A funny thing happened on the way to the store today...

I just can't believe that what started out as a $1500 hurdle has melted away to a $4 anthill.
This week my prayer has been for $79- it's all we needed to complete this part of the process.
This morning as the kids and I were getting ready to go to the store to pick up a few things, as I was putting shoes on and wrangling them up, I just prayed one more time for that amount, because we believe that God has told us clearly that as far as it concerns us, this process will need to go quickly. And $79 was all that was needed to get to the next step.

When we got out to the van, there was a nice little present on the front seat.

There was no name on it. It was tucked in a little gift bag along with...

$72 in cash and change.

How awesome is that?!

So our check and paperwork will be in the mail first thing Monday morning.

God is so good!
