It’s hard to believe that we’ll be heading to Denver soon. I always knew that if my all-time favourite band ever reunited – even if it was just for one show – I would be there.
What is really awesome is that my husband feels the same way, and wouldn’t you know we happen to have the same all-time favourite band!
As much as I looked forward to our trip to Cuba, there were some concerns that had me more worried than excited in the days leading up to our departure. And I can’t say that I’ve been waiting 8 years to see Cuba, but I have been waiting 8 years for Five Iron Frenzy to reunite.
Not to mention, the kids will be staying with their grandparents while we go to this concert. That eliminates two large, constantly-on-my-mind concerns right there. I know they will be in good hands while we’re travelling.
So the anticipation builds. It’s just less than two weeks until the concert – the first concert since they “quit” in 2003. And as if that wasn’t cool enough, I also get to have a personalized tour of Denver with Leanor “Jeff The Girl” Ortega Till. I probably mentioned that before. If I have, just bear with me, because I’m really really excited about it. I feel like there’s a kindred spirit just waiting to meet me. I’ve even made a gift for her (but shh! It’s a secret!).
There are some other things that I’m excited about right now too. Tim has a potential job opportunity closer to home. It may involve him having a company truck at his disposal and there’s a larger possibility of him being home on weekends – though it might not be every weekend. However, the proximity to home we’re talking about could mean that we get to visit him on the weekends he might not make it home.
It’s amazing just how God can answer prayer. Ever since the little Mazda died on March 1, we’ve been putting off buying a second vehicle. We had planned to consider looking at a vehicle after our trip to Denver because we wanted to make sure we still had some spending money for our trip. And I had to smack Tim a few times when I caught him looking at vehicles while we were in the lower mainland. Now, a second vehicle may not even be a major concern for us because of a possibility of a company truck for Tim to use to get to and from work.
I have constantly seen prayer answered in my life. I truly recognize these blessings and I am so thankful for a God who sees and who hears the desires of my heart, even when sometimes I can’t even see or hear them because the desires of my head are drowning everything out.
It’s amazing to me.
How has God answered your prayers, met the desires of your heart, lately?
