Thankful Thursday

"And my God shall supply all of your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus."
Phil. 4:19
That was in my bible reading just this morning! Do I have a lot to be thankful for! On Monday it was not truing out to be a good week and Tuesday was turning out the same way. Darin still had not started at Whataburger which he was suppose to the Monday before last. We lost out on the rental house that I had been mentally decorating for the past two weeks. The management company was not working with us at all. I was stressing about finding childcare for two events I had to go to next week and so on. I just kept praying. I even made myself exercise and go running. I decided that I could do nothing but praise God. Complaining, resenting and getting down was not going to open any doors. On Tuesday I got an encouraging e-mail out of the blue from a pastor's wife that Darin and I had served with when he was in Seminary. I have not talked to her in years and we reunited on facebook. Then on Wednesday we went to look at more houses. We not only found one house but two houses in out price range and criteria. I fell in love with the most beautiful house in the neighborhood I had originally wanted to live in. It had just come up on the market this last week. This is one of those neighborhoods as you drive by I told Darin, not to even drive through it because they would all be out of our price range. As we were talking the agent showing us the house had rented to us before when we lived in Kyle and she is vouching for us with the management company. As we were looking at the house Darin got a call from Whataburger and they wanted him to come in at 3:00 that day to start. He is going to get a full week of pay that we were not thinking he was going to get. God is good.
