Works of God Monday

There have been so many blessings this week, and I'm feeling a bit more concise than usual. So I've decided that I'm going to make a list! (In no particular order)

1. I'm thankful that we are close to some of our family! We have had more opportunities to stop by mom & dad's house this summer and they've been over here and I am loving seeing them more often.

2. Mom & dad gave us a kiddie pool upgrade. We now have a 60" blue plastic pool with a sea-themed motif on the bottom. WOO HOO and Aaron is thrilled that the whole family (barely) fits. He asks us to get in and sit down with him (BRRR) And then he asks very sweetly for us to get out so that he can swim. Hilarious.

3. The teens made it safely back from camp at the Wilds, despite three bus breakdowns. They even had to take another bus to pick everybody up when the transmission died in Tennesee.

4. I'm thankful for more trim around doors in our house. Every little bit helps get our house closer to the finish line!

5. Garage sales. I found the 10 cent sales this weekend, folks. For some reason, this weekend's sales hosts were pricing everything super low! I found a handful of children's books, some flash cards (homeschooling here we come!) and a pair of jeans - yes they fit perfectly - for TEN CENTS. I don't think I need to tell you that this is a miracle. I can shop for 6 hours and not find a pair of jeans that fits right, and they are certainly not ten cents.

6. I think this was 2 weeks ago, but I completed a sewing project for a friend, and she paid me the exact same amount it cost for our computer to be unexpectedly fixed. June is always tight, so it was great that I was able to exchange services in this roundabout way.

7. Sunday night we had a special speaker, Kevin Bauder from Central Baptist Theological Seminary. He gave a great message from Psalm 2, which was basically this:

- People will rebel
- God is in charge
- He has a plan we can't begin to understand
- Trust Him, Serve Him.

So I've had a very encouraging week and weekend! I praise the Lord for His blessings! Care to praise Him with me?

"Therefore encourage one another and build one another up..." 1 Thess. 5:11

Kevin Bauder!? Is this kid Kevin Bauder whose parents are Tom and Dee Bauder and used to go church with your mom and me at First Baptist in Freeland? Or an entirely different Kevin Bauder?

Same one! And his parents were at our church last night. It was fun for mom to say hello and thank her for being her Sunday School teacher. He's now president of that seminary. Small world, huh?

Rosemary said...

A small world ... and a big God! That is AMAZING! I remember that God planted a seed in his dad's (Tom's) heart to share the Gospel and look how it grew!!!
And what a neat treat for your mom to see her old Sunday School teacher too. It is important for us to thank our teachers!

Tom is still a pastor in Wakefield, MI. It's so great to see God at work, isn't it? He is so good to let us watch Him doing Great Things!!!

I loved reading through your blessings. It was so funny that I had just decided to make a list on my post too (not as concise as yours, ha ha), and I came over to your blog to see what you might have to find your "Works of God Monday" in similar form. I enjoyed talking to you on the phone today! Thanks for letting me dump on you. :-)
