For Today . . . August 25, 2010
Outside my window . . . it is a cool 66 degrees! Can you believe it?
I am wearing . . . pj’s.
I am hearing . . . the high school marching band practice. Football is right around the corner!
From the kitchen . . . We’ve been eating out a lot lately since we have no air conditioning in the kitchen right now. I am going to my folks tonight and will fix taco soup.
I am creating . . . There is not much time for creating right now.
I am looking forward to . . . my sister’s visit this weekend.
I am thankful . . . for God’s righteous right hand. It upholds me.
I am praying . . . for physical and emotional strength for my mother. She is not doing well at all. I wish I could do more to ease her burdens.
I am thinking . . . how magnificent it is to serve a God who makes beauty out of ashes.
I am remembering . . . how strong my mother was most of my life. She was physically and emotionally strong. She had strong hands. She worked hard and she definitely ruled the roost. Her eyes are dim now and her hearing has faded. She has tremors and can no longer write. She has a shunt in her brain, a pace maker, and stints in her heart. She is no longer independent. She needs me like I needed her as a child.
I am noticing that . . . when God comes in the 12th hour, it is right on time.
I am pondering these words . . . “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.” Matthew 5:7
A moment from my week . . . my mother passed out this week in a parking lot. We could not detect heartbeat or breathing. My husband started chest compressions and revived her. I know God must be getting her room ready. She is so very weary and weak. Pray for her should you think about it.
Something you may not know about me . . . I am the youngest child in my family.
One of my favorite things . . . is the privilege to help my parents as much as I can. They’ve done so much for me, and now it’s my turn.
For my picture journal . . . I'm the baby in this picture, and that's my momma.
