Rebecca Jo and Leslie for this weekly blog post once again. I hope you'll join us!
One thing that has stood out to me this week is how different my days are now. I know it sounds strange to list this first, but here's why I am thankful for this new season in life—I don't have anyone in the house with me, so it frees me up to pray more. I have time and the empty house to do this on and off throughout the day and out loud. I kind of love this! I am also still adjusting to the newness of it all, because my morning starts early as I get everyone out the door and make them lunches, but I'm figuring it all out. Add to this a puppy in the house and it's slightly chaotic and an adjustment to figuring it out, but I am managing just fine.
I am so thankful for the gift of prayer uttered on behalf of those I know who are sick right now. Many of you are following along with my pastor's wife with her being in the hospital and last night he updated us on how she was doing. She had another good day yesterday, one in which her numbers were better. Even if these are baby steps, I'm so glad they're baby steps heading in the right direction!
I'm thankful my friend's husband went home from the hospital too. I know she is beyond relieved.
I'm thankful for the conversation I had with my sisters yesterday as they drove home from an overnight trip.
I'm thankful that I got to see my friends last night after church ended! We met up for about an hour after that and it was so good to sit and catch up.
I'm thankful that last night I had a really good night of sleep and that I woke up feeling better today. I went to bed not feeling good last night. It's just sinuses again, because we keep having dips in the temperature. It got really cool here at one point yesterday in the afternoon and my ears started bothering me and my throat was scratchy. That's all gone today, though, thankfully.
I'm thankful for reminders like this.
And I'm thankful for a great day of Bible study homework yesterday. My friend mentioned this verse when she taught and I needed to hear the words.
Thanks for reading along! Love to all.
