Great is Thy Faithfulness……

This song is running through my head right now.

Let me just share with you how faithful God has been to my family over the last few weeks.

We decided to have a Hog Roast as one last big fund-raiser to bring Mollie home.

Our friend from college, Russ Ewing, was coming from Ohio to cook for it.

My friends Mike and Lisa Lawler donated 2 hogs to us, plus their time to get them processed for the dinner.

My friends Brandan and Stephanie O’Neal offered the use of their freezer to store our precious hogs.

My friends Gloria Brocksmith and Melinda Jobe asked if we could do a Silent Auction at the dinner, then graciously started donating beautiful, wonderful items for the auction.

Then Russ emailed me saying because of work conflict, he would not be able to make it to Indiana.  He felt horrible!!  I reassured him it would be fine, God would work it out!!

So we needed someone to cook 2 hogs for us……

Jeremy called our friend Pam Clements to see if she could give us any names.  The funny thing was, Pam was calling Jeremy at the SAME time!!  She was calling because her daughter Bethany, is getting married June 16th and they need a minister to preform the ceremony.  Oh, ok, he can do that.  He’s a minister.  Their problem solved.

Jeremy told her of our situation and asked if she knew of anyone that would cook our hogs for us.

She did.

Her future son-in-law.


I think you know where this story is going.  🙂

Jeremy offered to preform the ceremony for Bethany and Brent.

Bethany and Brent offered to cook our hogs for us.

Our problem solved.

We needed to get our hogs out of the freezer and into a refrigerator so they could defrost before Saturday.

Our solution, get 2 small swimming pools and keep them in the garage on ice.

Problem, ice is expensive!!

Jeremy went to our gas station this morning to purchase more ice when the owner asked him what he needed so much ice for.

(We live in a small town, we don’t mind sharing!!)

Owner of gas station tells Jeremy they have plenty of room, we can store them there.  Problem solved.

We have absolutely seen the faithfulness of God in the last few weeks.

We’ve seen His hand in our lives so many times before and the thing is, is that it usually happens in the 9th hour!!  When you need it the most.

I’m so grateful for everyone that has donated their time, money, talent, or words of encouragement to help us with this adoption.

I may not be able to reward you on earth, but your reward will be that much sweeter in Heaven.

Great is Thy Faithfulness, Great is Thy Faithfulness

Morning by morning new mercies I see.

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided,

Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto me.
