today, I see God in joint compound

God is BIG. we are little. Again and again, this truth is driven through my thick skull. My very thick skull.

This week, God provided 5 full and 2 partial 5-gallon pails of joint compound for us for free. Someone at church has just finished a basement remodel and their contractor made a "mistake" in his estimation of how much they would need. This guy from church asked if we thought we could use it.

Can we use it. We have an entire house to drywall! Praise God for contractors' errors, and church family generosity. We are blessed indeed.

I too put God in a box too many times to count. You'd think I'd get it by now! I'm thankful for His patience in daily reminders like "compound" or whatever to let us know He's in control and will provide our every Need.

Praise the Lord! It never ceases to amaze me to see how God provides for our needs before we have even voiced or realized them! Praise the Lord for His provision! Thanks for sharing; that is always encouraging to hear!

Praise God, I'm excited to see how God provides for his children in so many different ways. It was great to see you at Grace a couple months ago (I think that's when you were up here -- My brain has a horrible timetable).

Congratulations on your soon to arrive child!
