Rejoicing over Blessings.

Regarding yesterday's post here, Dawn said: "I am not ashamed to say who I am. Dawn Marie Harlan Green and I'm now a Christian. God is so good. Praise be everyone here.  This is my testimony.  Thank You, Vondi"

I’ve been rejoicing over the blessings the Lord has showered on my friend the last couple days. They just seem to keep piling up. She called last evening and said, “You are going to have to add more to my testimony.” ( Right now she is operating off a cell phone—kinda hard to write much)

Yesterday after she talked to me she had to run to her mother in law's for something and her son called to tell her they had just received a three day eviction notice. They have three days to be moved.

Now here is the part that blesses me—God had ALREADY planned that all out! The house, the electricity, the gas, the large appliances (Oh, I didn’t mention that, the land lord had promised to move some of the large appliances in. Those went in yesterday.)

Remember the scripture: “Before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.”   Well, it happened just that way. That three day notice would have knocked her off her feet, but the Lord already had her support system in place! Isn’t that great!

And before she left her mother in law’s house the case worker, who had been working with them since the violence incident and her husband’s arrest, called to say they had a RENT check ready to send as soon as she got them the name and address of her new landlord. All I can say is: I’ve never seen JFS work that fast. She only notified her caseworker late on Friday of the new housing situation!

They spent the day moving furniture. As of last evening, the old house is nearly empty!

But here is the icing on the cake. Last night…nine or nearly ten o’clock…she called, so excited. She had filed their income taxes a while back and was hoping that the return would come by the end of March when she had arranged with a couple of her bill collectors to make a catch up payment. So when she got home tonight—to her mattress on the floor—she laid down and was scrolling through her email and found a note about her taxes. Thinking it was just a message confirming her filing she passed over it, then she found a second message about the same thing.

THEN she read them both and paid attention. There were phone numbers and passwords.  When she called them she discovered that her tax return had already been deposited in her account. THREE WEEKS BEFORE IT WAS DUE!

To say she could hardly contain herself is an under statement.

I have laughed and cried until my face hurts. The blessings have certainly been showered over her. But then she really needed them.
