We made it to the doctor, found out for sure Alissa had strep throat, headed to get her medication, and made the almost hour trip back home. Once home, Alissa took her medicine and crawled back in bed. Bill had already gotten back home and was rearranging the garage to make room for the new freezer before leaving to get the meat.
On his way home, he called worried we still weren't going to have room. I quickly cleaned out the refrigerator, keeping only what was absolutely essential as I listened to storms approaching from the same direction he was traveling with all the meat just thrown into the back of his truck.
Again, what was I to do but trust God would just make it all okay? Despite all the thunder and lightning, Bill arrived home without getting wet.
This is what three processed hogs in the back of a truck looks like. We flew trying to put it all in the freezer as it was quickly thawing. As quickly as we were moving, we somehow managed to keep the meat organized according to it's kind. I can't believe how fast we got it done! And guess what!? We had a little room to spare!
|The meat in the new freezer|
|Meat in our old freezer|
|Meat in our frig for canning- Boy did this make a HUGE mess|

|My husband and son ate until I thought they would get sick! Jake keeps|
asking if we can have it again tonight!
|This was out of this world! I wanted to act like a little piggy and just stick|
my face right in the pan! Rest at ease, I controlled myself. ;)
My God, our God, is SO good and loving! He has provided so much for my family the last few days. I can't sing His praises enough! I don't have enough words worthy enough to praise His great name! "O, For a thousand tongues to sing!" My friend, I wish I could pour out of me and into you what I feel for and know of my LORD! He is capable of so much more than what we have courage to even ask for! He loves you, and He is more than able to provide for your need! We must simply trust and obey. I hope my story gives you hope to trust Him and follow through with what He has asked you to do.
Until we meet again, may you be blessed!
