Last week was really stressful.
Dallas got his school schedule squared away for his first semester at the University of Utah, and we realized he would only be able to work 5 hours A WEEK. That makes it difficult to provide for a family.
Hence all the stress.
For some reason I have been feeling pretty peaceful about the whole situation. This is not normal as I am the one who frets in our relationship. Over the last few years we have been so blessed by our Heavenly Father. Every time we start to get a little stressed about money, something ends up coming our way to bridge the gap and I knew that somehow He would provide for us once again.
I was right. In the last week since we've learned about the new schedule, we were recipients of extra financial aid for school that we didn't realize was coming, Dallas bought and sold a truck making a great profit, and the county just called him today asking him to install 6 monuments in Center Street. These things are the tender mercies our family really needed right now and we are so grateful.
On Tuesday, after a very fun and long day swimming and picnicking with our friends the Perkins', we saw the most glorious rainbow- the one in the picture. It was so brilliant that each color segment was easy to see, even the violet. As I downloaded the pictures today I thought of Noah. After dealing with all that rain for all those days I'm sure he was wondering, "Wow, is this ever going to stop? Are we ever going to get out of this mess?" Then the rain did stop, and the Lord sent him the rainbow so he would know that he was watched over. He was heard. He was loved.
Heavenly Father loves us. Pay attention, the signs are everywhere.
