Our Father Knows How to Give Good Gifts


Moving took us by surprise this fall. Ironicly, putting faith in God is sometimes easier when the circumstances are so beyond your control, that you know from the start that no amount of stressing and controling can help you. That might sound too simplistic, and life is always full of surprises. Even after the crazy finding an apartment part was over we found ourselves repetedly in a needy state. But God’s grace is so big He even sent our way gifts from YOU to help furnish our house. Our friends here say it was the fastest move they’ve ever seen. We get a chance to reply giving glory to God and thanking you for your goodness on a regular basis. Everytime we open the oven we sing your praises. So here’s a little dedication to all of our generous friends who have been the hand of God to us this fall. “Our Father Knows How to Give Good Gifts!” Thank You.

Thanks to our gospel choir friends for this welcome mat that greets our guests outside the door.
