Since last post God has provided money for the car alignment, money for groceries, more small gifts and more big gifts for the family. Shamus was gifted a much needed headset for computer work and an awesome insulated travel mug (for traveling back and forth to his desk and keeping his tea warm while he is busy) and I got one as well (French press which is extra nice for keeping the coffee grounds and tea bags out of the way.) Issac received a Minecraft axe which he is thoroughly enjoying. Es got a pile of ebooks that she has been longing for.
And then, a few days ago, a job fell into my lap. A perfect job that fits exactly into our family schedule. I suddenly find myself working as a part time caretaker for a local senior citizen. It was very clearly God’s provision and God’s perfect timing. The income should fill in the gaps and allow us to get caught up with bills and needs. The situation means I should have time to work on paintings/editing/maybe even writing and plenty of time with my family while still providing for us.
God has also provided ways to take care of a few other needs that worked out perfectly (includes gifts so can’t share.)
Shamus’ computer issues have worked out, leaving him with one less hard drive but a much more stable and faster computer now that he is using Mint.
The weird sleep issues I was having seem to have disappeared (apparently I tried to shift my sleep schedule to fast so that even though I was super tired my body refused to actually sleep. I guess shifting my bedtime from 2am to 9:00pm was a bad idea even if I was tired.)
Also, it looks like the house sale is continuing to go through as at least his most recent attempt by the bank to shake off the buyers failed. We will see if they continue to hold on.
All in all it has been an amazing and wonderful week where God has been showing His provision for us from every direction– a book sale here, a donation there, a gift here, and job there. It will be exciting to see where He leads next.
