Safe Travels and Needs Provided

Yesterday our family set off on a little adventure.  We had a plan...but as I'm sure you know...plans don't always work out the way you...well...plan.  Anyway before we knew it, we found ourselves dealing with a flooded roadway...a long detour...unfamiliar territory...and rain.

Several times throughout the journey, I offered up a little prayer to God for protection. Once we arrived safely at our destination,  I thanked God for safe travels...especially during unexpected changes to the "plan".  

Yesterday, my August Quest was thankfulness for safe travels.  Our family has done a lot of traveling....during our several moves around the country...vacations...business trips...and visits to family and friends.  Yesterday, I was reminded of God's wonderful grace of safe travels He has provided for us journey after journey.

Along that same thought process...today I am thankful for God's provisions.  No matter where we are or what we are going through...it is clear to us that God always provides.  Always.  Does that mean our little family is never without want?  Hardly.  We are human beings after all...of course we can always find "wants".

Over the years, however, God has clearly provided for our needs.  I am so thankful for that.  I know throughout this world...even in this country...certainly in our state...I am guessing in our own town...maybe even on our very street...there are people who are truly in need.  

Through jobs, friends, and family our needs have always been met.  And truthfully....many many of our wants as well.  I don't take that lightly.  Today as I settle into our comfy bed I am so very thankful for God's provisions in our lives.
