It has been a blessed week, though exhausting.
The car now has new tires, and a fixed right front lower control arm thing, and as soon as we have the cash, aligned. It was all confusing and convoluted because my dad got wind of us needing tires thanks to totally bald ones that skidded in less than a half inch of snow. He and my mother-in-law decided to pay for it for our Christmas present, but then there was something broken which needed fixed before it can be aligned, and so on. So my dad ended up paying more than planned for our gift but is now happier because he isn’t worrying about us getting in an accident. The tires still need aligned but that will happen as soon as we get paid for a couple jobs. So God worked it all out and we now have good tires and a fied thing that we didn’t know was broken, and soon it will all be aligned so there will be no more concern in that department.
Several packages full of things from our grocery wishlist as well as from the kids wishlists. This is awesome because we have no money for gifts this year and Hanukkah starts tomorrow night. The kids thought they were getting nothing. Instead we now have the makings for several treats, so we can have a special treat a day, plus they have each gotten a gift – each something they really, really wanted. I also know that at least one other person has ordered gifts for the kids which I haven’t mentioned to them, so that will be exciting to see as well. (I should take a video next time we get a package. Everyone gets so excited because it is always a surprise, and often we don’t even know it is coming.)
We got a coupon in the mail for $10 off $40 in groceries, one for each of the next few weeks so I suspect that will be helping put food on the table.
We have the house decorated for Hanukkah, we are all warm and fed, and God, Lord Provider, is so very good to us.
Have a blessed Sabbath.
