I was thinking tonight of all the things, travel, opportunities and people God has blessed me with every day of my life. There are more than I can name or even remember. I am so very grateful. It shows me unquestionably how unfathomably good God is. There are so many blessings. Every one of them was precious and purposed into my life, even the pain. I do not wish for a different past, a different upbringing, more of anything. I am so very thankful. And it hit me that God is perfect and good and loves me so much. He orchestrated my life like a poet in love, masterfully and exquisitely. He designed my days and provided restful sleep for my nights. He painted incredible scenes when He knew I needed them and allowed just the right encouragement at critical times. How precious is our Savior! How amazing is our God!!!😄❤
I wanted to share that as soon as my friends joined me in prayer over the sharp, shooting pain in my right torn shoulder ligament, God removed those sharp pains. I am going to rest it and do my part still to prevent further injury and promote healing, of course, but I am so happy that the 3 days of sharp pains are gone. I need to ask for prayer sooner. My Father God is the Great Physician who loves us and wants to heal us. Thank you for the prayers on my behalf. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!😄❤❤❤
So the birthdays left me a bit tapped out. I got a job offer- working 2 days a week for $3,000-$5,000/mo. I had hesitation from my husband so said no to it. So I told the Lord I was trusting Him to provide as He always did. And He gave me 6 consults in about a 6 hour commitment, including drive time. So God reimbursed me and/or rewarded me for honoring my husband’s leadership. And I just want to tell you that God takes care of us like that. And I enjoyed fasting today as I saw 2 of thr patients during a small part of the day and homeschooled a good bit of it. So God blessed me and I wanted to acknowledge the trustworthiness of God. You ask Him and He provides what you need most every time. Praise God!!!😄❤❤❤
So, today was Kat’s birthday. So, yesterday being my husband’s birthday that makes me having survived two important birthdays now in 2 days. The hardest part is keeping up with the meals and desserts. I always make a breakfast of choice and a dessert of choice from scratch for each person in the family. Also, there are gifts. Always have, always will until I am a very old woman or Jesus takes me home first. So, a birthday in my home is a big deal. To get through two in 2 days is exhausting but good. All went well with prayer and some fatigue.
Kat wanted a cookies ad cream cake (really wanted me to work for it) and Steve wanted an apple pie. So there ya go. He got his van washed and waxed and detailed and she got lots of legos.
And now I rest. God is very good and faithful to us all. I have a breather until her birthday party with her friends next week and then right around the corner is my son’s birthday ad we go again. But for now, I will enjoy some much needed rest and praise God for seeing me though another round of back to back birthdays.
Why do I make such a big deal about birthdays? I addessed this in a previous blot “Celebrating Birthdays” or some such thing. But in essence, I want to praise God for making these people who He chose to put in my life. It is a celebration of His work and plan and then my gratefulness for them and Him. He is so good and should be joyfully celebrated. 😄❤🎁🎂🎈
Praise God who answers prayers and took good care of my husband through his surgery! Home already and all went perfectly! Thank you who prayed for us and wished us well! Praise God!😄❤
What God made cannot help but convey His glory. Whether it is us humans or majestic mountains and fragrant, imaginatively designed flowers and plant life, graceful birds in flight or ridiculous water creatures, God is glorified. It is obvious His creation bears His fingerprints and breath. It is obvious He is wholesomely good when we peruse these things He crafted. You are a masterpiece, His crowning jewel and achievement. The moment you humbly call on Him, He is present, listening with glad eyes of love. Never forget this truth.😄❤
So, upon hearing of the impending Hurricane Dorian, my prayers have been focused on asking God to diminish the hurricane or flick it into the sea. And today, I received word from the meteorologist that the plots were all in agreement that thr hurricane was indeed flicked into sea and will be travelling north now in the Atlantic. And I tell you, God answers prayers every time we humbly pray. And sometimes, as in this amazing instance, He answers us the way we ask. But know that He always answers prayers for the best of everyone involved. And know this… God is so very good!!!! He is a loving Father and takes great care of His children. Praise God, who has proven yet again that He is bigger than any hurricane!!!❤❤❤
