Good Things

Good Things

Matthew 7:11 says “ If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!”

I was so so so so (I would add 100 more “sos” there if I could) worried about our situation with Tyler’s job.  I was worried about his hours.  I was worried about what life would look like with him gone all the time. I was worried about being alone so much.  I was worried about when we would find out his assignment after training.

Well, much like the Bible says not to worry, but to pray and ask God about your situation….He, of course, took care of it all.

I have been joking that he answered our prayer in ways that I didn’t even think possible.

He put Tyler on first shift.

That’s right.

My husband got put on days right off the bat.

5 am to 3 pm.

And while he’s NOT a morning person and has to get up crazy early, it hasn’t been a problem.

And even though he works on the weekends, he’s off by 3 pm, so we have evenings together.  I get to cook dinner every night.  He’s home with me.

He has normal hours.

It’s nuts.

We’re both happy.

God did a good thing.

A thing we didn’t even imagine.

All that worry for nothing (of course).
