Good to smell the roses today
Am feeling rather tired having been up since 2.20 am when we were woken by the screech of tyres from our new car that was being stolen.
That was up-setting enough until we realised that in order to get the keys the thieves had broken into our home while we were sleeping and on their way through our dining room decided that our mobile phones were worth taking too.
How blessed we are to have house church neighbours who care.
One lady opposite who saw the escape came and sat with us until the police left at 5.30 am
Since then so many others have visited to offer support and pray.
We cannot praise the police enough who came quickly, were supportive, friendly, caring and offered all the help we needed.
They also complimented us greatly by saying it was a pleasure to be dealing with such nice people when so many they dealt with were difficult and abusive. Said it distressed them to see such nice people violated and hurt.
When lying quietly later I could only pray for those people who drove our car away, that the Spirit of God that was sustaining us would touch them through having been in a spirit filled home, driving a spirit filled car with phones full of the phone numbers of spirit filled people.
We are now trusting that the courtesy car will arrive on time on Monday so that we can continue with our holiday plans.
We pray too that our car will be found quickly and be returned undamaged after the forensic team have given it a once over.
Do join me.
