Hope Springs Anew
Adding to my joy of new employment, we were given a van. A nice van. A big conversion van. Some of you may have seen my tweets about our car curse and have heard me talk about our four cars (I've got 2 driving teens in the house.) breaking down and going into the shop. Some of the repairs were very costly. And one car, well, it is no more. A sweet, generous family at church just bought a new van and graciously gave us their older one. I will now have a car that I can get to my new job in. We were wondering how we were going to juggle transportation. Doesn't God have great timing?
So today I am resting on my last day of summer, since this new job is year round and I begin tomorrow. No more summers off for me, but that is okay. I am praying that it is less stressful and that I will be able to wrap my brain around writing again.
You see, these blessings have given my hope. There is a spring to my step, and flutter in my heart. I have hope that things are looking up for me and my family. I've seen God at work this week and I am blessed. Hope springs anew.
May you be blessed by the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 115:15
