Presence (not to be confused with presents)

In the midst of this Christmas season, I'm very much reminded of God's presence in my life. While I'm worried about the presents I need to buy, I realize that He's there... taking care of me. I am totally happy that I moved to Kansas, not regretting it for one second. I have been very blessed to start working in children's ministry. On Sunday, as I watched the kids at our church do their Christmas program... the program we have been working so hard on for the past umpteen weeks.... it warmed my heart to see them peforming what they had worked so hard on.

God is showing me his tests and He continually blesses me everyday. I'm beginning to sound redundant, but I have never felt His presence more than I do right now. In the last three weeks, I have gotten a job, lost a job, and gotten two more jobs... Starting Monday I will be doing data entry until the end of the year. On January 2nd, I begin my new job at the Boy Scouts Heart of America Council in KC. This means a further drive, more traffic, but more money, AND benefits as soon as I join their payroll (not the staffing place...)

This Christmas season, remember what's important. Remember the real reason of this season and how He has blessed YOU this year.

Merry CHRISTmas!!

Yay, Laffy!
Our God is a good God.
He provides for our needs, exactly when He knows we need it.
He loves to come through for us! =)

Love you.
