unexpected blessings.

that's all I can say.

Yesterday was an amazing day - great "meetings" with friends in town to discuss amazing kingdom opportunities.

not to mention my good friend Jenna's adoption story going viral thanks to Give1Save1 and Baron Batch committing to give .25 cents for every new follower this week on twitter (@barronbatch)

then I started feeling sick......

this happens to me once a year at least.
I run myself down.  go go go.  and then it catches up with me & I get sick.

so since yesterday afternoon around 4pm - I've been layed up in bed/on the couch sleeping.
{and feeling sorry for myself for missing some really fun Christmas parties}

for the past few weeks I've gone on and on about our africa trip on facebook/twitter/blog trying to get people to donate items & cash to the orphans of Rwanda & Ethiopia.

Notice what I just said......I was trying to do it.

and until today when I was SLEEPING God did the work. 
turns out maybe he didn't need my help. haha

throughout the coarse of today - while sleeping - friends (some I have seriously NEVER met in real life yet) left collectively over $1,000 for my mission trip!!!!!!!


along with bags of medical supplies & sheets for the orphans in Rwanda & Ethiopia.

My friend Jenna said it best while texting back & forth about Gods faithfulness...

Aren't random surprises the best?
It's like a little kiss from the Lord!!
HE is really good at romancing his children!"

Amen Jenna.  

I am overwhelmed with gratitude.  Praising our Father.  Reminded once again of his faithfulness.  we are his children.  he delights to give us the desires of our hearts.  the desire of my heart is for these precious orphans in ethiopia & rwanda to know His love.  and they are HIS children too.  of coarse he wants to overwhelm us with his love for us.  

thank you for sending me.  if I learned anything in my Perspectices class this year is that the senders are just as important as the goers!  neither group can do it without the other!  may you be blessed in your obedience to the Lord. 

May HE get the glory!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. AMAZING!!!!! God is so stinking incredible!!! Love the way he does things! :D

  2. God is SO good. seriously. sometimes we have to be the weakest to finally let him do his thang. ya know? i hope you're feeling better, but so amazing that God took that opportunity to do amazing things in your life! he just works in the most mysterious, best ways. ALSO? that verse? needing that. thank you. =]

  3. No matter if you prefer white or multi-colored Christmas tree lighting, led strobe lights may be the best choice for you. These lights have been on the market for several years now, but only in the last couple of years have they become affordable for us regular folks. Yes, they still are more expensive than miniature classic tree lighting, but they are just worth it in my opinion.


thanks for the love!
