God Meeting Our Needs!

On Monday following the fire the Red Cross had small blankets to give the kids. There is a lady in town that makes these blankets for children in need and the Red Cross distributes them as needed. I was very touched and the kids were tickled to have the blankets. Below is a picture of the kids with their blankets. 
 Over the next few days we had a list of things that needed to be taken care of. We ate out every meal that first week. Things were crazy and our minds were in no shape to think about anything. There were moments when we would cry or remember something that we missed and cry some more. One of the first things Joanna asked was "Did my pillow burn up?" and our answer was yes. Then she asked "Mommy, did your pillow burn up?" My heart just hurt for her. This will be something that our kids will never forget. They will also NEVER forget how God has met our needs through the love and generosity of others being poured out on our family.
That first week so many reached out to us! I can not begin to list all of those who have sent a card, text, clothes, presents, etc. to meet our family's needs. Since this happened right at Christmas there were those who reached out by giving our children Christmas gifts. Thank you!!!
