Good morning dear sisters,
I've been reading your posts from last week and a couple from today's link-up. You all are inspirations to this writer.
Last Tuesday I was playing catch-up from the previous week and then during the weekend spent nearly two days at the hospital with my husband and I missed the deadline.
Our assignment from Holley was to spend some time during the week to: "play" "have fun" ..stepping away from my "havetos".. re-energize, laugh, laugh, laugh!
On Tuesday our weekly bible study finished our study of Romans Eight and as we discussed what the last lesson and the entire six weeks meant to us. We found ourselves laughing, smiling and laughing again. Most of us have known each other for a long time. Much love and acceptance is shared with one another while we dig deeper into the Word of God.
As we closed the study, we spent time praying for each other. Our hearts nearly broke for our precious sisters who have been walking difficult roads; one watching her husband's health challenges over more than 2 years now and the other grieved over the brokenness in family relationships. Tears flowed as we cried out to God for His comfort and grace for our sisters.
Lunch completed our time together and laughter once more filled the space where we sat. Life, lived with passion in our Lord's world!
This time with these precious sisters of my faith laid the foundation of God's strength that He knew I would need at the end of the week!
Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift of love to the world when He gave His Son that we might have LIFE and have it abundantly!
Loving Him and loving you,
P.S. My guy is recovering from a mild stroke and doing well. The entire time was an amazing display of God's grace and power. Will fill you in later. And don't forget to check out the God-Sized Link today and read some of my sisters posts.
