He Reminds Us That He's There

Dylan's job is not in a very good place right now. We really don't know how long it will last. This has caused a lot of stress at our house. So yesterday, when we found out that Dylan's three small student loans had been paid off by the lender, we were reminded. Reminded that Heavenly Father is there. This is something that doesn't happen by mere coincidence. This truly is a blessing.
It doesn't matter that is wasn't thousands of dollars that were forgiven, but it does matter that we recognize it as a blessing from him. The stress has been not fun, and this was just a small testimony to me that He watches over us, and that regardless of what happens, he will take care of us.
I have had very little faith in this whole process the last few weeks. I've just had this pit in my stomach that we will be homeless. That's me the worry wort. Dylan, on the other hand, has kept saying that everything will work out okay. I now know that it might be hard, but we will make it through.

He Reminds Us

Thank you to the wonderful sisters that I visit teach. I was reminded today that Visiting Teaching is truly an inspired program. I cannot count how many times visiting teachers have blessed my life. I am so grateful that I get the opportunity to pay it forward. He sends us to help each other.

He Answers Our Prayers

Last night before bed Claire prayed that our family would be safe in the storm. When 4:30 a.m. rolled around and we were huddled in the closet I was mumbling the same prayer. After driving around neighboring cities today, I feel so blessed. It was a terrible storm that ripped through here last night, and we managed to escape unscathed. Others were not so lucky, trampolines lying in the streets. Whole fences blown over. Lots of trees snapped in half. Many swimming pools filled with fence. And Claire's basketball is sitting in the same spot it was yesterday. How??? He really does answer our prayers.
