This is Me
- Wanda Metcalf
- I'm a displaced South/Central Texan living in Louisville Kentucky
- I am a princess because I am a child of the Risen King! My background is Baptist, but believe I have a relationship not a religion. I married my childhood sweetheart and together we have raised two wonderful children and got them married off. I love everything about being a wife and mother. Now guess what? I am going to be a GRANDMA!! We are so excited for this next step in our lives.

A Grateful Heart
I have to stop and take a minute to say a word of thanks to my wonderful Father in heaven who has taken such good care of me and my family.
See we moved from Texas to Louisville Ky. to rehab homes then rent them and have the money go to mission work we had on our hearts. Our mission was to build schools and orphanages and teach them to be self reliant by selling and eating their own crops and making and selling crafts and goods. When we started building these homes the contractor we went with is a pastor and his friend. They ended up being nothing more than scam artist. This breaks my heart as he is a practicing pastor and is what people see as a man of God.
Well, we ended up after having a nice savings and no debt to now being bankrupt and we don’t know when we will be told to move from our home. In the middle of all that my husband was laid off from a very nice job he had for many many years with a comfortable income. Every time he has interviewed he has been told he is over qualified for the job.
Ok so here is my praise and gratitude. It’s April, it’s been two years since we have had any income. We don’t have any savings because of the bankruptcy we just don’t have anything left right? Wrong we have Jesus! He has not left us, because on paper we should not be able to be making it. If you look at all the things we are able to do and the fact that we eat, use heat in our home and are able to keep gas in the car, all these things just don’t add up. But my gracious Lord can provide and He does.
So today, Gratituesday I thank you dear Lord for all you provide for me.
