Multitudes on Monday~$114 dollars from God

The laundry has been piling up over this past week with no dryer, and a washer who's spin cycle has lots its spin.  God has been faithful in all this.   I have been ever greatful for the lack of rain (dispite all lawns yellowed) because each day I have been able to get a few loads strung out on our makeshift clotheslines on our deck.  Our clothes have smelt like joy. 
We discovered a very wonderful deal for a new washer and dryer.  Payments we would be approved for, and that we could probably swing with some sacrifices.  It would be 114.00 a month give or take a few cents.  We prayed that if this was God's will for us to have a new washer and dryer (we have never owned a set that is new) that He make it so obvious.   One of our cheques came in the mail yesterday, that Canadians recieve monthly for their children from the gov't..a nice perk, a real blessing for us since we live on my husbands part time employment.  In July we knew it would either go up, or down.  It went up... 114.00.  Exactically the amount we needed.  If God was any more obvious that this was something He wanted for us, He would have delivered them to the door Himself. 

God is so good, He makes me laugh in amazement. He is just that good.  I dont call this a coincidence, I call this a divine moment.  God proved to us His faithfulness because we have been doing our best to prove our faithfulness to Him. 

And as I continue to hunt for 1000 gifts, I put this at the top....

  1. What a blessing! I am also dryerless for now. We recently moved and the new house has only gas hook-ups for the dryer and wouldn't you know my dryer is electric LOL. So I take joy in hanging my laundry on the line and listening to the wind whistle as it blows through it. It's almost like it sings to me :) Still praying for a dryer though ;) wouldn't want too much of a good thing.
