    Our blessings this week:-

    1. Our next door neighbour and our former neighbour both gave us lots of fresh fruit free of cost! We were able to bless others with the surplus
    2. DD13 and I both had clothing needs that needed to be addressed; not only did we find a suitable dress (brand new)for her to wear to a formal award dinner for $10, I also found much needed work pants for $1!
    3. bought a fast food dinner (due to poor planning) - had to wait so long on our order we were given a refund.
    4. DH, the older DDs and I all had work this week - praise God for a job and an income however small.
    5. Our landlady has been very gracious about our tardiness with rent. Had a bit of a setback recently with unexpected medical expenses, but we will be back on track soon (stepping out in faith here!)

    Sometimes when the going gets tough, it's hard to think of ourselves as blessed.  But if we stopped to think about it long enough, we'd realize that God blesses us often with little blessings as well as the occasional miracle.  We have to remember to thank Him for them all.


    Philippians 4:19

    And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus

     Tonight I am grateful for the scriptures that I can read when I am discouraged & find hope within their pages.  I am thankful for prayer, where I can not only lay my troubles before the Lord, but thank Him for His bounteous blessings in my life.  We have so much to be thankful for: a home, jobs, children,food, friends, & our faith.  I am grateful for Skype, so I can see & hear our little granddaughter clear over in Georgia, & have her see & hear us.  We have been blessed with so many inventions that make our lives easier - telephones, washing machines, crockpots, etc.

    Thank you for sharing blessings and struggles. They are connected! Please remember if there is a pray need, big or small to post it. We need to support each other in prayer during our struggles.

    I am so thankful for the grocery discount stores. DIL is struggling with many food allergies. It makes their food budget very high. Sat. We found a lot of food that she can eat, some easy foods for DS that he can fix himself.  Snacks for their DD.  She was only $3 over her budget and feels that she was blessed with enough food for two weeks.  I am thankful that she is learning how to shop and plan ahead. She grew up in a family that shopped at the most expensive store in town. This hasnt been easy for her.

    We  were blessed with snow that helps our towns economy. That helps to keep two of my kids in work. SIL was blessed with OT this week. Beans family needed that extra money. God is good. Sometimes we have to look deeper to see it. Babs
