ER, whoops. (Works of God Monday)



So, yes, this is Tuesday, and I have to admit that posting yesterday was one of the last things on my mind, but it did flit in and out throughout the day. Let's just say that my offline responsibilities drew my attention more, um, loudly. Literally.

God has been faithful, encouraging and strengthening me and allowing me to see Him working in others. His grace is so amazing, so awe-some, and I am floored with the outpouring of it on us this week.

We had a great week last week, and are continually seeing God at work in our family and all around us. Sunday was (finally) the day we dedicated Evan to God, and publically declared our dependence on God for wisdom in rearing him to be a godly man. What a blessed family we are to have Evan - he is a fantastic kiddo and a delight to have around, and we are SO grateful and humbled that God has chosen to give him to us. It was also very fun to share this day with a friend from way back and their newly adopted little one. Blessings abound!

Yesterday I went to a few of our neighbors' houses to hand out some flyers for my Pampered Chef Grand Opening open house, and I knew one family had recently had a baby, so I inquired about him and found out that he is very sick and in Ann Arbor! Please pray with me for K, and his family. I cannot imagine the hardship and emotional distress this family is under. I am also very glad I went around to the neighbors! Please pray for me that God would allow Pampered Chef to open doors of relationship building in our neighborhood. I would love to be able to share our family and our faith with our local mission field!

So, I know some of you have already written a post - would you still link it, even though it's Tuesday? And if you haven't posted about God's working in your life, consider it Works of God Tuesday, or Wednesday, or whatever day and link away!!

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

In the Mister Linky widget below, simply type your name in the top box, or a short description of the work that God has done, and then in the second box, paste the link from your specific "Works of God Monday" post. Feel free to use the image from the top of this post if you like.

I wish we could have been there Sunday at the dedication. We continue to pray for your family as you seek to glorify God together.

I'll be praying for opportunities you may have with your neighbors. Also, I hope your open house goes well this weekend. Wish I could be at that too! Glad to know that God is behind our being apart and that His way is perfect. :-)

This story has been quite powerful and touching to me regarding the power of prayer. If anyone gets a chance to read this, please pray for this sweet little girl and her family. It is a tragedy that anyone should have to go through this.

Yea, this is the video too of the girl's parents asking for prayer. Very touching. Couldn't imagine what they are going through.
