AMAZING!

We just found out today that God has provided for our family in a BIG way! Cary's seminary has been PAID FOR! Thank you sweet Jesus! Cary started seminary back in Fort Worth after college and went for about 2 years working on his Master's in Divinity. But never finished and working at a church full time (not to mention being young and maybe a little irresponsible) his grades were not so hot. But since we've moved to FL, he has resolved to finish that Master's degree, which is about half complete. But it is so expensive! We were going to try to do one class a semester because that's all we could afford honestly. And it would have taken 10 years to finish school! But Cary received word today that an anonymous donor has made a financial contribution for him to finish his seminary education. So he will be starting back to school this fall. Isn't that exciting? And when I called my mom to tell her, she said, "You're not going to believe this, but I actually prayed for THIS VERY THING earlier in the week, that God would lay that on someone's heart and that He would provide a way for Cary to finish school." To which I replied, "Can you pray me up a car??? Preferably new or gently used, 30 mpg???" To whomever the anonymous donor is, I'm praying BIG blessings upon them and our family will be forever grateful! And thank you Jesus for your AMAZING provision yet again! This is how you know you're living in the sweet spot of God's will for your life...the blessing are so abundant, they just follow you wherever you go. You can't even outrun them, they just keep catching up to you!
