As I drove my son to school today I had to wear his little kid sunglasses, as I can’t find mine. I looked like a big dork, with my hair band and mini glasses, and all I could think about is how happy I am.
Listening to my son’s sweet singing, about his hot wheels race car racing on the car door track, coming from the back seat, and seeing how beautiful this fall is…all I know is the peace God has given me in my heart.
We’re broke, borderline really broke.
My President isn’t who I voted for, but I support him just the same as I respect anyone who makes it into office (as everyone should).
BUT all of that will be exactly as it should, as I have faith in the Lord to keep me exactly in the center of his will … where I am safe in his arms. I know me and my family have everlasting life and that my friends is the big picture. The rest of this world will pass away, and all I can do is my very best in my mini-me sunglasses and almost running on empty car.
So these are the things I rejoice in in this day, Friday, that the Lord has made.
*My son takes my book everywhere with him…to his room, in the car, around the house. He’s so proud of me and it’s such a wonderful memory for me to see him love me so much.
*My parents and sister/brother in law are in Hawaii having the time of their life. I’m blessed they have this bonding time and are making special memories of their own. I wish I could afford to go, but am blessed they’re together.
*I miss my doggie everyday since he’s passed early this fall, but am so blessed to have had such a faithful companion for 14 full years. He was one in a million.
*God’s love is in my heart and I’m so glad he’s working on me. I am stressed about our finances, but I can’t serve to gods…only one! I have turned my stressful thoughts over to him, and continue to work hard. All I can do is be thankful He’s helping us make ends meet for now, and have faith this month he’ll do the same.
I pray you all think of how many blessings you have, even when you could have reason or excuse to be down in the dumps. COUNT them if only a handful and be thankful. It’s going to help you make it through the day…and today you just might need that.
Love to you all,
