being wooed

So, THE coffee shop down here has free wi-fi. Yee-Haw. And they make a really good 'Spanish Coffee' Latte which I'd never heard of but I think the flavor is rum and brandy. What does this mean?

After a joyous 13 hour drive down here and a breakfast of cajun trail mix and Red Bull - we made it. I probably got a total of 2 hours of sleep last night and haven't been able to make myself sleep since we arrived. I imagine it will hit me about supper time. Sigh.

A totally cool God-proving-His-reality-to-a-child thing happened yesterday. The kids really wanted to go swimming while we were on this little trip and I told them we wouldn't be staying at a hotel at all so it was highly doubtful. I told them, specifically my oldest, that maybe if they prayed Jesus would give us the necessary finances to make that a reality but we didn't have the money to stay in a hotel one night. So she prayed.

Wednesday afternoon we received a letter from an old friend - with $27 cash in it. I told my disappointed daughter that, no, $27 would not cover a hotel room. Sorry. She lamented how on earth were we ever going to get the extra money by that night when we were leaving. I told her that it was pretty crazy for us to get $27 so you really never know. Imagine her wonderful joy when a guy from church handed my husband $100 cash for our trip at prayer that night - right before we hit the road! God is so interested in blessing His babies!

My daughter is being wooed by the wonderful love of an awesome God! So sweet.
