It was a good thing too. When we arrived home from church, Jerry smelled gasoline outside the van and noticed a leak. When he put his hand underneath, it was definitely gasoline. Upon further inspection, he realized that it wasn't just an occasional drip. It was a consistent drip.
We had been invited to the home of some friends today for a meal after church. Now, I must preface this by saying that we don't know these people very well, but we'd been wanting to get to know them and felt it was a nice gesture to be invited to share a meal with them. We had called them prior to arriving to let them know what was going on and that we would be late as we switched cars and car seats and got changed and ready to go.
God is always so gracious to us and He continues to be faithful in every detail. Before we even arrived, these kind people called us back to say that they had an extra car sitting around that they weren't using at all and offered to let us borrow it this week until ours was fixed.
It may seem like a small thing, but at this season in our lives, this kind gesture was truly a gift from God. He is so good....all the time.
Here are a few highlights from our week and weekend. We hope you all had a blessed Easter as you celebrated with those you love and the One who loves you.
Our Easter cookies (thanks again, Diane!). I just love how the little duckies turned out.
Below: Cody singing in the kids choir at church this morning. What a treasure to see him sing, sign, and share the word of God through music. I was so amazed at how grown up and handsome he looked in his suit and the way he has grown in his faith.

What a cutie! Happy Easter everyone!
