What is so incredible that even when all these distractions in life are trying to defeat... there is still so many things to be grateFUL for in my life. I can see it so much clearer when I focus my eyes on Papa God. One blessing that just happened has to do with our mortgage. When we bought our home 5 years ago we went with an adjustable mortgage to get a really good interest rate... and since at the time we were paying another mortgage on the house we were trying to sell... every little bit helped. So we knew we had 5 years before any adjustments... with that deadline approaching, we knew we needed to do something pretty quick. Here is the good part... we got a letter from our bank yesterday to advise us of the interest change, which in turn would change our monthly payment. Our interest rate dropped by almost 2% which in turn lowered our payment over $100 a month! We were expecting in to go up by 2%! We have struggled a little financially since I lost my job 2 years ago, but we just continued to give faithfully to God... there was never a question. We found it easy to praise Him through the struggles and now to have this wonderful thing happen... I just had to share that blessing with you... I still find it hard to believe! What I do believe and know is God is so faithful... we can never out-give Him. We give Him glory and praise!
" 'Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,' says the LORD of hosts, ' If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.' " Malachi 3:10
Just a quick card to share... I luv those colors... those are happy colors to me.
