I currently look like the stick figure in this graphic, by the way. Yes - a little scary!
Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God. Psalm 147:1
I know I haven't been on in a while. Lena has had an ear infection, and now I am sick. But I just feel so thankful this morning. The wind is whipping through the trees and the rain is coming down. I am happily cuddled in my house able to nurse my sore throat and throbbing head. I'm thankful for this.
I am thankful for my rice bag. One of my favorite things at the end of the day is to crawl into bed, r-e-a-c-h with my toes, and feel the wonderful warmth of my rice bag under the covers. My sister made me a rice bag a few years ago, and just recently, my mom made me new ones because my old one was so worn out. Thank you so much, mom.
I'm thankful that my daughter loves books. This has been one of the most fulfilling things for me as a parent so far. I love reading to her and watching her thumb through book after book. It just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling!
Lena has just started coming up from the nursery to sit with us in church. She stays the first half hour, and then goes back to nursery. We are taking it slowly. I think I get a gray hair every time I hear her little voice talking out of turn during a prayer or Scripture reading, but she is definitely learning to be quiet. I love hearing her sing the hymns with us. She loves to sing, and seems in awe as all of her beloved church members sing in unison. It is truly special.
And just think, friends, every morning when we wake up - his mercies are new. Great is His Faithfulness.
I must go as my fever is causing the words to dance in front of my eyes. Have a happy day, my friends.
