I wanted to post a few photos of the many material blessings God has given us during the last three weeks we’ve lived in Hope.
My new washer and dryer! We had planned to purchase these with the money Terry made from the sale of our 1999 Lumina, but the church wanted to buy them for us! What a blessing!
Right before we moved in, the church had to replace the stove. This is my new one! (It’s the kind that you can program to come on or shut off! Isn’t that neat?)
I’ve owned this fridge since we got married. We had $1,000 for a honeymoon back in 1998. However, our little apartment didn’t have a fridge, so we had to use $600 to purchase one. Needless to say, our honeymoon wasn’t what we’d planned! The fridge had an ice maker, but we didn’t have a water hookup to run it. We didn’t have one in any of our six other residences, either. Until now! Yes, I now have a working ice maker! And this after nearly pitching my ice container (that holds the ice) while packing up in Texas! I’m so glad I saved it! See! It’s making ice!!!
This is a view from the window above my kitchen sink! That’s right, folks, you heard right! I have a window over my sink! I can look out my bird feeders and my petunias and my begonia (not pictured)! I had this interesting bird at my feeder and had to snap a photo right before church one Sunday morning. Only two of our other houses had windows over the sinks; this is something I really had missed.
The Lord has given me many material blessings, which I do not deserve. As all of this was happening, I kept expecting one of our members to say “Excuse me, there’s been a terrible mistake. We thought you were someone else.” But so far, that hasn’t happened! [sigh of relief!] Everyone here seems to like me for who I am. We sure do feel at home.
Please keep us in your prayers as we try to reach Hope for Christ.
