Thank God For People. And Chocolate

I also stained my new hall table. I may have missed a spot or nine, but I can always put another coat on it. The lighting is just so EVEN in the garage, ya know? Thank God the humidity is very low today. It'll dry faster.

I have given myself until the 8th of April to finish the last course. My mom and I are going to visit my cousin in Florida, and I made our reservations yesterday. And the reservations for the truck at U-Haul, and my flight back home from Missouri. I was working the credit cards, I tell ya! I had to wave 'em to cool them off! I haven't spent that much money in a short time since last year when I bought the dining table and the chair in my bedroom. But I have the money for the move, thanks to my brother, and my mom will certainly repay me for her ticket.

I'm also glad my cousin is here. He will look after the kittens while I am gone, and if Dad can't pick us up at the airport, he said he will take off work and come for us and then go back if he needs to.

Looking at all of these things, I can see where God has provided for my needs. Last night my Life Group had a balloon for me that said "Way To Go" on it. And the hostess sent out a reminder email on Tuesday for the meeting and included a mention of the exam and that I would appreciate prayers. It is encouraging, and comforting, to have others with whom to share doubts, and failures, and hopes and successes. And chocolate.

Appreciate your people. Not only those to whom you are related, but those whom God has put into your life to help you and love on you. As annoying as they can sometimes be, they are part of His plan, the one He has for you that is "for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope" (Jer 29:11, NLT)
