Prayers and Praises

Please continue to keep my mom in your prayers about a new job within the university where she works. She has an interview for one job next week, but there is another job that she really wants and is still waiting to hear from them...

A co-worker of my husband's has been off work for the past few weeks with a work-related injury. At this point he is off until July 16th, and even then, if he comes back to work he will be on modified duties...hard to do when you work in a group home caring for individuals with special needs. He is in a lot of pain and discomfort still, and I think he is starting to go stir-crazy being at home! Please pray for healing for him!

I would like to praise God that my cake decorating business I started last year is starting to pick up all of a sudden! I have gotten two orders this week for cakes in early July...much appreciated since I will be on unemployment during the summer months. Please pray that it will continue to grow so that maybe I can quit my "day job"!

One more thing...this morning while we were yard saling Andy looked down on the street and found a $20 bill!!!! Some people would say it was luck, I say that it was a gift from God. Sort of a confirmation that He will always look after us. He is our Source and will bless us in ways (and places) that we would never expect!

Praise God it's been a good day so far and now I am going to enjoy the rest of it! Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Good Post Julie -- as David would say -- this is what this site is about -- sharing and praising -
Will try and remember these requests and yes on the 20 dollars and yes on HIS MEETING OUR NEEDS

With God , there are no "coincidences"

Dear Julie...That is so nice that you found that 20 dollar bill that the Lord placed there especially for you and Andy!!
When Bernie was out of work one time and I had to help him with a little janitorial job that we had, we were always almost broke, just scraping along.
Well one night we were broke and in need.
As we were walking down the street on a snowy midnight on our way to the cleaning job, we were both looking down and at the same moment we both spotted a crisp ten dollar bill laying at our feet!
Not a wrinkle in it!!
THAT is what we called a miracle!!
Sometimes Bernie brings this up and everytime we do remember this, we still are thankful to the Lord!
Thanks Julie for bringing up such a special memory to me.
I agree with Passing-thru..THIS is a good post!........Love Terry

My sister found a 20 while picking up deposit bottles/cans by the highway--what a blessing that was! I can relate! I found a twoney lying on top of someone's garbage in their can, once. I felt so rich :) (Oh, for you Americans, a two-ney is our $2 coin).

I pray the Lord blesses your cake business. I know what it's like to have a home-based business and pray for the orders to come. I had a prospering one that God really blessed for 5 1/2 years, and then God saw it fit for me to move on, and start a new one.

May God bless you and your husband with His goodness!
