Angels Around Us

WOW!!! Have you ever just talked and tried to explain something till your blue in the face.(or maybe RED in the face described me better!) I spent @ 3 hrs. off and on the phone yesterday afternoon with agency, DFPS, L1 Identity and Tx.Dept. of Pulic Safety trying to get something. I prayed and prayed to finally get a REAL person to talk to instead of those dang recordings and when i did get a REAL person, they talked just like the machines!  I am really NOT qualified to put all this together! But......while I was about to pull my hair out, I got the neatest message. Just what I needed at the time............THEY ARE HERE!!!! 


Thank you so much Kacy. Thank you so much church family for being the hands and feet of Jesus. Thank you so much to everyone that has already said "I WANT ONE!."  We are "feelin the love" and we are just getting started!  Yep, I was needing something to break my bad, mad, way of thinking yesterday afternoon and this sure did it!!

Now, I wish I could say I got the answers I needed from the above agencies I was talking to, but I didn't so I will start again in just a bit. But first I have to tell you the rest of the story.

When Rick came in about 6 yesterday evening, I was still on the phone trying to work out some paper issues, but I saw when he walked in the door that he was pretty "frazzeled" looking. When I got off the phone, I stood up and pretty much just fell into his arms. He said, "sit down......I have to tell you something."I thought, "oh no...what now."
He began by telling me he had had a pretty bad day and how mad and upset he had been most of the day. And on top of a bad day at work, we had alittle(or big) mom,dad,kids knock down drag out at lunch yesterday! Oh the joys of modern technology.(new cell phone wanted) Anyway, Rick had a long, problem filled day and his attitude, he said, was not the best. And then he opened the mail.

A day filled with one problem after another.......a relaxed lunch(NOT) filled with wants and why nots, crying and hollering, an afternoon of more problems, and a man whos feeling the weight of a self owned business, lots of kids, a crazy wife and thats just the tip of the iceberg!!


With tears in his eyes and in a soft, humble voice, he said, "Look at this", and handed me an envelope. Inside was a card some money. On one side it said, "LOVE GABE HOME", and on the other it said this:

The task ahead of us is
never as great as the Power behind us when
He is Lord of our life!

Wow. No matter what you face. No matter what kind of obstacles. The task ahead is never as great as the Power behind us when He is Lord of our life.
We just looked at each other with tears running down our faces. Neither one of us could say a thing.  We were so overcome with ......the very REAL presence of God. 

We don't know who sent us the LOVE GABE HOME love offering. But we know the love of God was behind it. And we prayed that whoever you are, that you will be blessed beyond measure, just as you have blessed us and touched our hearts.

We are so thankful.

I woke up at 4:30 with this scripture on my mind. So i will leave you with this thought,

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:4

Hoping you have a day filled with peace!


  1. What an amazing blessing! We've had one of those moments, years ago, when we were very low and NOT making ends meet. And a money order came in the mail. No name. Only a note that said, "God loves you."
    Do you believe in angels? We do.
    Everything is going to be fine. It'll all work out and you will have Gabe and I will have Wilson. And we'll look back on all this craziness and laugh. But one thing is for sure. We'll be able to see the hand of God in all of it!

  2. There is nothing I could say to top Jamie's comment. Kim your post this a.m. is God's way of telling you "All is Well with My Soul." Your mad, bad day is nothing but Satan trying to
    bring you & Rick down from that Mountain Top, don't let him in.............

  3. Isn't that just how God does...in the middle of our humanity He walks in. Thanks for sharing. So excited about what God is doing. Jana said in church Sunday, "What a great idea and Kacy does such a good job". We are blessed.

  4. Amen, and again I say.....AMEN!!! to all three comments. Wow....thank you Jesus!

  5. Kim, You continue to inspire me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

  6. What a beautiful post. I would love a bracelet-how much? Do I pay through the donate button?
    God Bless!
