What an amazing Friday I had! It was one of those days that started off well and was good to the very end....and let me add that the "end" of my Friday was actually very early Saturday morning!
The start of this wonderful day was early yesterday morning. I've been wrestling with some things in my life and as I started my prayers before my Bible time I just put it on the table for God, since I was unsure if the way I was handling it was right or not. Now, while I know that prayers are answered, I also know that sometimes we have to look to see those answers and that sometimes the answers are not necessarily what we want. But yesterday as I read through my daily reading I was led to a verse that was so exactly what I needed to hear that it brought me to tears - literally. It was such a humbling experience to me and was at the forefront of my thoughts during the entire day.
After work a friend picked me up to attend a crop and I told her about this and we had such a great conversation about it. I am so blessed with the friends I have and to be able to share things like this is so awesome. I know that I'm not conveying my thoughts adequately here, but it really was great! :)
We headed out to a fundraiser crop hosted by Turtle Girl Designs and of course had a wonderful time full of friends, laughter and even some tears. These two gals are truly God-given friends and the more I'm around them and see what they are doing the more I am just blown away by their drive, their talent and their love.
And of course after being up very late I am never able to get right to sleep - too wound up I guess! This week has been a little difficult for me healthwise and I've been very run down. I'm hoping it's just "one of those things" and not a step towards another flare. But luckily today I have no plans at all and just plan to rest. Thank you Jesus for sleep!
