God is our Refuge
In many ways, my life at this moment is uncertain and burdensome. 
In more ways, my life is Blessed.
Everyone views God's Blessings in their own way. I wanted to share what I undoubtedly know for a fact are the many blessings that God has provided for my family in just a few short months.
~Bags of fabulous clothes have been given to my boys that are a perfect fit to one of them.
~Kroger gift cards have randomly arrived in the mail. I feed 7 people in my house - I would choose a
Kroger card over a Tiffany necklace ANY DAY!
~My family has entertained my children, fed them, kept them overnight, bought them crocs and went  
geo-cacheing with them.
~I found a Dick's Sporting Goods gift card in my wallet that was over a year old but still had $$ on it. I
have 4 kids who play sports - I would choose a Dick's gift card over a Tiffany necklace ANY DAY!
~Friends and neighbors have heaped bags and bags of homegrown vegetables upon us. Nothin' better
than a BLT with a homegrown tomato.
~Four "free haircut" coupons were left at my door. I just happen to have 4 children with hair issues. Now
that's a blessing!
~Bestest girlfriend showed up at my house with an arm full of swanky new dresses just my size
Ohhh the power of a new dress!
~Grandparents have kept my children supplied with Fanta, school supplies, princess sweatshirts and too
much love.
~Girlfriends have made me laugh, provided Princess with a mega "can-can" skirt and shamelessly promoted my resume. Can't ask for more than that.
My list could go on...and on...I'm overwhelmed with God's goodness.
Let me encourage you to's Blessings in your life. 
What's on your list that He's blessed you with recently?

Like I said, and like I believe....What you sow, you shall also reap!! You are a blessing to many, so it's no wonder God is showering you and your family just in time!!

I absolutely LOVED this post! It would have made a GREAT linkup for my Just a Motivating Monday carnival :)

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!! I'm glad to have popped over here, because I LOVE your blog too!!! I'm sooooooooo anxious and excited to get my new lens in the mail... I'll let you know as soon as it arrives. I did 3 day shipping, so I unfortunately will have to wait 3, long, dreadful days!

Yeah too bad I never had a babysitter when my kids were little. Oh! Wait....I did, didn't I? (Like all the time.) See I haven't forgotten...I'm still not even close to paid up.
