Monday started with another expensive visit to the vet for our little Ashley. Apparently her colon nerves are not optimally firing and this is leading to some…ahem…problems, as you can well imagine. You think you have problems? I pray that “your colon nerves fire optimally” may well be a gracious prayer to pray on any given day. Go ahead say it…Um…Eewwww!
Tuesday brought another unexpected adventure with animals into my life, as I shared here on the blog. I encountered a Merciful Moment with a dying bunny and the plans I had made for the day were suddenly changed.
Wednesday I have set aside for my Hub’s Mom, Grace. This week he and I went to visit and have lunch with her. We also helped arrange her hutch with all her little lifelong treasures. She and my Father In Law had moved in February to their new apartment on the first floor of their second eldest son’s home just before he passed away this April. She gave me a sweet little Tea set – it is actually an espresso set but I think it is adorable for a “spot” (literally) of tea, as well!
Thursday is the day I pray with some lovely ladies at my daughter’s school (Moms In Prayer). Since last week I was a teensy bit discouraged initially that none had come and I prayed alone, I was ecstatic to have a partner with which to pray! I had planned (see the theme of the week) to head to a coffee shop for some quiet time after prayer BUT the Lord had other plans…first I had a text from a mom asking for me to serve lunch for her (we alternate weeks). That was no problem. Then the art teacher asked me to decorate some cans to be used as pencil holders: FUN and I used the the scraps I had from the star punches I had already started on- darn I should have gotten pictures! WaLa: time was gone, POOF! But it was wonderfully perfect how God had my day all worked out again, and is all I needed to be was AVAILABLE to Him and flexible with my plans!
Saturday My daughter got to connect with her “Fairy God-Mother” and attend a Ladies event at my old church. I attended a lovely shower for our Pastor’s daughter and got to catch up with a special friend.
Sunday Are you still there? I got a special blessing of a leather bound Thompson Chain Reference Bible. I gave my last one away years ago to a young man at church who could not afford one! He loved it and I know got much use out of it. I am not one who is short on Bibles, friends. But I want to tell you, this is a special treat to me. I am so excited about it-I almost don’t want to read it, but just adore it with my eyes- Don’t worry, I promise to thoroughly EAT it all up! I promise I won’t just gaze upon it’s loveliness without digesting the words! I also am reading these gems from our Church Library which I am excited to be helping organize this Summer. Are you sitting? I am ecstatic to have these books to read:
