Sigh. Well, after the last couple of days in the hospital (see "Journey to Recovery") - I was given direct orders from Dr. Tris, the nurses, my children, my husband ... REST for this weekend! :-) So, I guess I will be "forced" to obey! LOL
Spending the time working on the website/blogs ... cleaning up the computer ... working on some pictures/scrapbooks ... watching movies with hubby ... talking on the phone ... texting ... reading ... praying ... journaling ... drinking LOTS - water, tea, coffee, juices ... enjoying fruits ... Rick said he would help me fix spaghetti for supper (no tomato sauce, alfredo only) ... enjoyed a visit with Rick's parents ... looking forward to spending a little time with my daughter and her bunch ... Rick's sister said she would be coming up ...
Rick and I were talking about everything ... we don't agree with God all the time when He allows something to happen - but then, He doesn't need our agreement! He is God! We are not.
We ask God to "Bless us, enlarge our territories, keep your hand on us, and keep us from evil and temptation that we won't cause pain" ... and then when He does - but not like we were talking about, we complain! God has already enlarged our territories thru all of this. No, we would not have chosen this way to have our territories enlarged, but there again - He is God, we are not. We see with the eyes of this world and light ... God sees with the eyes and light of eternity. Big, Big difference!
I told Rick (and Bro. Jeremy) that it sure would be easier to have faith if either had money in the bank for the bills, or knew for sure that the money was coming in! LOL Course, I was told that then it wouldn't be faith ... but it would to me! LOL Oh, I'm still trying to convince God that that would be faith, too! LOL Not working very good ... but hey, gotta give me credit for trying! LOL
We received an invitation to get together with Bro. Jeremy and his family this next week - for a potluck supper at their house. I am looking forward to it! It will be good to visit and fellowship with others! I'm sure there will be good food and lots of laughter! :-)
I know that a lot of people complain about Facebook - but I want to take a moment and say that I am so thankful for Facebook! Especially during all this time with health crisis - Rick and me.
There have been so many prayers and thoughts ... so much encouragement ... wisdom and suggestions ... It's been awesome! Sure has gone a long way to make us feel not so lonely and alone in this darkness!
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
