one more thing

As my bible study group is studying a book on being "content" in all situations, I have been pondering the scripture "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 4:6-7

This scripture boggles me. To not be anxious about ANYTHING is really hard for me. I have even been known to wake up at night with anxiety attacks. Our first few years of marriage were rough for Andrew in that at any given time I would wake up and hit him across the chest to let him know that I was up...
So, to bring this to today and my van saga, having no extra money in the bank, and Andrew being out of town, I started to panic. As I have these normal thoughts at 7:15am and the kids are sitting in the backseat of the van in 30 degree weather, our friends from church call and say, you can borrow our van while Andrew is out of town and call if you need anything. They come over, jump the van and help me get it to the shop. My wonderful sis-in-law comes to get the kids and takes them to school at a moments notice. Hummmmmm? Again, God shows himself to me in the tiny details of my day. Isn't He amazing...... I am thankful once again.....
