These two cuties bring so much joy to our family!
Today I am thankful for answered prayer when it comes to finances.
This past Christmas while we were vacationing in Florida, one of my girls had to make an impromptu visit to the emergency room. We were seen quickly by a wonderful doctor who assessed the situation and provided the treatment that was needed. We were out of the hospital in less than two hours time, and my girl was on the road to recovery.
A couple of weeks later, the bills started to arrive. There was one from the hospital, one from the attending physician, and another from the lab. Unfortunately, none of these out-of-state charges were covered by insurance. This became a huge matter of prayer because the charges totaled over $4,000. Talk about an expensive two hours!
Over the next few months, I made countless phone calls and sent letters to the various providers. It didn’t take too long before the hospital bill was completely written off. The physican’s billing company offered a slight discount, but I kept writing letters trying to get the bill lowered.
Since I hadn’t received any updates since April, I called again this week to check the status and was informed that there is a ZERO balance on the account. What a HUGE answer to prayer!
I prayed a lot about these bills, but I have to admit that I worried a lot, too. Four thousand dollars might not seem like much money to some people, but we didn’t have that money available. I was prepared to start making small monthly payments, but God took care of it all in spite of my doubt and fear.
I’m reminded of my sin debt. I couldn’t begin to pay for all of my sins, but Jesus marked my sin debt “PAID IN FULL” when he died on the cross. If you are struggling with a burden today, remember that nothing is impossible with God.
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4:19
“How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?”
The last two years here on the blog have been quiet ones. Life, however, has kept moving right along. I am looking forward to sharing more here this summer while I have some downtime.

I’m going to be taking a blogging break this week. The very best mom in the whole world (that would be my mom) is visiting with us, and I want to just relax and enjoy spending time with her for the next few days.
I hope you all have a wonderful week. Take care! 🙂
