Standing on His Promises

I can't believe last week flew by as quickly as it did! We spent most of the week at home and enjoyed Christmas together as a family. The kids received a Wii for Christmas and have spent a lot of time playing games the last few days. Thankfully most of the games are sports related, so they are able to get some exercise while they're having all that fun. I hope all of you had a blessed time with your family as well. We did receive some bad news on Friday. Our wonderful friend Bro. Cameron passed away around 6:00 p.m. Christmas day. You might remember that I requested prayer for him a while back after he was severely burned in an electrical fire. He never came out of the coma and peacefully went to be with his Saviour on Friday. My heart is so grieved for his dear wife and family, but what a relief to know that he is no longer in any pain! He is with the One he spent his whole life serving. We'll be leaving early in the morning to head to Georgia for the funeral. Pastor Steven will have a part in the service. I would appreciate your prayers as we travel and for the Cameron family as well. I've been scurrying around today in preparation for our trip. I called to make a reservation at the vet's office to board Toby. They said that he's due for shots right now, so we have to pay $139 for the shots PLUS the cost of boarding. On top of that wonderful news, we had to take my truck in to have it serviced today. Oh, what joy! None of these expenses are a surprise to the Lord. He knew in advance that we would be traveling and provided for our needs. We received some money for Christmas that will help with pay for our gas and hotel, and my hubby received a love offering just yesterday from a church that will cover the vet bill. I don't know why I worry about these things; God always makes a way! I am so very thankful this promise:
Phil. 4:19 "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
I hope you all have a great week! For my friends to the north who are snowed in, it's a sunny 71 degrees here in Florida today. :)

I'm so sorry to hear. I'll continue praying for the family.
We call the dog costs, truck repairs, etc. "Murphy-isms". I could list a few things that God has covered for us this past month! He is always faithful.
Thank you so much for your prayers for my mother-in-love. She needs them. Today was hard.
Safe travels....

So glad you had a wonderful Christmas but so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear friend. He is with the Redeemer now though like you said!
PRaise the Lord that He has provided for your needs...we serve a Mighty God!! He is so good to us.

I'm *so sorry* about the loss of your friend. I can't even imagine what his family is going through....

However I am rejoicing with you in how the Lord has taken care of your unexpected expenses.

I wish you and your family a safe trip.

Blessings,
