feeling the love.

a few months ago we started going to a new church. we sorta felt at home in our new church right away. we had go to the same church for pretty much our entire lives and almost never felt at home there. so, this was a great new feeling. this new church acts like, well, a church. they take care of each other. this past week we have experienced some of that first hand.
on friday i got a call from a lady at church and she told me to send jake over to pick something up. when he got there she had a large basket full of thanksgiving-ish food, a turkey and a roasting pan. even though it was already after thanksgiving we were thrilled to have it and it will go to good use!
the basket:
(complete with sparkling cider & candies)
then, i had volunteered to be a shopper for our churches 'angle tree' program. so, the lady in charge called me during the week and told me that there had been a donation and we would be shopping for a little boy who wanted a soccer ball and puzzles. i was so excited! so sunday i met up with her and she gave me all the information and then she says "i have this little kit that they gave me when i got my mammogram..." (i'm not going to lie, at this point i was worried) "'s for your feet & i can't reach my feet, would you like to have it?" i happily accepted and it turned out to be a pretty cute little package:

so, a few minutes later i was talking to jake outside, juggling moses, 3 cookies and a foot care kit and that same sweet lady walks by, puts something in my hand, smiles a big smile, pats me on the back and keeps i look in my hand (totally confused) and i see it's money...i assumed a $20, i put it in my pocket and while later when we get in the car to leave i pulled it out...and let's just say it was more than $20. God is so good, and i've come to find that he really likes to use cute little old ladies to help us out. His ways are mysterious...and i LOVE that about Him. He always likes to remind me not to worry, just like one of my favorite verses:

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" -Matthew 6: 25-27

thank you God. the lights at the breece house will be on for another month.
