A big blessing from the neighbor

We were at the Restore yesterday.  They had a set of cupboards.  They weren't perfect but they would probably work.  They were priced at $450.00.  That seemed like a lot of money even though I knew that to buy new would cost thousands.  But God had other plans.

Our neighbor's mom was ending her visit to Canada yesterday and stopped in to say goodbye. The sheep eagerly rushed to greet her.  They seemed to be drawn to her even though they had not seen her often --

Just like me.  I had felt blessed by her friendship from the moment I met her. She told me of not knowing whether to buy the property we now owned, and then after having prayed that the Lord would send another buyer, her daughter had seen our sold sign.  She had actually been involved, prayer wise, in our story before we ever met her.

The day after we got our electricity, she came with a microwave in a wagon.  They had just bought a new one and knew we could use one in the trailer.

Yesterday, as she was saying goodbye, she mentioned that her daughter and son-in-law had a set of cupboards stored up in there barn that they wanted to get rid of.  Would we be interested.  She took us over for a look and we were in awe at how the Lord had, once again, blessed us through these neighbors.

The beautiful oak cupboards were just perfect for what we wanted in our new home.

Now we are just waiting for God to provide the home.  But that will happen in its time.
