God provides!

Micah and I were thrilled last night, when we realized that our at-home side business income has already replaced my old full-time job income! (Not that my salary was huge or anything, since I worked at a non-profit;o) The absolute best part is that I used to spend 50-60 hours per week at work and commuting. Now I only spend a couple hours a day and the rest of my time is free to be a wife and homemaker! Six months ago, when we made the leap for me to be at home, I would have hardly believed this. Even when things seem to be impossible, God does provide!

That's so wonderful!! God is so good and so faithful. I wish more people would be willing to step out in faith and see Him bless them for it. He never fails!

I'd love to hear more about your business. Did you post on it and I missed it?

By the way, loved your recent posts.

God really does provide! Not just what we need either, but often times, so much more! :)

I hope you don't mind, but I'd like to add your blog to our list of favorite blogs on the site my mom, sister and I run. :)

Congratulations on this good success!It is just amazing how, with a little hard work and when we honor the Lord in the roles that He's called us to and with our finances; He always is so good to us!

Please post more about your business. My George & I hope to work in our own business of fixing up homes and reselling them. Reading other's stories of success and God's blessing is SUCH and ecouragement.

take care,

Trixie

Anyway, your blog has been a blesisng to read. THe Lord bless yoU!

Thank you, everybody! You have inspired me to post a little bit more about my business, for those of you who are interested. I've been kind-of closed-mouthed up until this point, because I wasn't sure how everything would work out. But now it's exciting to see, by God's grace, something profitable coming from all the time and worry and lessons learned!

Jordan, I would love to be added to your list. Thanks!

Heidi, wow...small world! Lydia must be a wonderful friend in person! I only know her through the blogosphere:o)
