I'm grateful that unexpected things in my life shaped up to allow for all of this to happen. Some of those things were not pleasant at the time they occurred. But, of course, the Lord knew better. And as Sister A. would teach, It seemed bad, but was it? I was so upset and in tears when a musical was not a possibility this year. But look at all I was able to do because it didn't happen. Not having any tenants had their pluses and minuses. But the tighter budget of living on my own in the house also meant that I had a place to offer so many family members. I had 24 different family members stay the night this month. (Plus 8 more stop by to visit for an afternoon.) This would never have happened if others were in the house. It was a delight and a joy.
I'm so glad the Lord always knows best, and that He always will make things right.
