Welcome

Welcome! This is where it all began. I no longer post on this website and some of the content reflects former convictions and understandings. Some of these posts are hard core on issues that I am softer on these days. I deleted many posts that I feared would lead people into legalism, so if you find a missing hyperlink that may be why. Our family is no longer "quiver full," I no longer wear a headcovering, and I do not wear skirts/dresses exclusively. These days I write at Covered By His Hand.

Propane Tank Mystery

First, you need to know that we were almost entirely out of propane. Secondly, you need to know that we could not get anyone to leave gas and bill us. Everyone wants to be paid before they fill.

Today we saw a propane gas truck leave our house, we never heard him come in. Paul checked the door for some kind of advertisement. Instead, he found a receipt for 100 gallons of propane -PAID!

One of you dears put gas in our tank and heat in our house. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. I didn't expect anything like that to happen, because none of you has my real address (or do you?). I asked my Dad, but he said it was not from him (but they are sending us some money to buy gas for a one-day trip to IL next week).

The only part of this mystery that I can solve is this: God is taking care of our needs - as He always has.

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than eat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even
Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matt 6:25-34 (KJV)

who knew Jesus worked for a propane company?!

Gretchen,
Funny. Though maybe it would be more correct to say that Jesus owns the propane company ;)
