Weekly blessings...

God is good, all the time! 

This week I had to hesitate in writing about my weekly blessings. It was a tough week for me. As a mom, a friend, a Children's Ministry Director of our church, and as a daughter. If you read my previous post, you know that a young mother from our church was killed in an auto accident this past week and really rocked my world. I found myself asking God why and questioning His ways. After some really silent time just listening to Him and seeking what He has for me concerning this situation, I am finally able to re think about His blessings upon me this past week and can finally write them down. 
  • Our vehicle needed to be looked at. It was making some weird noise in the rear wheel area. Praise God it was completely covered by the warranty and I walked out paying nothing for the repair!
  • How during times of heartache and troubles, God knits us together and uses women of Faith to encourage each other and offer their shoulders and their own tears.
  • A husband that once again, lets me deal with things in my own way, knowing me better than I know myself and letting me work out things for myself; still knowing that he is right there beside me when I am ready to reach out for him.
  • Being a volunteer at our local worship radio station!! I had a blast answering phones during their spring pledge drive. Doing just that little thing for the benefit of God's Kingdom, made me so happy and content, and I met and hung out with some really great people :)
  • Watching my teen girl make JV softball, swing Varsity as a freshman!!! She has been playing since she was 4, playing T-ball and finally all her hard work and dedication is paying off! Kendra, I am so proud of your persistence and dedication, I love you!
So, still praying for this grieving family and thankful to all who are thinking of me and praying for me. I know that God is in control and so glad that this pain here on earth is only temporary and we have something so much better for us in the future!
