The winter is always a difficult time for us financially. Well, I guess the whole year is a difficult time for us in that aspect, but when you're used to barely scraping by, and then your income is cut in half you have to learn what scraping by really means. Though every year when the roughest patch hits, we renew our faith and the blessings start pouring in.
This year we have been so richly blessed that money, food and things have stopped mattering, and we are simply delighting in the overwhelming love that God has surrounded us with.
I am so thankful for the family and friends that my husband and I have been blessed with. To have been given people that love us so eagerly and unconditionally has been our biggest blessing this winter and in life. They have helped us so many times, and in such amazing ways, but the biggest joy they have brought into our lives is there love, and for that we are so truly thankful.
How generous it is, to give from your pocket, but to give from your heart is something truly special.
My prayer today is that each and every one of you receives the blessing of love, and the we are able to give that blessing to others.
