My how things change - chaos turned into blessing

Three years ago today we thought we'd been dealt a pretty awful hand.  I was 20 weeks pregnant, had a 18-month old, and a tree decided to come crashing through our house in the middle of the night.  It was a total mess.  We didn't have extra money, having just finished up paying all of the lawyers from Stone's adoption, and our house had a gaping hole in the back... that flooded every time it rained.

Sounds great, huh?

It actually was.  It really, really was.

Now that we have the benefit of hindsight, I see the huge blessing God sent in the form of a tree, falling on our house the morning of April 10.  We didn't know it at the time, but his plans for our family were so big that the house we were living in couldn't functionally hold them.  He crashed us with a tree and we got a functional house, with the help of insurance money.  What a blessing!

You see, on April 10, 2008, we didn't know about Cash.  Didn't know that he would become a part of our family.  Had no idea that God planned for us to have THREE BOYS!

Thank you God for your steadfast love of us and your constant provisions for our family.  You have blessed us beyond belief!
