The Lord Provides

Mrs. Roy has written before about how we burn wood around here to heat the house in the winter.  Mrs. Roy had a big pile of wood - about the size of the one in this picture - but we burned through it this winter.

Last week while Mrs. Roy was at church, a friend came up and said he had been cleaning up some limbs that had fallen at his mother's house and would I like to have some wood?  Not only did he give it to me - he delivered it to my house!  Just so you will know, Mrs. Roy did offer to come get it.
 So Mr. Roy and I spent this beautiful Saturday morning cutting the wood to stove size, splitting what needed splitting and stacking it into a humongous pile.

The Lord is good to provide for us; He knows our needs before we do.  Thank you, Lord, for good friends and good firewood.  I'm sure we'll be thanking Him again when winter rolls back around.  For now, this wood pile is a testament to God's love for us.
