We Got a Lot for Christmas, Including the Flu

The flu started just a couple of days before Christmas and by the day after Christmas we were all achy, chilly, and coughing. Besides the obvious misery and bad timing with our baby due in one week, what really stood out the most was God's grace and mercy during a rough day.

It all started with a phone call from a friend at church. Within a few hours we had two dinners delivered to our door step and scores of folks praying for us in our church family.

Later in the evening, we had many groceries delivered to our door step from my cousin and her daughter. They drove forty five minutes from out of town to deliver us all our favorites. Thank you Mom for passing on our needs to them. God is so good and shows us through others how He is always there. Praise God for family, church family and natural family.
