Tim Needed a Little Lift!
Psalm 3
1 O LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!
2 Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him."
3 But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
4 To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill.
5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
6 I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.


When Tim came home for lunch today, he confessed that he was having a "bad day." Nick's health situation was really getting to him today, and he was feeling blue.
As he headed back to work, I felt bad for him. I didn't really know what I could say or do to make him feel better.
This roller coaster we are on is so unpredictable. Some days I am sad. Other days Tim is sad. Some days I feel positive. Other days Tim does.
The good news is...............God is the same every day and HE knows just what each of us needs!
Today, God knew that Tim needed a lift!!
Late this afternoon one of my friends had stopped by to drop off Nick's medicine she had picked up for us. She was commenting on our house being decorated for the holidays, and I was telling her that Tim was planning to add Christmas lights to the side of our house when he got home from work. My mom jokingly said, "He needs a bucket truck!" As God would have it, my friend chimed in, "We have one at work." I couldn't believe it!
Within two hours, Tim was home for work and riding up to the top of our house in a bucket! He was grinning ear to ear as he was doing something for the first time in his life AND getting lights to a place he didn't know if he could really reach any other way!
I talked to my friend on the phone this evening and said, "Thank you so much! Tim really needed a lift!!!" In a real and a spiritual way, the bucket brought both!
Isn't God amazing!?!?! He really does supply just what each of us needs. And I truly believe that when we are open to hearing from Him, He loves to be creative in answering our prayers!!

Praying God Sends Just the Right "Bucket" to You Today!!
Love you all so much,

This is wonderful, Tammy. It gives me holy bumps...how Tim was so down and the Lord lifted his spirits. Wonderful. Praise God.

I'm wondering, did Tim skip that side of your house in the past? The down falls of having two-story house...I have one too. Climbing on or near the roof is dreaded.
Love and prayers, sweet one.

I love today's post! I am glad that Tim got his lift, both literal and spiritual. That looks like a fun and safe way to put up lights. Hey, can he come over to my house next ;-)

You are all in our prayers.
