Answered prayers

God is so good - and His timing is perfect!

A few weeks ago, in my daily prayers, I was thanking Jesus for each member of our family. When I came to Joshua, I thanked Him for the 18 1/2 years we had Joshy here with us! I also asked Him to please not let people forget Joshy, and that his witness not be forgotten. Well....God is such a loving God - the next day I get this picture. It is taken by a professional photographer, dedicated to Joshy's memory. It said, "This picture is in memory of Josh, the man my son is named after"... it went on to list his name. I just started bawling, in praise because of all the things going on in the world - He did this for me! God, You are so amazing!!!!

Then today I was out of eggs, I need them to make supper tonight. Last night, I was picking the green tomatoes in the snow and didn't get to the neighbors where I buy eggs. So what happens? At school this morning, one of the mother's told me she had a dozen eggs for me! He supplies ALL of our needs!!

Lastly, over 200,000 acres near here burned from dry lightning last Friday - ranches were being evacuated, the winds were pushing the fires towards little communities - and God brings on the moisture! It was 3 fires in one - and they have 2 almost out, and 1 under control! Monday it was in the form of rain, and the last 2 days we have had snow! Our Lord, God Almightly is all we need! Fall is in the air here in the high desert!

Until we meet again, may the good Lord take a likin' to ya'!
