From Whom All Blessings Flow
I am perpetually overwhelmed by God's many blessings. Wholly undeserved blessings, bestowed on this wholly undeserving sinner!
Why He gave me such a Godly, wonderful (and handsome!) husband is beyond my comprehension.
I've spent the last week or two packing up just about everything we own, since we'll be closing on our first home this week -- there are too many blessings to count in that situation! Not least of which was finding a tenant to rent our apartment, allowing us to get out of our lease early without penalty.
We have plenty of food on the table, a roof over our heads -- truly, what more could we ask for?
And, to top it all off, I have the most adorable niece in the world! *wink*
God is indeed gracious. It is so easy to be grateful and "contented" when it seems as though heaven is raining down blessings. It's also so easy to take it for granted. But God's blessings continue to flow, even when things seem bleak from our human perspective. "Blessed" does not equal "supplied with every type of material comfort and desire." I hope and pray that when times of trial come (as they surely will!), He will remind me of His continual care and His promise to supply all our needs.
In the meantime, we don't have to look far to count our blessings. The roll of packing tape continues to diminish, as the mountains of boxes grow. There are so many things to look forward to -- some grass to call our own, for instance! Room to spread out. A garage. Our very own laundry room (collecting 20 quarters a week is no easy task!).
Posting may be sporadic over the next days/week, but as soon as we settle in I hope to return to my not-so-regular posting schedule!
