"Led By the Holy Spirit"

Yesterday was a little busy. I actually would have liked to take a nap, but there are things to do! I was getting my bank account updated, paying bills, getting that stuff squared away before the baby comes. Four o'clock was rolling around and I had not even thought about dinner! I really liked when I was planning out my menu for the week, but that has been on hold for the past few weeks - yes, we still eat, but I have not planned out the whole week ahead of time. Anyway, I really did not feel like making dinner, but I also did not feel like spending money to get some sort of take out. Well, we would think of something to make - maybe even something simple like pasta.

Secretly, I was wishing that someone would have invited us over for dinner...but it was kind of late for that - wishful thinking!

From about 4:30-5:00, I was on the phone with various people. Our car had to have some body work on it (which another person was paying for since they caused the damage), then it needed an oil change, inspection and who knows what else they will find! :) I was making the arrangements to have the car moved from the body shop to the dealership, making sure that things would be paid correctly, etc.

Well, as soon as I got off of the phone, it rang again and it was my next door neighbor. She asked me if I had started making dinner yet...my answer was obviously "no", and then she went on to invite us over for dinner last night! I could not believe it! I told her that I really did not feel like making dinner that night and I had just been talking with Dawson about it.

Her reply was, "well, I guess that I was led by the Holy Spirit." We had a really great time at their house, and the commute was great! I am so thankful for the neighbors that the Lord has given to us.

That is so awesome! I have days like that too. Usually my MIL comes to my "rescue".

I'm sure you had a great meal. I think of your neighbor almost everytime I cook. (I bought most of my Pampered Chef from her.)
