Generous Gifts

If you take a look around at the Troops, you can see numerous examples of God's generous and abundant kindness to our family.
Take, for instance, this bare spot in the back yard.

We didn't have a plan for it.

But God did.
A friend from church and school offered us their play set.
Their kids are older, now, and they weren't going to move it to their new house.

Then, after the Coach had contemplated how to dismantle it and move it and reassemble it, we had an offer from another kind soul to move it for us!

Within a couple of days, this was the scene in our backyard. Our kids were watching with great anticipation, as you can imagine.


The Coach did some leveling, put the swings back on, fixed some handles, rails and added some bolts and we were in business.

Sometimes, God's graciousness to our family leaves me speechless.

That is so exciting. God always blesses us more than we could have ever imagined. What a fun lesson for the kids to learn.

Wow! What a blessing...my kids keep asking when we can get a swing set, and I keep telling them, "When God provides one for us!" He can do it!!! Have a good day!
