Greetings to you on this Thursday morning! This week finds me thankful for…
♥ Millie's continued improvement. She told me 4th of July was the first day she had NO pain in her leg for the first time since mid-May! The home care nurse still comes each day, but the wound is definitely healing. The nurse told her not to get her hopes up…that she still may need surgery because there is still a blockage. She sees her doctor tomorrow. I told her we would continue to pray!
♥ relief for my son. He started working in early May for my brother-in-law’s commercial landscape and lawn care company. He was one of only three employees (including my brother-in-law). The business is doing very well, which meant many 12-15 hour workdays…hard workdays in the sun and heat. In the last week, my brother-in-law has hired three additional employees, which has made a world of difference! Instead of getting home at 9 or 10:00 at night, my son has been home by 5 or 6:00 (in time for dinner)! What a blessing!
♥the wonderfully relaxing holiday weekend! I spent lots of time just resting and hanging out with my hubby and son. In between the resting, I was able to get caught up on a number of organizational chores around the house, and that always brings me peace.
♥ A successful wrap-up on Tuesday of “He Speaks to Me,” our current office Bible study. We all agree is has been one of our most impacting studies…ever! (I highly recommend it!) Though a smaller group of ladies have taken part in this study, God is building some beautiful relationships through this smaller, more intimate group.
♥ The news of the birth of Katherine Lily "Kate" Jones, daughter of our precious friends (and former youth pastor) Mark and Andrea Jones, now missionaries to Ireland. Andrea’s last pregnancy ended in a miscarriage, so this was especially sweet. Click here if you’d like to read Andrea’s post on their blog about this blessed event.
♥ As always, this week also finds me thankful for you, my blog sisters! It never ceases to amaze me the outpouring of blessings I receive daily from you!
May this Thursday find you thankful…
