God is So Good!

Let me start by saying that God is SO good! Wednesday after discovering that we were not pregnant, I came home from work and called Josette. What a blessing to have a friend and doctor that "mourns with those that mourn and rejoices with those that are rejoicing." After a good talk, and an even better cry, I put on some praise music and was able to sleep for a couple of hours which did my body and heart good.

As the day progressed and after several phone calls between the Hunter's and the Kavanaugh's, it was decided that Doug and Josette would pick us up for a double date. When they arrived at our house, Rob informed me that he had a surprise for me. I, of couse, was completely clueless and it even took me a few seconds to recognize the surprise even when it was right in front of me. The surprise?...

This isn't the actual limo we used but the look and feel of this image is pretty close. Doug had someone from work drive us in one of his limo's up to Caribou for dinner and a movie. It was so much fun!

Once we came home and were able to talk, Rob and I both commented on how gracious and kind God had been to us. From our perspective the Lord used Doug and Josette to lavish His love on us, to show us a little favor, and to let us know that He has His eye on us. We are so incredibly thankful that we live here. God has surrounded us with so many friends that have supported us in prayer, and have encouraged us with Godly relationships.

Once again I must say - God is So Good!!

Excellent! What a wonderful surprise!! I am so glad that the Lord showed Himself to you in that way on that night in particular. His eye is, indeed, on the sparrow, and He is watching you.
