Tuesday's Unwrapped

Good Tuesday morning!  We have been snowed in since yesterday here in the South.  If it even snows an inch we totally shut down so I'm sure you can imagine what 7inches have done for us!  But I've enjoyed the extra days off to spend with my family in the snow.  Although my paycheck will reflect it next week...I may even have to pay them for my insurance :-)

But that is where trust in God comes in.  Do I trust Him to provide for our needs?  This is one of those times that I have to put my faith where my words are.  I have to have the faith that He will provide what we need to sustain us.  He feeds the birds and gives them somewhere to live so why should I expect anything less?

So, on that note, I'm off to enjoy another 'snow day' with my boys!  Hope you all find happiness in the small things He blesses you with on this Tuesday...

'Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?'  Matthew 6:26

God is in control of all things. That is what I am taking comfort in today. We don't have to worry, but He will provide. Amen!
Enjoy your snow day. :)

Allison, I'm right there with you on this one.

Last year, we had record snowfalls in Delaware that effectively shut the state down for a week and then for several days a week later. It did truly horrible things to my business, and set the tone for the rest of the financial year.

But you know what... We survived. Just when I thought I was at the end of my rope, God found a way to throw me a lifeline. He was always there to see me through the fear, worry and trials.

We have snow in our forecast tonight into tomorrow, and there's a good chance it will once again impact my business. This time, I'm laying my fears, worries and hopes at His Feet with the knowledge that no matter what, He'll be there with me. :-)

Have a Blessed Day, and fun in the snow with your family!

Yes, it is easy to say that we trust and have faith that God will provide, but it's when we have to put that faith into action that really counts. You're perspective is right on though. Instead of worrying about it you're taking the time to enjoy the snow with your boys! I hope it is a blessed time Allison. I think we're going to get a little snow today too :)
