~A Blessing They Didn't See Coming~

Hey everyone I hope you're doing well today. Things are good here besides me needing to work on my patience. I know everything works out in God's perfect timing, sometimes my memory lapses on that aspect though. The house fell through after discovering an infestation problem. We know another will come-just waiting and praying. Anyway, my husband worked for a Pastor at night doing sheetrock for him. He asked him if he knew anyone that needed a vehicle. Immediately my husband thought of Anne and her family (new friends we have). They went without a vehicle so they could give their oldest daughter a car. They have 5 kids but only 2 that are young enough to live with them still. So yesterday my husband brought it to them and they were so excited!! =) They were without a vehicle for a year. We love when God allows us to be part of someones blessing, it's amazing! God is amazing and faithful-it all happens in His perfect timing and I know that. So, if anyone that loves the Lord could pray for my family and my patience level that would be amazing!

What a wonderful thing to do for your friends in need - I am sure they are super grateful for that! Sorry about the house, but hopefully another opportunity will come soon again.

That must have been such a great feeling to be able to play a part in helping someone out like that. I'm sure that there is a home just waiting for you to stumble upon it. Keep on practising the patience thing, I have to do that too, so you're in good company

I will, I didn't know you were supposed to be getting a house. I guess I am behind the times.

@LovingMyBabies I suppose I should have clarified that by saying I don't believe in it at all, but I respect those who do. I would be a hypocrite not to atleast respect those who do believe. I've had family members who were preachers at one time or another.

Dear God, Please bless Jennifer with patience in all areas of life, bless the fmily with everything their hearts desire. Amen. I remember when someone gave you a van or suv, it nice to bless someone else because you know exactly how they feel.

I'm sure your friends were completely surprised with the van. Hopefully your house will be in the near future and patience is something I need to work on too. I lose sight that everything is in God's time not mine.

That is such a wonderful blessing to see done! I fully believe that God knows the greater picture and he wanted you where you currently are, so you can continue to help those that need it! The right home will come at the right time, when God wants you there! I'll happily pray for your patience (its something I've been praying to god for help with about myself too).
