It's a God Thing

"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." (Romans 8:28)

God has been so amazingly gracious to me today, I can hardly believe this is all real. As you know, I was having a bit of a bummer day over Tuesday/Wednesday with the loss of a job opportunity and my computer crashing. My brother, David, sold me his laptop for a ridiculously cheap price. (I am currently using it.) The day I discovered I didn't get the janitor job, my friend Aimee asked if I'd be interested to be a nanny for her two adorable red-head girls. Then tonight -- get this -- the Lord blessed me with a car. A car of my own! This all happened within the space of 48 hours!

I feel so overwhelmingly blessed. Still in utter shock right now. This is all so much to soak in.

"I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High." (Psalm 9:1-2)

Aw, I'm so jealous of how everyone can always find this great Scripture to go with every situation/ =/ How do you do that?

Congratulations and salutations on the laptop and car, by the way. God understands the loss of everything, from poems and pictures to parents. Always good. <3

What kind of car?

You're online right now. Cool.

It is a white 95 Nissan Sentra. Jer already has plans for vamping the car... sound system, nitris (sp?), all the bells and whistles you can think of. I just want to turn it into an artistic expression on wheels - jungle green paint job and I found seat covers at Wal-Mart with tree frogs.

I'm going to take a picture and post it. We also have a picture of Mama when she was about my age with her first car (a Triuph Herald), named Beep. In honor of Beep, I have named my car Beep Beep. LOL

Then you can all see how similar we look (I am a blonde version of my mom).
