We are blessed

I don't think anyone's even read our blog yet, and already I have new post!

This afternoon, shortly after Justin left for work, I was on the computer and thought I heard a faint knock on our front door. I finished what I was doing and went to see if anyone was at the door. I looked through the little porthole thingy and saw no one. We have a family of 8 living in our building and their little girls often come up and play in our hallway and occasionally knock, so I opened the door to see if it was one of them. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw something stuck to the sign on our door. It was 3 20-dollar bills!! What a blessing! We were trying to figure out today how to make ends meet without borrowing money from parents, and we both had been praying fervently for God to provide for us in some way. And boy, did He come through! I have no idea who left the money, they took off in a hurry. I have no idea how anyone even found out how much we needed it, except maybe from our pathetic-sounding Facebook status'. I wish there was some way we could thank this person, but he/she obviously did not want us to know who it was. I guess the only way we could possibly thank him/her is to someday do the same for someone else. So whoever you are, if you happen to be reading this, know that we are so grateful and humbled by your kind gesture and will keep you in our prayers. God is so good!

It is amazing how things work out.
I think most of us have similar stories. You have a winning attitude and I believe you will be just fine! Go Distels!
