Today is Friday and I usually participate in PFP, but my scanner is not working and my husband, who would be the only one capable of working that thing again, is gone. I would admit it, I am not afraid to say it out loud, I am no one without my husband. I can work these things, but if they break, I need my hubby to get them working again... I ain´t no electronic gal (did I mention I learned english in the south ;))
I spent all morning painting the girl´s room. It was a while back when I showed you the photos of what I was going to do, but haven´t been able to do it because we were planning on moving to a different house. With the crisis, all the houses were going down on prices and we were looking for something cheaper to take advantage of the crisis.... hehe
Anyhow, my God is great, and He just got my actual landlord to bring our rent down a good bit so we don´t have to move. It is not finish yet, especially now that the girls are out there and the floor is full of girl´s toys again. But I will show you a photo next week. Let´s just say that after painting the room I am feeling like strawberry bubble gum ;)
This morning I was reminded again of my need to be thankful and take advantage of every day God gives me on earth. There are things we take as for sure on a daily bases that are not ours to be sure of.
Marriage is one of them in my case. But I look around and I see all those broken marriages, the infidelities, the abuses, and I realize what I have is nothing but a blessing from God. I praise God for a husband that loves me, but loves God even more. Because I know that as long as God is number 1 in His life, I would be there, second on his list. And that is not something I should be taken for granted.
Another thing is my kids health, mine and my husband´s. Cancer, and so many other sickness are filling up our prayer request lists. I praise God for healthy children, and for my healthy husband. Health is not something to be taken for granted either.
So, what happened? The wife of the assistant pastor of my home church in AL passed away this morning. She had heatlh issues because of her age, but her death was a surprise to everyone. She wasn´t in the hospital. She died, I guess, while she sleep. What a sweet way to die, you fall asleep and you wake up with Jesus, praise the Lord!. But if you would remember her family in prayer I would appreciate it. Pastor Boruff, her husband; her children, grandchildren. Pray for grace, that His name may be glorified in all this.
Have a wonderful weekend everyway and hold on to God´s blessings, that are not to be taken for granted.
