A nice surprise

by adustyframe ~ May 17th, 2007

I’ve mentioned before my Titus 2 woman.

She attends church with us and has been a wonderful encouragement to my husband and myself.

She has given me gas money, money for a haircut, &  invited us over for dinner.

She emails me often about something I post on the blog. She prays for me and Lee and James.

She and her husband write to Lee and now that he’s moved close to us, they visit him if I can’t go see him.

Last week, she brought me a huge vase of lilacs. That was wonderful! Mine weren’t open yet.

Today she emailed me about my post about Lee being discouraged. She went online and found some Scripture at Charles Stanley’s website. She printed it off and has already mailed it to Lee.

James and I slept in today. He’s still recuperating and I am still suffering from these allergies. I had taken a shower, and checked my things online. I was almost ready to get going on the day when there was a knock on the door.

Thankfully it was her! We were still in our jammies! She brought me something I needed and asked if she could take James and I out for breakfast.

We hustled around to get dressed and she folded my laundry! We went out to eat and spent a pleasant morning encouraging one another in the Lord.

She encourages me so much and I’m thankful that she’s willing to speak the truth to me even though sometimes it’s not an easy thing to say.

Today she pointed out an area where I was not trusting God. She even said, “That was hard to say to you.”

I agreed with her though that I was not trusting the Lord in that area and that I was thankful she loves me enough to tell me the truth.

Having someone that is constantly looking for ways to encourage me is a tremendous blessing!

Thank you Lord for my Titus 2 woman! She is a wonderful blessing to all 3 of us!
