unlikely angel


last week i finished reading Ashley Smith's account of her hostage ordeal ... it made me shake my head and wonder at the way God takes care of His children - giving us choices along the way ... i recommend the book ... it was a pretty fast paced read ... Ashley is nothing but honest in sharing her struggles before this horrific event ... and how God intervened in a miraculous way!

~~~~~~~~

we have company ... one of our old friends drove 1000 miles to come give us a hand with sorting the outdoor stuff and then the dreaded "dump run" ... YAY!!!! ... i'm hoping for reasonable weather this week ... after all it is January in Manitoba!

our bud said he noticed a decline in Leo's health, since his last visit ...

the Lord has also been bringing more "safety nets" into my life ... just to keep me patient, until the prayed for rental or permanent CONDO comes along! i guess the biggest job will be this move ... after that - we only unpack what we need ...

thanks for your prayer on our behalf!!! blessings on your week!

How wonderful it is to have friends willing to drive so far to help out! That shows a true friend...not everyone would be willing to do something like that.

I'm so glad your friend was able to come and help you. And, if anything, his observation of Leo's health serves as validation of your decision to move. It's a heavy physical burden you're carrying there.

God does take care of his children. You are his little girl. (hugs)

The dreaded dump run is always the worst part. I hope the weather is warmer nowadays.
