Blessed Beyond Belief
This week a wonderful family donated a minivan to us, so that we could sell our car and still have a vehicle to drive. The car is the last big weight hanging over us. We desperately need to get rid of the monthly note of the car, but still need to be able to get around at least until In-take (our training) begins in September. I hitched a ride to Lake Charles yesterday to pick upthe van and was once again in awe of how faithful God is to us and our needs. The owner, a mechanic, began to list all of the things that he had changed or fixed before giving it to us so that we wouldn’t need to worry about anything. He even stopped to put gas in it! The van is in excellent shape, very clean, and perfect for our family! Once again, we were blessed way more than we deserve!
God has given us just about everything we have prayed for and has provided for every need thus far and then some. Each night as I lay in bed and think back over the day, I can’t help but think at how crazy all of this is. I never imagined that this journey would be so blessed. We have truly been blessed beyond belief and you will too! God confirmed that tonight at Mass with the first reading.

Brothers and sisters, consider this:
whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly,
and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion,
for God loves a cheerful giver.
Moreover, God is able to make every grace abundant for you,
so that in all things, always having all you need,
you may have an abundance for every good work.
As it is written:He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever.The one who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food
will supply and multiply your seed
and increase the harvest of your righteousness.You are being enriched in every way for all generosity,
which through us produces thanksgiving to God.
