I’m thankful for 23

Happy Monday everyone! It was a fine weekend, was it not? I actually had one of the busiest past 5 days in well over a year. Having to do something each and every day and whew! it wore me out.

My feet aren’t quite ready for doing stuff every single day, just yet. And to think, the doctor thought I’d be running after 2 weeks. Puh! I can barely walk without looking like an idiot.

But…

I’m thankful for

- being able to walk. At least I have that.

- a great group of women in my bible study. They’re so fun to hangout and grow deeper in the word with. I look forward to every Sunday evening we get to get together.

- for the ways God answers prayers. It’s amazing how no matter how much you do everything in your power to keep something from happening, if He wants it to happen, it will.

- all the quiet time I have in my life right now. I’m sure at some point in the future, I won’t have a tenth of this quiet and alone time, so I figure I’ll appreciate it now even though it’s been hard to lately.

- knowing I’m taken care of. I don’t know why I worry or get down over things but as this verse floats around with people posting it for themselves, it’s a big reminder for me to not fear and get discouraged over things in my life.

Jeremiah 29:11
’For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.

I hope this verse can soothe you today in the way you need. Have a wonderful start to your week, my friends!
