God's Ways are Mysterious...

Last evening was rather eventful.  Our normal Wednesday evening consists of doing homework, eating supper and getting ready for church.  But last evening was a little different.

I received a phone call from my neighbor asking if we could come get her from her doctor's office.  She is the same neighbor that lost her husband back in October.  So, we all piled in the van so I could drive her car home.  She has not been sleeping well due to many situations all relating to the care of her mother-in-law and the death of her husband and her doctor wouldn't allow her to drive home. So we picked her up and brought her home.  At this point, we knew there would be no way we could make it to church on time. 

About 8:00, our oldest boy noticed that his night light was melting.  One of his blankets was against the nightlight and no one had really paid attention to that.  Had we not been there, we might not have a home right now. 

God is so good to us.  The situation that kept us at home protected us from a major disaster.


  1. Wow...that's amazing! Love how you are able to see God in the little daily things of life.

  2. Wow! I'm so thankful that you all were home to catch this! God works in mysterious ways!
