update

So go read my previous post, if you haven't yet. Then read this one.

About ten minutes after I clicked "publish post", Chad and Lily walked in the door from their bike ride to the preschool our dreams to let them know, we just couldn't afford it, and  to put us on the list for next year, if they could.

Then about five minutes later, the phone rang.

It was the director of the preschool. She said, and I quote "As I walked away from Chad and Lily I had the strongest prompting that we should give you guys a scholarship. Would you be interested?"

Um, I was speechless. 

This is one of the best schools around here, these people can be picky who they let in if they want, like, there is a legit wait list to get in. They did not need to do this. 

We went in and  met up with her, talked about it, met some other workers there (it's a big school) and the head pastor (this is held at a Nazareen church)
I am so grateful for answered prayers, and for people receptive, and loving and who ARE the answer to prayers.

It proves to me that Heavenly Father, he blesses us with what we need, and also with our wants. Lily didn't necessarily NEED to go to preschool this year, especially such a nice school. But, I wanted it, and know it would be so awesome. And he gave me that. I seriously cant get over it. The Lord ALWAYS provides. Always.

Thats wonderful! we had a similar experience, we were hit hard financially the summer. I really wanted coleman to go to preschool but wasn't sure how we could afford it. a few days ago my mother in law called, she said "I know you' ve been struggling but I really want coleman to be able to go to preschool, so when the time comes let me know and I'll take care of tuition."
it's such a blessing and relief to know he will get to go!

I don't even know you, but I love you. The Lord does answer prayers, even when they are just wants and even when we didn't ask "officially". Thanks for the reminder.
