The Highest Form of Giving!

With Christmas over and the new year behind us I wanted to take some time to update y'all on how amazing our holidays were! I can say that I know without any doubt that my Heavenly Father is completely aware of our family! He seems to keep sending us little miracles that say, "I know you are there and I haven't forgot about you, so hang on and keep trusting." I can't even explain to you how many miracles have blessed this home! I would love to list them, but I know my mind couldn't even do the Lord justice in recalling them! I will just say that people have given to our family in ways that we could have never imagined! The crazy thing is this: we aren't even worthy of them and we don't need them like so many others. I stand amazed!

I should also report our new path! Trever has chosen to become a firefighter! He has passed his written and the physical test and now we are waiting & hoping that he will be chosen for an interview and make it through that process! I couldn't be any more excited for him! He is so much happier & feels like he is finally on the right path! The process of becoming a firefighter is undetermined in length. Some get on with departments quickly and others it has taken years. So, there really isn't any rhyme or reason to how long this will take. In the meantime, he continues to work for All American Chimney and truly loves the physical labor and working with his hands!

There has been a lot of silent suffering going on over here. I am not so silent about our trials and Trever tends to be very silent! We have grown to a place that I never knew existed. I love that man more than I knew possible and I can feel his love for me more than ever before. We pray that he will be hired quickly and know that the Lord has a plan for us and whatever happens will be His will. In the meantime, we pray constantly for answers in how to maintain a family in this economy and hope that we are learning the lessons that are being placed before us!

So there's my first post back into the new year!
