Whew! What a week we had! God continues to show us His faithfulness - despite our unworthiness! I was able to finish preparations for the stage makeup portion of the production of The Music Man that the students at CBA performed (3 times!) this weekend. They did an incredible job - so incredible that I will admit I was very pleasantly surprised - and my heart swelled with feelings almost maternal. I'm sitting there thinking, "AAACK! I'm so weird! I must be getting old!"
I was telling Michael that this class of seniors seems a little bit more something than every other year. It is our first group of seventh graders from our Sunday School class graduating, which might be it, but more than that I am feeling most keenly my own age - but more, the swift passage of time this year. It honestly seems like yesterday that I was setting out on my own senior trip, getting ready for my own first year of college.
I so want these students to fully realize the blessings God has for their future. I don't know if it is my own senility beginning or what, but I'm really going to miss this class of seniors. God has given them all so many talents, and I love them and can't wait to see how God uses them.
I am also praising God this week for His provision. It often seems like we cannot get ahead with our finances, and there are times we struggle with discouragement over that (just keeping it real, people!) but I am so grateful that God provides just what we need at the perfect time we need it. We have been able to pay all of our bills and continue to be out of debt, with an extra or two here and there. I do NOT take this for granted. God is gracious to us to allow us to trust Him for every penny, every need. I am grateful for lessons in trust.
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!
