We are so blessed to live here in the USA, even with all that is going on in the economy and the decisions of the governing bodies that we may not agree with.
This weekend, Michael and I constructed a makeshift play fort for Aaron out of some old doors that previously were a part of our garage storage area. It is definitely not anything spiffy, just an A-frame type lean-to. It's a little over 6 feet long and about 8 feet wide at the floor. He will have fun playing in it, I'm sure.
I was sitting inside, helping Michael with the construction, and I was struck with the facts - someone in the world would be so grateful for this structure as a main living quarters. For the whole family. And I was overcome with thankfulness to God for the house we have. I needed the reminder - I've been a little impatient with the slowness of our indoor renovations. I'm so thankful that God has provided for our housing needs in amazing ways. We have a great house for a fraction of what it would cost to rent a small apartment. Praise the Lord for His provision!
So, how has God provided for your family this week? What has He been teaching you? What are you thankful for? How did you watch God work this week? Take a little time to praise the Lord with your blog or leave a comment!
