Great Things Part 2 !



I received another unexpected gift from God this week.I was not expecting it.It was in the form of a phone call.A call telling me that due to changes in the federal poverty level my insurance was being reinstated!I had not expected things to go this way.I was shocked.And happy.Well,kind of happy.It is a bittersweet victory in a sense.In order for it to stay reinstated I must give up getting paid for the day care I do watching Hope,our granddaughter.Some have thought it odd that I would get paid to watch my own granddaughter.If we were in a better place financially I would agree with them.But not all Grammas are rich.God has allowed us to be in a very humbling place since my husband had to quit working due to heart issues.Though I do not believe it will always be like this for us for right now we are still in this place of humble circumstances.But even so I still consider this life a gift.And though this most recent gift came with a price I will still rejoice in His provision and goodness.And His grace.God's word says he reisists the proud but gives grace to the humble.So,if you too find yourself going through humbling times,rejoice for you may well see His grace in amazing and abundant ways.
Blessings~Sharon

I am so happy for you that you got your insurance re-instated...God is indeed good...and He will take care of the loss of income from your babysitting your grand daughter... He is still in control of our finances as well as everything else...
Praise Him for His goodness...

That is a sort of mixed blessing I agree because we could all use the extra income. But if it's worked out the best, then I'm very glad for you.

I did need the insurance due to some health issues.I did'nt want to have to choose between the two but I had to.So,I will rejoice even though I had to make a hard choice.~Sharon
