God's provision

I got a call this week: apparently my old government job

was renegotiated (union) at a higher salary.

I got an unexpected check from pay and benefits

for back pay!

I had been praying and had asked St. Nicholas for his prayers.

These prayers were answered within a short time period.

Today after French class I went to my favourite health food store.
They had soup and bread that they were giving away,
as it would expire tomorrow.
So all in one day I was given financial provision and yummy soup and bread!
I have come to a decision as well,
affirmed by my parents
(still have to ask my spiritual father)
of what I am doing next.

Here it is:
1. I am going to look for a cheaper apartment downtown.
2. I am going to use some of my savings (I lived frugally and saved money)
and do full time French starting DV in January for 8 months or so.
3. I will continue doing part-time French meanwhile.
I feel so much better than I did a year ago.
I still have my moments and French is NOT super easy for me to learn,
but I feel more hopeful.
I also need to trust God for my future and not worry.

Yes, thank God!

These pictures are part of today's many gifts - I took them this morning!

I was very happy to see you as well. It was so good to be in church together! :)

God is good.
and His provision always comes 'juste a l'heure', and not a moment sooner.

So often it's hard for us to recognize our prayers being answered in the moment. It's wonderful every now and then when an immediate need is filled like this, isn't it? I'm glad to hear that you are doing well and feeling good about your plans.
