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.

Answered Prayers

Once again God has answered prayers.

The UPS man (not my husband, another UPS man) just delivered a package. It was delivered to my husband and the return address was overstock.com. I was a little panicked, "what did he order?!" Paul was quick to tell me that he didn't order anything, it must be a mistake... but let's open it and see what they sent.

Someone sent us a new space heater!

Since my last name is not on the blog, I am assuming that this gift is from a real-life (or maybe a facebook?) friend or family member who knows my whole name.

To my gracious benefactor - thank you so much! I wish you could have been here to see/hear my kids screaming "Praise the Lord!" I wish you could have been here to see me cry. Please know that I am asking God to send you blessings in return! We really needed this heater! I consider myself very blessed!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

May God richly bless you also, for it is in giving that we receive!

Bethany, it is hard to imagine how cold you get over there. Here we already have all the fans going and dreaming of more air conditioning! I was discussing with the boys this morning how we could rearrange their room to fit in a table and put a desk for doing school work as they have a very average air con in there.
Praise God for his goodness!
