Not More Than We Can Bear

The Afternoon Meal, 1739

Our Financial troubles are easing. Yesterday was a beautiful day. The sun gave its warmth and the day was bright and pleasant. I sat on the front porch and read a Dickens' novel.

Mr. White and the men of this house have been busy installing a new hot water heater.  There are all kinds of plumbing difficulties since our old model was from the 1950's, and a new set of pipes are required.

This morning, my car was given back to me. It is now fixed. The cost was minimal and that was a relief!

Our financial burden became a joy when angels flew in and blessed us with kindness.  Their collective help made it possible for us to pay for the new heater and plumbing parts so we had no need to borrow money. 

While we still have trouble with our high heating bill, the sky is brighter and we are happy and content.

The warm spring weather has helped me feel so much better. The chill is gone.  The beauty of spring is here.  And even though we still don't have any hot water, we feel tremendously thankful.

Mrs. White

I'm so thankful to hear about God's angels helping out.:) Thank you for posting about the good and the bad in your life with such honesty, but with simple trust in God, while you continue to keep your home. It encourages me (and my mom who I always print your posts for) so very much.
