I haven't felt very newsy lately and now even sitting here in front of my computer, I am wondering WHAT AM I DOING HERE? Nothing much to talk about but then I usually find something right?
I just returned home from church. Mike is still there ushering the second service tonight. I just do not stay since we live so close to our church, it is easier to just take two vehicles. I guess I am not good at waiting. I would rather be here at home...reading my emails or like now..BLOGGING!!
We received word today via facebook that we lost a good friend back in our home state of Illinois. We both knew that he was bad with cancer and his wife knew that she only had him a little longer. They are about our ages too so I can only just imagine how Sharon is taking the death of her long time husband!! I know she is hurting very bad tonight. Bill was really sick so he is at peace now and that is what we have to remember.
I wanted to tell you about the cute International Children's Choir that we had this past Wednesday at our church. They were here last year but somehow I missed them. I took a few pictures which I will share...Just to let you know it was hard to take pictures because "they never stood still"...Not for one minute. I bet they were worn out after that service was over. They were so cute from many different lands. Afterwards they split up and came out into the congreation and hugged everyone. We had the cutest little girl come down our aisle..
Mike has had a couple of jobs this week...we are thankful for every job that he gets. I was reading in my bible a notation that I had made...I think i need this now more than ever and well maybe you do too:
What does Jesus say a worrier ought to do to cure the problem?
*Recognize worry is a sin and repent of it!!
*Cultivate an eternal perspective
*Trust God's providence
*Reaffirm your priorities
*Live one day at a time.
This is great advice!! I am so much less of a worrier than I used to be. Every day I believe that I am getting better. I think that since our home has not sold it is because God has not found us that right home for us to move to yet!! All in HIS TIME!!
Thought for the day: "Blessing i not the absence of trouble, it is the presence of the Lord in the midst of the trouble." (copied from my bible)
