Being blessed by Friends


Our friends showed up today with 3 pickup truck loads of firewood -- yes, 4 different friends and 3 truck loads and not all at the same time. And they didn't all know each other. What a wonderful blessed surprise.

We have a week of good, dry weather with stormy weather predicted for the weekend and we had only 1 1/2 cords of wood stored for the winter. With Robin's trips to the coast to see his brother he was running short of time.

But now the wood stock has at least doubled. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the kindness of our friends!!!!! Just one more load of fire wood and we will be ready for the snow to come. Neighbor Gavin, is coming tomorrow to cut wood with Robin -- so by Friday we should be secure for firewood for the winter. Thank you, friends. (You know who you are)

Wednesday update: Two neighbors came this morning and helped Robin cut up a downed spruce. In just an hour, with two limbing and one sawing, our stock of firewood for the season was complete. What a wonderful blessing! It would have taken Robin, by himself, all day to do this job.

You need to know that we did not arrange any of this goodness. It was Providence that arranged it. Praise God.
