Doesn’t God just LOVE to spoil His children?
Words cannot describe how excited I am. In about two and a half weeks time I am heading ‘home’–back to Africa! Just for a week. Oh friends, God is just so amazing. When my dear brother got engaged and asked me to be in their wedding, my first thought was, “Yay…but how in the world are we going to afford the ridiculous airfare!” I only have one sibling, so this is such a special day for both of us. Somehow, I just knew that I knew that my God would provide.
And He did! A very precious family member (on hubby’s side) has blessed me with a ticket to go to South Africa!!!! How amazing is that? There are no words.
So, in just a couple of weeks time I will be heading back to my country to be in my brother’s wedding, and to see all my friends and family. And, I get to meet my new niece, who is just three months old. Such a blessing.
Living on the other side of the world is so hard. My children are growing up with no family around. It really is tough sometimes. But, I am so comforted in knowing that my God knows my needs, every single one of them. And, He is more than able to take of every need, every desire and every longing I have. This trip is His gift to me. And He used a precious man, whom we love dearly, to be the deliverer of the gift. How blessed I am.
I am so excited, friends. The last time I was in South Africa was two and a half years ago when my mom died. What a joy to be going home for different reasons this time–a time to celebrate with the ones I love. My heart can hardly wait.
Yes indeed, God LOVES to spoil His children!
