Works of God Monday

What a weekend! Michael came down with strep throat - he who has been healthy all winter - and hopefully we can avoid passing it back and forth. Does anyone know if antibacterial gel is safe for lips? I can't seem to stop kissing the man. Tee hee.

SO many blessings this past week!

Although Michael stayed home from church, that did not thwart the plans that he and my dad had so cleverly figured out - chinese takeout for Mother's Day! Mom & dad came over and we feasted on Chinese! Mom & dad bought me a great gift - a new Pyrex 9 x 13. Mine disappeared - does your stuff do that too?

Dad also had a birthday this weekend - fifty eight! I'm so SO glad for birthdays! I broke my no-sugar fast. YUM. Now it's back to no sugar for awhile, until the next birthday or holiday! I do feel much better, even though I still miss the sugary yumminess.

I've lost 2 more pounds, hallelujah.

We were blessed by a generous unexpected Sears gift card in the mail, thank you to the ones who gave it! We are so grateful!

FIVE of the teens in our junior high youth group earned enough points (50,000) to make it to the top point level, and will be earning a Bible with their name on it - I'm praising God that there are this many teens who worked so hard for this goal, and also praising Him that we found great Bibles that are within the price range, and a coupon code for 10% off the total order!

I've been a witness to some incredible spiritual growth of a wonderful family in our church - it's FANTASTIC to see God working, and humbling to get a front row seat.

I found out "by accident" about a great deal on Kraft Mac & Cheese at Meijer this week - they are on sale for 50 cents, and if you buy 6 you get a $2 catalina for $$ off your next order - great news is you can keep rolling the deal over, essentially getting 6/$1. Needless to say, we are well stocked. I know it's definitely not a health food, but it's cheap and it is yummy according to the majority of the members of this family. And if I decide we've had enough, I can donate to the food bank. I praise God for providing this great deal!

My children are healthy, and happy, and I get the opportunity to be their mom. What a blessing!

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!

Sounds like a good Mothers day, pray Michael gets well soon.

I put labels on everything or write my name with a black sharpie.

I have lost many a pan at church.
Now I get disposable or personally pick it up after the function. I buy cheap garage sale replacements.

We had a lovely time going to church with Nate and Lissa, a nice BBQ and walk.

Hi Jenny - I really like your haircut! Those boys are quite the handsome little guys, all dressed up in their Sunday best;).

I hope that your husband feels 100% very soon.

It was reported to me that your dad was spotted with bags of Chinese food. We had Chinese as well from the same place except the women folk picked it up.

Thanks for linking.

I liked reading all your blessings and seeing the photos:)

My 9x13 flew out of my cupboard and crashed into a zillion pieces;). But I found one at the thrift store for $2;)
