Since I posted about my tax fiasco & resulting financial woes, I just have to post these two answers to prayer:
1. Mike will have a 40 hour work week next week! Hallelujah, I hear the angels singing! The plant manager guaranteed them all that he was doing whatever he could to keep it that way. We'll take whatever we can get.
2. My car has been making a strange rattling noise ever since we had that huge dump of snow. Let's face it, when you plow the streets with your front bumper, you're bound to do some damage up underneath. I've been putting off getting it checked out b/c I was worried it would be expensive. Mike & I kept saying that it was probably a chunk of ice stuck up underneath. This week we couldn't say that anymore b/c it's definitely been warm enough for all of that stuff to have melted off. So I took it in this morning. I have to say, the Lord has really blessed me with a trustworthy garage to take my car to. We take all of our company vehicles there, I know all the guys & they know me, & they always give me a great price. Anyway, turns out that there were just 3 trim clips missing from the right front inner fender. $16 later, I'm good to go. Thank you, Lord!
Isaiah 65:24 says,
It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer;
And while they are still speaking, I will hear.
I saw this verse referenced on someone else's blog, & I thought it was a wonderful promise. I am grateful that the Lord I serve is actively at work in my life, anticipating my needs & hearing my prayers.
