Humbled by His grace...

The past few weeks have been so difficult. We have a few family things going on, but foremost, my husbands company closed in December and we are without a job!

I tell my husband that some days are great, I have peace and faith in God to move mountains. Some days I feel like the breath has been knocked out of me. Some days my two brains argue! lol

However, God has already proven Himself true. We are seeing little blessings and provision everywhere that we never expected. We have continued to give, and rest on His Word. I have spent much time in prayer... you know when trouble comes, sometimes your prayer life get's a huge jump start! (not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing) But twice this week alone, we have been blessed by another brother or sister in the Lord.

Thank you God, for loving us so much! Thank you that people put "feet" to your love as well! May I never forget these small deeds, and may I never go without seeing opportunities for me to give back!


  1. We do need to read God's Word when we feel low and weak. God has the right remedy to make us feel better. I am encouraged by your posts, Vanessa.

    We, too, are in very rough times. Thank you for brightening my day and world with your words.


  2. It is wonderful that we have a Heavenly Father that we can draw ever closer to when hard times hit. Just imagine what life is like for people who lose their jobs and have no God, no thoughts of eternity, no idea that this life is just a shadow of the one to come...

    I am praying for you and your family. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help out.
