. Even pampered and dare I say it? Spoiled!

The post office is delivering package after package.

Some from my family, some from my friends.

One arrived for my son. My sister sent him something for him to give to me.

He disappeared in his room with wrapping paper and came out with a sweetly wrapped box. I almost don’t want to open it. His efforts to perfectly wrap my present are so dear.

Even though there was the lovely car stress, God proved himself faithful and provided everything needed to fix it at a very low cost. Even the cost was taken care of.

Today, Angel Tree dropped of my son’s gifts from Daddy. They are tucked under the tree waiting for Christmas morning.

My son’s eyes lit up and he smiled a precious smile when he found out they were from Daddy.

This afternoon, I was in the kitchen reading the mail. I saw my husband’s childhood friend walking up the sidewalk carrying a gift.

He stopped to check on us and brought a gift for my son and a gift card for me.

I was floored. He is a single guy and this gesture was so incredibly thoughtful.

Tonight my son and I spent the evening with my friend and her little ones. We exchanged gifts and ate party foods.

I am so blessed and thankful for God’s goodness to us.

Dear Lord,

Thank you for seeing us and sending others to reach out to us.

Thank you for providing for us when it seemed there was no way to pay the bills.

Please bless those who reach out to us. Fill their hearts with your love and let them know how very grateful we are that they obeyed your promptings to bless us.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
