We are just praising the Lord for His goodness to us.
As you know we are headed out to help our kids with their new twin boys in Nicaragua. We are so excited. What has been extra special though, is the little “Kisses” that God keeps giving us, extra blessings to make our time there so special. Let me share a few.
We are taking Christmas and Birthday items for the family when we go, as they were not able to be around for Christmas. So we have some big suitcases going. We decided to look into how much an extra bag would cost. After looking, we decided that $30 wasn’t too much and it would take away some of the stress of trying to fit in our clothes to wear! Then that night, we had an email from the airline, asking if we wanted to add an extra bag for just $20 each. Well, we decided that would be great! Now we can bring some extras Debby and Brett are picking up for a little girl’s birthday (March 11). And, I can bring an extra pair of shoes! A toy horse for an 18” doll was requested for Christmas, and we found one at a yard sale. Ok, one horse and two girls, this can work because horses take a lot of care. Well Tuesday, my co-worker brought me a NEW in the packaging (one time item missing) 18 doll horse which had been donated! So now, we can bless both grand-girls with a horse to care for!
God is so good! We are praying that we can be a blessing and encouragement to the family as we visit. I hope to be able to get a good start on getting the little boys into a routine schedule that allows their mom some more sleep than she is getting.
While we are gone, our co-workers will be “Covering our responsibilities” at work. We are so thankful for faithful co-workers who are willing to do that for us. Thanks Team!!!!
