I'm one who prides himself on doing things for himself. I guess it runs in the family because Jacob is starting to spread his wings that way too (over his hair!). It is hard for me to accept help when I think I can do it on my own. The past 2 years I have had to suck it up and accept help from others. When our church decided to cut our pay, it hurt and still does! But God has not abandoned us and neither have friends and family. God has met our needs in so many ways. It is humbling to accept help esp. $$ from others. But God blesses others with $$ and some of them feel led to help people in need. We have been fortunate in that way. Today I stood in line over 5 hours to receive $$ from the Red Cross. It was not fun but I got to meet people I never would have met. Thanks so much to Ken Whitten (Dayspring) for thinking about me and bringing me a chicken sandwich, fries and a Coke! That was so kind of him. God has never abandoned us and for that I'm grateful.
