I have been so blessed recently! I still have the lovely flowers Michael brought me about a week ago and they still look gorgeous.
Last Friday Tiffany announced that she was giving me the day off; she called it a self-care day. I was floored! I mean what mom gets a day where she doesn’t have to cook, clean, or do for others and can just veg if that’s what she feels like doing. So blessed!
I actually spent quite a while playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I’m told that Michael enjoys watching me play, as does Tiffany and Sean. Later when I got off the game, I was asked what I wanted to watch on television that night. Now we don’t really watch much other than what we own. And frequently Michael and Sean don’t want to watch what I do and that is fine, because I’m extremely flexible. But that night I picked a short series we own and they didn’t shoot me down. (We tease that Michael is the King of No in the Land of No and he struggles to say yes to anything. Yes, we are joking but he does say no an awful lot.) We’ve continued watching the episodes in that series throughout the week on evenings that we watch something; we don’t watch television every night.
Then on top of that, Sean was home the same day and he asked what chore I had that I’d like him to do. He cleaned out the small chest freezer for me and I wrote down the contents as he refilled it. Once again, blessed!!!
Then Tiffany announced that she was giving me these self-care days twice a month! I cried. Literally cried. I really am sooo very blessed.
That was the same day that I wrote about on Monday where Michael had blessed me by going and getting the supplement I needed from town after having already been in town once that day and surprising me with those lovely flowers above.
I’ve been having a really great week. God is showing me His love for me and that I am important to Him and yes, even my prayers have been answered, in spite of how things may look. So I guess God has been renewing my hope for the things He’s told me. You know, the Word says that where there is no vision the people perish and that hope deferred makes the heart sick but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. (Proverbs 29:18 and Proverbs 13:12 respectively.) Sometimes in that time when you are believing for something, it takes so long for it to come that the heart does get sick, but God is still there and ready and able to renew your strength to continue believing. So hold on, dig deep, and keep trusting in Him and His promises. Oh, and let the words of your mouth line up with what you know in your heart will come to pass.
Until next time, God bless,
