After the fire we were given a beautiful log bed.  It was custom made.  It was only used about 5 times by the person it was made for.  I had been praying for a log bunk bed.  No doubt, the Lord answered, "above and beyond all I could think or ask."  

Graham used it in his bedroom at the rental.  Then he put it in his bedroom 
when we moved into our home, but really, it's big.  His room is really small.  

It's bulky.  Gorgeous - but bulky in a small room.  It's a double bunk.  

So there was some discussion as to what to do with the bed.  I would not budge.  I knew that it would be perfect for our "extra" room.  The double bunk easily accommodates a family of four!!

Yesterday three sisters came to stay with us for awhile.  Two home school, one goes to school.  It could be for a bit, it could be for awhile.  The room is perfect for the three of them.  

Isn't it amazing how our faithful Father prepares the way for every, single need we have? 

My heart smiles.  

And thank you, in advance, to all who pray for peace 
and comfort for these precious three sisters during this season.

    We were in town yesterday and Asher was asking his 400th question about the street boys. The kids pray for them at every meal and bedtime. He wanted to know if we could go on a plane to bring you our clothes. His concept of New Zealand to America is that it's just like flying to Australia(3hr flight). I explained we would be posting them to you soon. He was disappointed, so was i. It would be so fun.


  11. God is so very good. He is such a marvelous provider. Blessed be the name of the Lord forever and ever!

  12. God's provision is wonderful! Praying for the girls and for you and the rest of the family!
