It has been quite the week! Multiple hospital visits, putting out emotional fires, appointments, meetings, filling orders, and attending events. This is all part of ministry life and this week looks to be just as busy. I do love it, though I'm glad today is a bit of a down day. A day to reflect and give thanks for the many blessings in my life. A day to recoup and rest up before it starts all over again.
I'm thankful for a day to pray over many needs. I find that as I sew and fill orders, it's a perfect time to spend in prayer. I love spending time in prayer for the needs of my children, the healing of two dear people who are in the hospital. The comfort for another family who are grieving over the loss of a father. Prayers for our church family. And prayers of thanksgiving for the many blessings I see.
This week I'm also thankful for blessings #2466 - 2475.
