One last thought before I sign off….let’s be thankful for our loved ones surrounding us! We do not need to list the many reasons why…this past weekend was just another tragedy that left me thankful for all my blessings and most importantly my family. No matter how bad I feel, no matter how little energy I have….I want to remember how thankful I am that tonight I was able to come home to my loving husband.
To many days I get up, drag myself through the day, use my spoons and wish I could steal some one elses’ and some how manage to paste a smile on my face. But I take for granted picking up the phone and calling my husband. I take for granted I will see him in the afternoon or many other scenarios. Honestly we have to remember we have no guaratnee..lets take advance of loving on our family/friends while we have them around. Take every day and remember what we have to be thankful for.
I’m thankful (despite my REALLY upset stomach) for all my meds, my doctors, and most importantly my hubby. He sees the pain, he sees the side effects and yet he is still here loving on me daily.
Enjoy a great evening, a restful night and hopefully a less painful day tomorrow!
Have you ever sat in service and it seems like the message is meant especially for you? Today my pastor spent some time in the gospel of Matthew, chapter 6 and 11. He spent the message time bringing attention to how we should not spend our time worrying. Instead we should rest in the peace that our God is ever-present. I listened and I could not help but think of all the things that have been “worrying” me – my presentations, my MAJOR class paper, my insurance, our finances since I lost my full time job, etc. etc. The list never ends…but as I listened to my pastor, I could not help but realize…I could spend day in and out worrying about these things…the truth is that won’t change them.
My presentations will be made whether I am ready or not …so I need to do everything I can do to get ready and then leave it up to the Lord. Same for my major paper…and my insurance…my worrying won’t fix it. Instead (probably the same for many) the more I worry…the worse I feel!
So my new mindset for the week…pray more..and worry less!!! And hopefully maybe hurt less!
