"The Silver is Mine and the Gold is Mine...."

Michelle and I were given a sweet reminder today of Haggai 2:8 that says, "the silver is mine and the gold is mine, declares the LORD almighty."

We are coming to the end of the month and things were getting a little tight financially, almost to the point of being in the hole. I was crunching some numbers and double checking our check book and bank account online when I noticed something unexpected.

Someone had given us $250.00 through our NAMB missionary account that posted this past Friday! I was stunned and had to get Michelle to verify what I was seeing. Not only did this help get our heads above water until I get paid next week, we will have enough left over for me to buy my books for class this semester (we totaled up the cost of those yesterday).

We're ashamed by the lack of our faith at times but praise God that he is faithful even when we may be faith-less. Soli Deo Gloria!!!


Talking Jesus Action Figure?

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc announced this past week that they will begin selling 12" talking Jesus dolls in 425 select stores around the county. This doll will be in additon to 3" figures of Daniel and 13" Solomon dolls.

According to their press release the toys will be on Wal-Mart shelves starting in August, mainly in the Midwest and South but also in California and as far northeast as Pennsylvania.
