Mommy Theology-Innumerable Blessings

Psalm 81:10 "I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it."  This verse is one that guided George Mueller as he trusted God to provided food and finances for the orphanages he began.  It is said that one morning they did not have milk for the children's breakfast, and Mueller called the children to the table as usual then thanked the Lord for His provision.  Not long after, a milk truck broke down in from of the orphanage, and donated its dairy to the children.  God truly does provide for each of His children in big and small ways.  Our family has been abundantly blessed with material possessions, food, and much more; yet God has seen fit to bless even more.

On this life detour our family has been on the last two weeks, we have seen God's hand of provision in so many ways!  In fact, it's been too many to count!!!  Families, churches, and ministers in the Carthage community have come to give us meals, money, and even Christmas gifts for the boys :0)  I have really been amazed at how God is showing us His love through His people. 
Today, a dear friend and I went to lunch, and while there she gave me a card that the church staff she is apart of had taken up a love offering for our family.  Then on top of that, they had Christmas pajamas and toys for both of our babies!  Wednesday night as we were visiting a local church, Joshua was asked to share a Word and after the service the precious folks took up another love offering for our family.  One day last week, we had a family come by just to pray with us and give us a
a gift.  This is not all God has done, nor do I cease to thank Him for these blessings; but even more for the wonderful friends He has placed in our life here in Carthage!
Visiting some of our pastor friends and seeing how God is working in their local churches has been another blessing. As well as, Joshua being invited to preach this Sunday; then again the first week of January.  
Mommy's Angels!


Yesterday, we had an precious gift that brought tears to my eyes...as we were able to watch our third treasure via sonogram!  Seeing this little one "swim" around, then seeing his {or her} big brothers watch was priceless!  Ethan wouldn't let the baby's picture out of his sight yesterday, and last night he came to me and said, "I need to pet the baby" then began to rub my belly.  Yes, children are a heritage!  We are so grateful for our all three of our jewels!  Thank you for your prayers these past two weeks.  God is providing, and we know He will continue to.  Praise the Lord!  Psalm 121 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
