Today, I’m counting my blessings because it would be easy for me to be down in the dumps. I feel majorly yucky with a head cold, scratchy throat, runny nose and headache. Ridley seems like he has a little congestion, but nothing like what I have…I hope it stays that way! I missed church this morning, but the Lord blessed my heart here at home.
- I watched a live webcasted sermon on the return of Christ. I was reminded of the anticipation that we should have as we wait for His coming…like the excitement we have when seeing a dignitary with our own eyes…multiplied…times…infinity.
- I am amazed at my husband’s agape love for me. He let both Ridley and me sleep and I didn’t even hear him leave for church. When I woke up and saw that it was time for church to start, I almost panicked thinking that maybe he fell asleep on the sofa…but I saw that he was gone. So I went to the kitchen and stood there with tears in my eyes as I realized that he had done the dishes for me. Amazing man!
- I am thankful for life and health. Being sick is a good reminder of this! During the (thankfully) rare times that I’m sick like this, this poem has been such an encouragement to look at illness in a positive way of drawing closer to God.
I needed the quiet so he drew me aside
I hope that your thoughts are drawn to think upon our incredible Christ today.
