1000 Blessing's Friday

301. Knowing that God is in control. My household is going through some major trials right now. All three of my children are going through difficult times right now. I can see one daughter growing closer to God and one daughter pulling away. My son wants the world, but knows it can lead to sin. Please pray for each of them. I know His plan is perfect, it's just hard to watch sometimes being their mom.

302. Grace. To know that even when we pull away from Him, He is waiting with open arms and forgives us of our sins.

303. My friend, Lori. God has brought her along side me to help me through this difficult time. She recently went through many of the same challenges. God's timing. I'm telling ya people!

304. Growth. During this time I have drawn closer to Him. There were days when I felt like I had no one. I always seem to do this. I pray, but I think I pray not believing. It's easy for me to pray for other's needs except my own. This time around He's my rock. I have had to confront family members of their sin. Not an easy thing to do. Especially when they blame everything on you. I question myself constantly. Am I wrong? Has my heart hardened because of the pain? I want to glorify Him in all I do. I am at peace now.

305. Awana! We have a large group this year compared to last year's 10 girls. On Wednesday we had 26 with 5 of our regular girls missing. Pretty cool. And they are eager to hear the stories from the Bible and are very receptive!

306. New friends. I love Facebook and have made several new friends that live pretty close to me. I hope to meet them soon!

307. Protection. If you see the post below you'll now why I am blessed!

308. Health. I went to Vegas and didn't take my crutches! I still need to use an electric scooter to go to stores and stuff, but I can walk and stand for longer periods of time without my back giving out. And for the first time last Monday night I went grocery shopping completely by myself! This is a huge accomplishment for me and I was so excited I know I looked silly smiling he whole time, but who cares!

309. Dollar Menu. Yep. Vegas was uber expensive, but several restaurants had dollar menus! And McDonald's sweet tea! Yummers!

310. Time. Tomorrow I am not coming into the shop to work. I need to take the morning just for me. I never get to do that. Ever. I want to take the longest shower I've ever had and use all my girlie type soaps and lotions. I'm going to pamper me. Then back to the real world! LOL

And I LOVE sweet tea....yeah...it's still only $1.00 here in NYS the state with the highest taxes ever! but hey...I only paid $2.39 for gas today...I was shocked....that is way cheaper than the last 2 years. Praise God...
